At GEMS our priority is ‘education first’
GEMS Education offers a variety of payment options for parents to help alleviate financial burdens, including a GEMS CARES programme which is set up to assist families that may require more payment flexibility.
The aim of GEMS CARES is to provide limited subsidized education assistance to those suffering extreme hardship at the time they need it most.
The expectation is that when such people get back on their feet, such assistance will diminish or cease, and, where possible, those who received assistance will pay it back to make additional funds available for others who deserve similar help in future.
Parents who require assistance are encouraged to speak to the Principal of their child's school in the first instance to determine their eligibility. They may also be required to provide relevant documentation before being approved in the scheme.
