Summary

Provides High Standard Education, Nutritious Meals and Health Care for 350 children from the slums of Bangalore. Academics, Creativity and Values are the foundation of the Education program. Integrated curriculum at SUKRUPA is distinguished particularly by its emphasis on a balanced education of academics, creativity through various arts, technology, social values and right attitude.This helps to produces young adults who are globally aware, fiscally independent and personally responsible.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

SUKRUPA Serves below poverty line community, where most of the children are first generation learners born to young parents who do not have basic education nor skills and migrate from rural poverty in search of opportunities in cities and end up in slums that are unhygienic in addition to other disadvantages. This is the challenge that SUKRUPA addresses to make sure young girls and boys focus on education and go to college and become Independent & Responsible contributors of the society.

How will this project solve this problem?

SUKRUPA works with marginalized children and young adults, providing a secure environment, schooling and skills training that enable them to escape poverty, slum life, illiteracy, and ignorance. Sukrupa breaks the poverty cycle for these individuals and their families by creating opportunities so that they are able to integrate fully as participants and contributors in mainstream society.

Potential Long Term Impact

According to studies conducted by India's Education Ministry, education can drastically improve standards of living within a single generation. Manigendan was a first generation learner. His parents are daily wage laborers. After finishing school at SUKRUPA, we sponsored his Bachelor's in Commerce degree and today he is working as an accountant. With SUKRUPA's educational program, our students can get high paid jobs that uplift their standard of living by more than 5 times.
