Priority SDGs for GSF

SDG 2: Zero Hunger

At our schools, we support this goal through regular food donation drives and by educating our students on organic food cultivation.

SDG 3: Good Health & Well being

For every student and staff member, regular activities and motivation are provided to ensure healthy lives and promote well-being. Sports, yoga, meditation, and counselors are available to all.

SDG 4 : Quality Education

Providing accessible, quality education is one of our primary objectives. We achieve this through award-winning pedagogies, state-of-the-art technological aids, extensive resources, and a team of exceptional educators

SDG 11 : Sustainable Cities & Communities

With the majority of our schools located in major cities, we are committed to contributing to the goal of making urban environments inclusive, safe, and sustainable.
We achieve this by fostering resilience and imparting knowledge to our students and school communities.

SDG 12 : Responsible consumption & production

Whether it’s reducing waste in our schools or using resources judiciously, we ensure these practices are integrated into our daily operations. This approach allows our students to learn by actively engaging with these principles in practice.

SDG 13 : Climate action

We raise awareness amongst our school community to reduce our environmental footprint. We also actively contribute to this goal by minimising our schools’ impact on the environment.

SDG 15 : Life on land

We are dedicated to safeguarding, restoring, and promoting the sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems. In our schools, we actively teach and raise awareness about these principles, while also advocating for the planting of native and pollinator-friendly species to enhance biodiversity.
