Road to success......

SPPD has been involved in a number of interventions towards empowering rural children especially through education.

The SPPD takes special care on the students, who are not able to continue their studies after completing grade 10th std 12th. Such discontinuance of education is caused by poverty coupled with illiteracy and the widespread addiction to alcohol prevailing the region.

The above educational qualifications do not help the rural youth here to look for jobs other than the highly unpredictable traditional local agriculture based work. Hence SPPD strives to help those poor rural youth by with training in skill oriented works and education. The obstacles that stand in the way of their securing such vocational skill training are greatly minimized by our interventions. By offering mid day meal, bearing travel expense from their homes to the institutions, uniforms and other study materials SPPD has been able to help the rural students to get equipped in various vocational skills.

Only with the support of Global Giving SPPD could carry out the same. We thank all the individual donors on through this communication for their generous donations towards this cause.
