Vision, Mission & Values
“Helping deprived indian children realizing their full potential through education”.
“Reaching to maximum number of deprived children through sankalp centres and bringing about sustainable changes in their lives through education”.
- Imparting quality education to most disadvantaged, victimized and marginalized children by unique educational interventions primarily to include support for infrastructure such as classrooms, providing learning aids, promoting socially meaningful curriculum development and child-centered joyful learning techniques.
- To support and cooperate with persons and groups including those already engaged in similar activities.
- To raise the required human and other resources to achieve SANKALP’s mission.
- To address, whenever possible, other issues affecting human life such as health care, environment, socio-economic aspects and women’s issues.
SANKALP runs on certain core values. Our core values are:
- SPIRIT OF VOLUNTEERISM: A SANKALP volunteer is an unpaid volunteer and participates in the spirit of pure volunteerism. Our volunteer’s lives are enriched by being of service to others.
- NON-DISCRIMINATORY: SANKALP does not discriminate in its selection of philanthropic project activity, on the basis of gender, race, color, religion, age, disability, gender orientation, lifestyle etc.
- SECULAR, NON-POLITICAL AND NON-RELIGIOUS: We support only secular community initiatives, projects or people. This means that we will not support initiatives or projects that are solely for the benefit of one religious community barring others. We support only non-political community initiatives, projects or people. This means that we will not support a particular political party or ideology.
- NO PERSONAL BENEFIT: We keep an ethical firewall in our operations. Every project which SANKALP supports is not and should not be dependent on any personal benefit for that or any SANKALP volunteer.
SANKALP believes that the future of any individual, people, country or indeed the world lies in education. Despite the universalization of primary education being adopted as a key thrust area, the vast majority of children remain uneducated. The government and several NGOs are working towards this aim. Several schools have been set up towards this end. However, there is a high percentage of poor education in the lower socio-economic strata in the nation. This can be attributed to several factors including poor quality of teaching and lack of support at home due to the children being first generation learners. Parents often pay for tuition that they can ill afford. Thus, SANKALP predominantly addresses this issue.
Given the right resources, every child can grow out of the unfortunate backgrounds. Education, thus, becomes an important part of a child’s life and growth, making them efficient and capable of leading a better life and giving back to their country. Without the route to education, a child cannot develop the necessary skills to sustain and grow into a responsible human being.
