India is a country that has seen high dropout rates and the pandemic in the last two years has only made things worse. The subsequent lockdowns in the country brought to the fore how the digital divide can be one of the biggest challenges of these times.
Millions of children especially from the underprivileged sections of society have been deprived of education during the pandemic and even before. Established in January 2010, SANKALP works to ameliorate poverty and help children from the lower rungs of our society get an education. SANKALP concentrates on providing free tuition facilities to 10,000+ unprivileged children so that they gain the power of knowledge and strength of education with the passage of time. Presently SANKALP runs schooling education through its 200 centers.
Education alone is the power that can redeem the poor from their poverty – not only in terms of earning a livelihood but also becoming aware of the rights and freedoms that a citizen is endowed with, thus SANKALP believes empowering them through education makes them independent.
