 Founder I Executive Director Speak: 

The summer was filled with exciting programs with which we were able to enrich the children with values, life skills and creativity. Ahead of the school reopening our teachers were facilitated with training sessions to enhance their teaching methodologies and skills. We are immensely proud to share that the percentage of children getting into college has drastically increased this year. With continuous nurturing and support more and more children have been able to complete high school and get into college.
This year we look forward to scaling all our interventions, building innovative teaching methods and strengthening our team to create greater impact trough new programs and initiatives.

School Drop Outs to Graduates

We are immensely proud to share that this year we have got 99% SSLC 10th board results. It's been a successful journey that we cherish every year. As the children complete high school and move to college it's a proud moment for the child, their families and the community they come from. With the skills, nurturing and values that they learn at SUKRUPA, the children have been able to get into prestigious institutions in the city such as Christ University, St. Joseph's, Mount Carmel, Sheshadripuram and Sindhi college to pursue their higher studies. From school drop outs to first generation graduates we have been able to see the transformation and change through the years. We hope that many more children are able to make through that transformation, become responsible citizens and create a better future.

Back to school after the vacations

The school reopening was lit with bright faces, smiles and happiness. The children were back after a short vacation all excited to begin school. Ahead of the school reopening the school building was given a fresh coat with paints and decorations. Like every academic year we pledge to impart the best of Education and continue to empower young minds with all our initiatives.

Initiatives of SUKALP - SUKRUPA After School Life Skill Leadership Program

Creating Yourself!! Nurturing with Life Skills

Along with academics and creativity we focus on nurturing the children with life skills which becomes the foundation for teenagers. A five day workshop was conducted for the students of 10th Grade to identify their personality traits and encourage themselves to become self-aware to channelize their further steps. Through the program the children were able to realize their individual strengths, understand differences, and find solutions and to use their strengths in the right way. Team building activities were conducted for them to help them come up with strategies, be responsible, be open to learn and be creative.

 

SUKRUPA Summer Camp 2018

This summer camp theme focused on values that the children have to grow up with in order to lead a good life. Along with continuous mentoring we also engaged the children with Indoor games, vocabulary skills, gardening, scrap book making, creative collage and much more throughout the summer camp. We thank all the college students from SUMARGADHARSHAK and volunteers for making this summer camp an exciting one.

Values - The foundations of life!!

The growth process of a tree is as we grow from children to adolescents to young adults and like a tree, the strength and quality of life is largely dependent on the strength and quality of the roots - the values we learn as children.

The children were able to imbibe the values such as being honest, working hard, staying humble, having gratitude, giving back to the community and many more so that these values become the roots of a healthy life.

Nurturing young minds!!

As SUKRUPA’s focus had been enriching the lives of children with life skills, a six day intense life skill workshop was conducted the students of high school. Self-awareness, management of emotions, choices and consequences, problem solving, pushing their limits and goals, setting goals and presentation were some of the skills that the children were nurtured. Team building activities and tasks helped the children to make decisions, be self-aware, create positives and solve problems. Through the life skills program they were able to innovate, understand their strengths and set goals which are measurable, attainable, relatable and time bound. All these skills would support them to focus on their education and grow to become responsible and accountable for their actions.

 

SUMARGADHARSHAK Scholarship Program

SUMARGADHARSHAK is a scholarship and mentoring program for college students - one of SUKRUPA’s major intervention.

The elections were conducted by the students with the assistance of the teachers. The elected school captains took oath to be honest, humble and contribute to the welfare of the school.

PHOTO AND VIDEO JOURNALISM

The Photo-Video Journalism program supported by Fidelity National Financial India has been a successful one.  The children have been able to learn the complete process of making a video. Right from pre-production of research, creating the story board, then the production which involves the handling the camera, shooting, voice over and finally the post production of editing the video. Through the process of making the video the children were able to understand the importance of planning, team work and co-operation. The students worked in two groups and were able to create stories on socially relevant topics. One was on water conservation and the other one was on recycling. We look forward to enriching the children’s ideas and creativity through this program.
