A school for children from affluent backgrounds, Gayaza High School is driven by the belief in growing a generation of self reliant, empathetic, and responsible leaders. It has also inspired the students to start other initiatives to support children to stay in schools. Furthermore, Gayaza High School uploads its lesson plans online as a means of sharing their insights and teaching methodologies to benefit other students around the region.
- Through research on time and responsibility, the students from affluent families have developed a program which allows them to reach out to a nearby public school and tutor their less fortunate peers in math, resulting in academic improvement for the primary school students they work with.
