Training Cost: 

The cost per student per month for Class Room Training, Field Training, Literature, Food and Accommodation is around 1700 INR (38 USD). Since most of the students are economically backward, they are unable to afford the course fee and other expenses. As it is residential training, many of the students support their family members financially during their course period also. So GEMS offers this program almost free of cost.
