I'm Chandana
I'm Chandana

Chandana is a student of 10th Grade. She started her schooling at SUKRUPA from Kindergarten in 2005. She is a single parented child. Her mother Sarah is a domestic help. She has a younger sister who is studying in 6th Grade at SUKRUPA. She is one of the most active and enthusiastic students in her class. Here is how Chandana is doing at school...

“School is the most fun place to be. I learn theatre, dance, music, life skills and how I as a girl can be more independent and live with good values. My friends make a lot of jokes, every day is so much fun with them. There are lots of volunteers from different countries who come to the school, interacting with them teaches me a lot of things. I want to become a musician when I grow up.

Last few months at school has been very exciting. I have had so much fun. We had the Student Council Elections at school. I contested for the 'Head Girl' post. It was a good experiene submitting the nomination and doing the canvasing. On Independence day I was part of the school band. We marched through the streets near my school.

Parichaya is the best thing about school. I enjoyed it so much. It is a day when we showcase all that we have learnt in creative ways. I was part of the Art group where we did an art exibition to share all the work that we had done in the last few months. There were volunteers, parents and people from around the school who came to see our stall. 

We celebrated teachers day at school. I love my teachers, they make me happy everyday. On the day when we celebrated teachers day, my class made greeting cards and we gave it to our teachers. 

I'm so excited about how my next few months in school is going to be becuase this is my last year at school. I want to enjoy all that I can. SUKRUPA is a home to me, coming to school makes me soooo happy. Many girls do not get the opportunities that I get.

Music makes me happy. I listen to Justin Beiber, Selena Gomez, Charlie Puth and many more. My mother is my best friend and I love her so much.

Thank you all for helping me to enjoy school everyday".

What better way to spend the summer

The SUKRUPA summer camp 2019 was filled with fun learning with an objective for children to get stimulated and develop interests. The camp was conducted by the SUKRUPA SuMargadarshak students who were a team of five members. The camp was a week long program filled with sports, group discussion, indoor games and movie screening.

“This camp was fun, informative and we really enjoyed a lot. We had many sessions about life skills, where I learnt about problem solving and how important it is to look around our surrounding and figure out solutions for the different social issues”. – Reeta from 7th Grade

“I had a great time getting to watch educational films. I learnt so much from, it was different because I got a visual experience of what I was learning. Every day there was something new and I learnt a lot from it”. – Sindhu from 9th Grade

First generation learners stepping into college

We are excited to share that our class students passed out with flying colors. Most of the students are first generation learners and we are immensely proud to share that all of them have got admissions in prestigious institutions like Christ Junior College, Mount Carmel’s, St. Anne’s c and Sheshadripuram College. Through the support and guidance of SUKRUPA, the children are pursuing their studies in different courses.

“On the first day of college, everything was new for me. It was different from school, there were so many students from different places. At first I was nervous but later I started speaking to everyone. It’s going to be a new experience and I want use every little opportunity I get” – Anushree I Mount Carmel College

“It’s almost a week in college now. I have made many new friends and the teachers are so sweet. My favorite subject is Psychology, it is very interesting and new for me” – Anna Marie I Mount Carmel PU College

Getting our teachers ready for the academic year 2019

Ahead of the school reopening, we had the teacher’s induction program to enhance their abilities and skills to create a hands on learning experience for the children. Twenty teachers were part of the induction which was a week long program conducted by our Executive Director Ms. Krupalatha Martin Dass, Director Mr. Sathiaseelan and Director Operations Mr. Murugan. The focus was on lesson planning, activity based learning and understanding the policies of SUKRUPA Education Centre and child protection.

Back to school after summer vacations

The children were back to school on the 27th of May 2019, all excited for a whole new year filled with learning and fun. The first week of school, we conducted bridge courses for all the children where the basic knowledge of each subject was taught to them. Through this we were able to understand each child’s level of knowledge and this helped them to better themselves in each subject.

We are so inspired by the generosity of our donors and volunteers and the dedication of our management and teachers. Your contributions help create better futures

“My name is Achal Sharma. I’m studying in 9th grade at SUKRUPA. I love doing art a lot and at SUKRUPA I enjoy being a part of the after school program where I get to learn a lot of things. In the month of December I went to the biggest Art Mela ‘Chitra Santhe’ in Bangalore. It was so beautiful and it was a memorable experience. There were so many different kinds of art which were so colorful and of different themes. I couldn’t stop looking at them again and again.

In my school they conduct lots of events. In the last two months I have had so much fun being a part of celebrations, creativity and fun activities. On January 14th we celebrated Pongal which is a harvest festival of Tamil Nadu and parts of Karnataka. At school we sang songs and performed a skit. All the classes took active participation. I enjoyed the skit because it was very funny and I was part of it and I loved it.

On the 25th of January we had visitors from Indigo. I enjoyed taking them around to introduce them to all the classes and had a good time getting to know them better. I was so excited to be a part of the ‘Colorothon’ event in Jayanagar Bangalore on the 26ht of January where we all drew our imagination. There were many guests who were a part of it and people from all ages were also there. I was happy sitting in an open space and drawing.

The most awaited event of the year was ‘Open Day’. It took place from the 31st of January to 2nd of February. We displayed our knowledge and creativity that we had learnt throughout the year to parents and visitors. It was so much fun helping the teachers, working in a group and putting things together for Open Day. I was part of the Art Group where I loved selling my paintings and raising funds for my school.

I’m also a part of the Bangalore School of Music Children's Choir where I get to learn western music. I was part of the concert at Allaince Francais where we performed a Swedish song. I loved performing on the stage and I thank my teacher Ms. Deborah ma’am and Sten Sir for teaching us the song so well. Have a look at one of my recent art work.

Thank you all for your love and support".

Celebrating 72 years of Independence

It was a day filled with love, happiness and joy. The children dressed in bright white uniforms marched through the neighborhood attracting people from far and near. As they marched with the sounds of drums, snares and cymbals people came out of their homes to grace the procession. Parents, teachers, friends, siblings and dear ones took pride in coming together to celebrate this great day and making it a memorable one.

We thank all our supporters for their love and encouragement.

Gandhi Jayanti Celebration

Every year on October 2, India celebrates the birth of its iconic leader Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. He has been given the title of ‘Father of the Nation’ for his relentless hard work that helped India attain freedom. By remembering him on this day, celebrated as Gandhi Jayanti, we pay tribute to this great leader. An awareness program was conducted for the children with skit and speeches organized in the school performed by the children.

Dussehra Festival celebration

The Hindu festival of Dussehra, Navratri and Vijayadashami celebrates the victory of good over evil celebrated across the country. In Karnataka it is a big festival celebrated for 10 days across cities of Bengaluru and Mysuru.

Children’s Day celebration

Children's Day is celebrated on the 14th of November in India as a tribute to Jawaharlal Nehru, who was born on November 14, 1889. Jawaharlal Nehru, who was fondly called Chachaji, was known for his love for children. At SUKRUPA it’s a day all children await. The teachers made the day special for the children with fun activities, games and gifts. The teachers made special greeting cards for the kids and chocolates were distributed among children and celebrate.

Back to School after the vacations
Back to School after the vacations

 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.

Kunskapskolan visits SUKRUPA

It was a pleasure to have Mr. Fedrix and family from Kunskapskolan visiting us. They had a wonderful time with us and our children were eager to know about their school, culture and their lifestyle. Curiosity and exciting was filled all over their faces. It was indeed a privilege to have them with us.

Recognizing International Yoga Day

The International Yoga day was recognized on the 21st of June. Students were ignited with the importance of yoga and its practices. The children were taught a number of breathing exercises and asanas.

 Teacher’s become learning Facilitators

We had the privilege of having Mr. Arul Prabhakar from Christ University working along with our teachers on lesson planning and innovative teaching methodologies. The teachers were involved in understanding, observing and creating creative learning ideas. Teachers should be facilitators in assisting children to grasp knowledge and lead them towards achieving their goals.

Enabling leadership – Student Council Elections 2018

It was the second student council elections at SUKRUPA. Students from different classes began canvasing for the various posts in the student’s council. There was great excitement and enthusiasm among the teachers and students throughout the elections.

The students experienced the complete process of an election right from the announcement of elections, submission of nomination, announcement of candidates, canvasing, casting of votes, counting of votes and the elections results. It was indeed a great learning for children to experience fair democracy at school. The nominated members took oath and committed towards contributing to the welfare of the school.

Ready for School

At SUKRUPA we ensure that children receive new uniforms, shoes, notebooks and stationaries every year. This enable the children coming from underprivileged to be happy and excited to be ready for school. Children from preschool to tenth grade received their uniforms and books along with their parents. We thank all our supporters for their contribution and support.

Foundation Day with Bank of Baroda

SUKRUPA thanks Bank of Baroda for their contribution towards stationaries for the children from preschool to tenth grade on the occasion of Foundation Day 2018.

The story of Sundarapoo who dreams to be a teacher

Sundarapoo completed her high school at SUKRUPA and went to Mount Carmel College. She completed her 12th grade and is now pursuing her graduation. She has three siblings and her father being bed ridden for months, her mother is the only bread winner of the family. Even among these odds Sundarapoo is able to have a better life.

"It has been two weeks in college and I feel so happy and proud to be able to go to such a prestigious institution. I feel I’m lucky joining Mount Carmel College. I have made new friends and interacting with them is a new experience. I get to know about their stories, culture and their lifestyle. I’m studying History, Economics and Sociology. The teachers are very friendly and co-operative. My economics teacher smiles at me when she takes the attendance and whenever I see her in the campus I greet her with a smile. I’m part of the National Social Service club where I can explore more about my subjects. I want to be a teacher someday and make my mother happy"
