Helping economically and socially disadvantaged children realize their full potential through education.
The origins of Sankalp EK Prayas' existence can be traced backed to 2010. In their quest to build a social service NGO, the founders of SANKALP visited orphanages, old age homes, and centres for differently abled persons in and around Durg, Bhilai, Raipur region and mobilized resources for disadvantaged sections of society. Eventually they decided on making children the centerpiece of their project as they determined that many issues that needed to be addressed such as poverty, lack of healthcare, unemployment etc that plagued human development in Chhatisgarh were tied to access to education for children. “SANKALP EK PRAYAS SOCIETY” came into existence as an organization by registering under CG Society Registration Adhiniyam on 15.03.2011. The name of the organization, SANKALP, is rooted in the commitment that brought many individuals together in the hope that they would be able to make a difference in lives of disadvantaged children through their work and efforts.
