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.
