The programs offered currently through Sukrupa include: Free Schooling, from Pre-school through Class 10 Youth Training in life skills, distant learning and college education Community and Rural Economic Development benefiting adults and families
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.
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.
According to studies conducted by India's Education Ministry, education can drastically improve standards of living within a single generation. Manigendan was a first generation learner. His parents are daily wage laborers. After finishing school at SUKRUPA, we sponsored his Bachelor's in Commerce degree and today he is working as an accountant. With SUKRUPA's educational program, our students can get high paid jobs that uplift their standard of living by more than 5 times.
