Gayatri Devi Junior High School, Gaini Village
This is a private school established in 2006 by Mr. Ashok Bisaria, a retired Government school teacher. The school caters to 529 underprivileged kids whose parents work in the local agricultural fields or employed as workers embellishing clothing (embroidery, zari work). 50% of the kids cannot afford to pay any fees, and the remaining pay a meagre Rs. 1,000 per year. Given the high number of kids enrolled, it is evident that this school is the only affordable means of education to them. The impoverished local community is unable to help in any way, and without the dedication of Mr. Bisaria and his family, these kids are likely to not receive any education at all. Mr. Bisaria and 5 of his family members are dedicated to running the school, from teaching to administration, just to provide the kids with an opportunity to learn.

A formal MoU (Memorandum of Understanding) was signed between Mrida and OSAAT on May 11, 2017, which paved way for the construction. Construction began immediately for the proposed 6 new class rooms. The design aimed to create a unique structure using locally available materials to address climatic & local needs. After 6 months of non-stop construction, involving numerous visits by the engineers, architect, volunteers, the construction was completed as per the specifications and quality standards of the plan.
