ProjectGairsainIntroduction As part of the annual activity of PG Group, Project Gairsain was identified for social awareness camp cum sponsorship programme. The roots of this initiative were sown in year 2006, when PG Group launched its first ever social awareness camp in Puryadaang Inter College in Pauri Garhwal. The camp was the first learning for the PG Group and had a great success. Based on the learning of Puryadaang, we were all set for executing our second Awareness Camp in Gairsain, Chamoli Garhwal. A team of volunteers was identified who joined the Task Force of the Project Gairsain for making the entire initiative successful. Funds were also generated through members and other people of Uttarakhand for “Scholarship Programme”.
Project Summary
Gairsain Project Task Force Team comprising 10 members (8 Males + 2 Females) was all set for executing the Project. The team departed from Delhi on 19th night in a Tempo Traveller. Two members of the Task Force were to join from Mumbai directly in the Gairsain.
On 20th July morning, the team took first halt at foothills of Nanital District (i.e. Ramnagar) where the team spent some time in freshening up and then again started up the journey. The next immediate destination of the Task Group was “Maasi Village” where Shri Ram Swaroop Masiwal had made the prior arrangements for task force members for taking rest including meal arrangements. Prior reaching Maasi, we took another halt at Chaunliya Inter College, Almora where we met with Shri Bala Dutt Sharma (uncle of Kaliash Dhoundiyal) and discussed on various topics & initiatives related to education. Somewhere at 11:30 a.m., Task force Team arrived at Maasi where it was welcomed by Shri Masiwal. The first thing the team did was to pay a visit to Temple and then most of the members preferred to take a bath in the adjacent river. The entire team then visited at Shri Masiwal’s home. We all had lunch there and then we took a short nap before we started our journey for Gairsain. Soon the weather changed and we all got a big relief from the burning sky. We had not expected such a change in weather as temperature dipped unexpectedly. Finally, we reached Gairsain, where Principal of the school, Shri D S Panwar ji had already made arrangements for welcoming us.
The programme in school was to start at 8 a.m. on 21st July, 07. The Task Force team of PG Group was on time though school administration took some time in making logistics arrangements due to rain because of which the programme delayed and started at 9:20 a.m.

OurFindings……at GIC Gairsain,Chamoli
1. Even the school & place is very famous, students were totally unaware and ignorant of happenings around them. 2. The students were totally unaware of their future career. 3. The cultural, social and religious systems restrict women’s education, economic independence, and political and social participation. 4. Women are still accustomed to subordination. Male dominance is seen & is very common. 5. Almost all are unaware of governmental welfare programs that are designed for them. Even not a single student was aware of RTI. PGG Task team has given them tips for all the schemes/acts. 6. Students & people of the region are still unaware of the concept of self-help programs. 7. Many of the adults abuse alcohol and drugs adversely affecting their economic condition and health. Transportation,Boarding&Lodging..byPGGTeam..!! The expenses arising on account of transportation, boarding, lodging and any other misc. expenses during the trip were borne by the individual members of the Task Force of Project Gairsain who participated in the Camp voluntarily. Per head cost worked out to be Rs. 1850/-for the trip.
The intent of sharing this report of the Project Gairsain with all the members of PG Group is to seek individual feedback on the efforts being put in by the PG Group for completing the Gairsain Project successfully.
