Challenge

Most of the children at SUKRUPA are first-generation students born to young parents who are unskilled laborers who migrate from rural poverty to cities in search of livelihood and settle in slums. As they struggle for basic survival, education is not a priority. Even if children are sent to school, it is very likely that a majority of them will drop out when they are teenagers. This results in girls becoming young mothers at the age of 13 or 14 and boys a burden on a family's meager income

Solution

SUKRUPA's mission is to provide free and subsidized quality education, life skills, college scholarships, mentoring, skills development underprivileged children & young adults giving them the resources to create stable, sustainable futures so they emerge as conscious individuals who enhance their personal lives and lives of others. The balanced curriculum, mentoring by committed, passionate teachers helps them to dream big, focus on education and prepare them to become college graduates.

Long-Term Impact

According to studies conducted by India's Education Ministry, education can drastically improve standards of living within a single generation. Tens of thousands of students would become university graduates, choose careers they enjoy and secure dignified jobs that are high paying and would create an opportunity to move into the mainstream society. Good Quality Education will free them from poverty, slum life and improve quality of their life multi folds making them positive contributors.
