A Public Institution with Democratic Governance
GMSS is a non-government, non-political, non-profit and non-religious organization exclusively dedicated to the cause of educating rural women in the region. Public participation is the backbone of the Society. It works on the golden principle ‘of the people, by the people and for the people.’ This has made the Society a ‘unique’ organization in the region.

Life members, patrons and donors constitute the Society. All powers are vested in the hands of the members, the General Body. The general body elects a 21 member Working Committee each year to look after the activities of the Society. The president of the Working Committee is the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Society.
