Great News: Gurap student population nearly triples

Original post by Annette Venables | December 19, 2022


Our high school construction is getting noticed! When the new school year begins in January, our currently enrolled students will welcome 305 new friends. That’s a total of 478 students! And that number continues to grow daily as word gets out that Gurap St Xavier’s is open and serving students through middle school.

A full scholarship is $492/year or $41/month. This gift provides room and board; nutritious meals; clothing/uniforms; textbooks and educational materials; music, dance and sports programs; and basic healthcare.

Please consider donating here to provide a life-changing scholarship to a child in need.

To see how your support will benefit our students, meet Lipika Tudu, a girl in the 6th class at our school.

I’m Lipika Tudu studying in 6th Standard at St. Xavier’s Gurap. Fr. Vinay tells us always to dream big and study well.

I love to stay in hostel and study; I don’t like to stay at home. Fr. Vinay had taken us for educational tour to Kolkata. I saw for the first time, Kolkata city, St. Xavier’s College Kolkata, St. Xavier’s University and big buildings.

After finishing my class 12th from St. Xavier’s School Gurap, I will study in St. Xavier’s College and become a teacher. I‘ll earn money, make a big building, buy a car and look after my parents. Here I’m grateful to Fr. Vinay, Fr. Markus, Brother, Sister and all my teachers. I pray to God that all of us keep in good health and mind. My only desire now is to study in St. Xavier’s College. Thank you.

We at Tribe Rising India are so grateful for your support. With your help, the lives of these 478 children and their families will be transformed forever!

Help us build up our growing student body:
  • Honor someone special by gifting a scholarship in her or his name(s)–a great holiday gift for that someone who has everything! 
  • Donate to our capital campaign or annual fundraiser to help us complete the Gurap K-12 campus.
