In February 2016 Hasnain Dewji, Fatemah Dewji, Atifahuda Dewji and Fauzia Kara went on a scouting trip to India. They visited over 17 schools throughout India. Based on this scouting trip plans were made for our first mission to Bhavnagar as well as a long term plan for India.
GKF has hired a full time dentist in India that will be working out of a permanent clinic based in the Unity College in Lucknow India. The school has 5000 plus students plus another 2000 students in rural schools. By hiring a local dentist and training them to a higher level of care the hope is that we can raise the level of dental awareness and also identify and provide treatment those those individuals that need specialized care. The long term plan is to send a Pediatric dental specialists to the school on a regular basis to treat specialty cases and follow up on the quality of care being provided. The budget for this project is approx. $25,000 dollars US per year to hire a dentist and an assistant and provide all necessary supplies.
