The SSESA team, comprising Charles Dias, Terence de Souza, Ronnie Mascarenhas and Royce D’Silva, visited Gnanmata Adivasi High School at Uplat, Talasari on Saturday. 16th September 2017.

On this occasion, we intentionally chose to visit the school on a working day, in order to gain a realistic understanding of the school, its facilities, its present academic activities and problems. We had a general discussion with the management and learnt of their successes and difficulties. We were surprised to hear that they accommodate approximately 87 students per classroom.

We later interacted with students of the 10th standard on their studies and on general issues. They were very appreciative of the new benches/desks they were utilizing. The cost of these benches was co-financed by SSESA through very generous contribution by our fellow Stanislite, Dr. Keki Gharda.

During this visit, we gifted each student of the school with a ball point pen, on behalf of SSESA, – a total of 1100 pens.

On an earlier trip to Uplat, on 8th January 2017, on behalf of SSESA, we had gifted each of the tribal boarding students, with a towel and soap – a total of 220 of each.

The innocent smiles on the faces of the tribal students are enough to know they really need and appreciate all that SSESA is doing for them, making us want to return to Uplat and do more … much more!
