Sukarya works to save lives of mother and children, empower women, empower villages, and educate slum children in Delhi, Rajasthan and Haryana.
Work and Achievements
In India, 51% of all women of reproductive age have anaemia according to Global Nutrition Report 2017. 38% of children under-5 are affected by stunting and 21% of under-5s are defined as ‘wasted’ or ‘severely wasted’, meaning they are underweight.
Sukarya is one of the very few non-profit organizations in India engaged in providing access to basic health care and nutrition to hundreds of thousands of women and children living in slums of the National Capital Region of Delhi and Haryana and Rajasthan since 1998.
