Donating now is the best way to help us out. Your donations of all sizes keep us going. An 18,000 Rs (about $396 USD) donation supports a child at SUKRUPA for one year. If you want to inquire about sponsorship, please contact us.
Why partner with SUKRUPA:
SUKRUPA serves children and young adults from Indian slum communities. Typical Sukrupa students are first-generation learners, often born to young parents. It is not uncommon that the mothers of the youngest Sukrupa students are themselves only 12 or 13 years old. Family size is generally large, family members are often undernourished, and many live in poor hygienic and sanitary conditions. They are not trained in gainful skills, nor do they have access to schools or adult role models through which a livelihood would be taught.
Male members of these families are typically unskilled construction workers, with females employed in similar roles as well as serving as domestic help. It is not uncommon for parents to take their young children to work, thus ensuring that these children–absent Sukrupa–will themselves never gain access to education, and as a result will never develop as fully participative, contributing adults.
It is precisely this cycle of poverty that Sukrupa breaks. Instead of a child not being able to write his or her own name, read a sign board or open a bank account, Sukrupa creates young adults ready to lead the next generation through business and community participation.
