GESSUP means awakening. In a society where economic inequality is an accepted norm and millions feel bereft of hope, we at GESSUP strive to awaken them to a dream. That dream is to make tomorrow better than yesterday, to be gainfully employed and to enhance the lives of the families that they belong to. We endeavor to find the ways and means to arrest the ever-widening gap between the haves and have-nots. There is inequality in the spheres of information availability, educational facilities, health care, and communication to name a few and consequently, large portions of our nation have little access to the necessities which are essential to improve the quality of lives. Apart from the above, gender inequality is a challenge that erodes the social fabric of our nation. Our experience as a rural-focused microfinance entity has made us realize that the women who run the millions of households across our villages have the innate ability to endure and progress.
