Every child deserves a chance! A chance to learn. A chance to attend school. Every child deserves an Education. Through our initiative- Jagriti Vidya Mandir, we provide that holistic learning environment.
Why limit ourselves to Gopali when we could help uplift weaker sections of society across the nation? Hence our Expansion Initiative- LIGHT.
A chance for socially motivated students,non-GYWS members, from IIT Kharagpur to help us in our cause.
GYWS is delighted to welcome
Sub-Divisional Officer Mr Azmal Hossain

Gopali Youth Welfare Society (GYWS) was established with the objectives of making people aware of problems faced by the modern society. It also aims at helping people's social, economic and cultural development and encouraging them to find out solutions to their problems on the basis of locally available resources.
Since its establishment in 2002, Gopali Youth Welfare Society has successfully launched and carried out several training and develooment activities in and around the Gopaili. In the past we have established rural libraries providing vocational training to the people from under-privileged section of society beside carrying out several awareness generation programs. We express our gratitude to them and our well wishes.
Having attended some GYWS events, the determination of
the students to make a change amazes me. This is worth
applause that they have taken the initiative to work for the
underprivileged. | feel privileged to have such students in the
campus who seek to give back to the society. Hope to see
GYWS as well as other students come forward with more
I was happy to see the diverse activities being taken up by the Gopali Youth Welfare Society. The social commitment being continuously shown by the students and faculty of IIT Knaragpur to share knowledge and time with the inhabitants of Gopali and its surroundings is laudable. I was also impressed with the details of expenditure for the last few years which they have displayed on the website. I wish them all the best and send my good wishes.
I would like to recognize Gopali Youth Welfare Society at IIT
Kharagpur at which I
found out about when I visited PAN IIT GLOBAL
CONFERENCE 2012 and what I said was about, you have
got to establish a cause you would like to give back to and
I'm extremely happy this organisation exists within IIT Kharagpur
Society is purely the extension of ourselves. Though we stepped in 2l® century there are still several bleak aspects remain in our society especially in the developing countries like India. Illiteracy, poverty, lack of health consciousness, lack of social consciousness, lack of worldly knowledge are major arnong them.Out of these sacred some of the educated youth grouped together to do something in the field and GOPALI YOUTH WELFARE SOCIETY came into being.
The fact that a group of students of IIT Kharagpur run a fully-fledged NGO leaves me filled with immense pride. As an advisory committee member of GYWS and having closely observed all their activities. They are breaking the trends which see IITians aiming at bagging high salary jobs as soon as they enter the campus. These people are contributing back to the society and their contribution is making a difference.
