The Education Policy of the Guntur Diocese Social Service & Welfare Society (GDSS&WS) is primarily based on the “National Policy on Education” that was framed by the Government of India in the Year 1968. The GDSS&WS was convinced that the education policy was essential for the social and cultural development of children from the Scheduled Caste, Scheduled Tribe and Backward Class communities to whom they are committed. It would instil in them national integration and the ideal of a socialistic pattern of Society. This will involve a transformation of the system to relate it more closely to the life of the people, effort to expand educational opportunity, effort to raise the quality of education at all stages, emphasis on development of science and technology and cultivation of spiritual, moral and social values. The educational system must produce young man and women of character and ability committed to national service and development. Only then education will be able to play it vital role in promoting national progress, creating a sense of common citizenship and culture and strengthening national integration. Only then education will be able to play its vital role in promoting national progress.


To institutionalize this grass root orientation, the GDSS&WS works through its 85 parishes or local units covering more than 729 villages in the district, spread over the total 57 Mandals in the 4 revenue divisions. Each parish consists of a cluster of 7 to 8 villages, including their hamlets and Scheduled caste and Scheduled tribe locations. The parish priest is appointed president and resides in the area. He constitutes a local committee of community leaders, who are the elected representatives of the gram panchayats as well as the people affected, women, youth, professionals available in the area, teachers, bank officials, government servants. This committee also interacts with the on-going state sponsored development programs and agencies at the Mandal and Gram Panchayat levels.


All Human beings are created in the image and likeness of God. Hence Gender equality is the basic factor for all men and women.

Human Resource Policies are the formal rules and guidelines that all the DSSS's put in place to train, assess and reward the members of their work force. These guidelines can go far toward eliminating any misunderstandings between employees and employers about their rights and obligations. Sound human resource policy is a necessity in the growth of any DSSS. It is an important guide for all those who wish to render committed service.
