What We Do
At Sankalp we try improve quality of life of every child and women through Food, Health and Education.
Our major focus areas are,1: Children
Despite the numerous promises and provisions made by the government, the state of many of India’s children continues to be pitiable. Statistics reveal that there are close to 17 million child laborers, about 3 to 5 lakh children are forcibly engaged in prostitution and at least 18 million children live on the streets in India. Do your part – donate to a child charity; and help bring these numbers down.2: Health & Sanitation
With a mere 6.1% of India GDP being spent on health care, the scenario, not surprisingly, is not a very pleasing one. Data shows that every second child in the country suffers from malnutrition that over 1,000 people succumb to Tuberculosis every day, that almost 60,000 children are born with HIV each year! Basic health care and health assurance seem to be a distant dream for most of the population.3: Women
For a country whose population of women alone is more than the total population of many other countries, we fare pretty low where their treatment is concerned. The number of sexual abuse and domestic violence cases against women and the number of issues against a women's health in India clearly throws light on the fact that women in India do not enjoy even basic rights. Given such a scenario, it becomes clear that women charities have an important role to play. It is our responsibility to uplift the plight of the women in this country Lend your support to NGOs working in the women cause and make donations to women's health, welfare and family services.4: Education
Government reports indicate that 59 million children between 6-14 years do not attend school. Official information further indicates that just a little over one-third of all children who enroll in grade one reach grade eight. And this in a country which has made education for children in the age group 6-14 years a fundamental right? Donate online for the education of poor children in India. Education charities can potentially play a vital role in the country’s development as educated children are the key to a bright future. Your help will go a long way in providing educational opportunities for children who would otherwise be left behind.
