Who We Are

Education is the only key for sustainable socio-economic progress. As per the 2011 census the literacy rate of our country is 74.04%. The figures look good but it is sadly a lot lesser than the average world literacy rate of 84%, where India being the nation with the largest illiterate population amongst all. Despite Government Programs, India's literacy rate has increased very "sluggishly" and a 1990 study vaguely estimated that it would take until 2060 for India to achieve universal literacy at the then-current rate of progress. The following paragraph is a brief illustration of some basic statistics.

A staggering eight million children are still out of school today. Millions of children do not receive quality learning in classrooms. Out of every 1000 Children 82 are made to do hazardous jobs due to bone wrenching poverty. 25.96 % of our population cannot read and write. 70% of children drop out before class 10th.

The literacy rate in rural areas is 68.9% while that in urban areas is 85 %. Students in villages do not receive any guidance when it comes to effective utilization of their academic knowledge and other skills. They don’t know about the existence of good institutes in our country. We must equip the youth to be informed about what they can possibly avail to secure a decent life for themselves in the long run.

Hence, the question that looms large is that who will take the responsibility to ensure that the gap between the good students in a rural, semi-urban school and a possibly well deserving admission to one of the decent colleges out there is bridged?

What if you wouldn’t been to higher studies?

Things would have been completely different without higher education for all of us. Many organisations in our country are working on primary education and doing wonderful work but most of them are not tracking what the student is exactly achieving in his higher education. As per MHRD survey of higher education only 19.4% youth are reaching to graduation. There are millions of talented youth who are living in darkness without the awareness about career options, without knowing about IITs,IIMs. We decided to work on this ...to give a ray of hope, to support and guide students from rural India to their dream career.

One of the Sanskriti initiative, Sanskriti career guidance fellowship program, aims at providing the proper career guidance in detail to students.. This initiative is to make the difference, try and improve the lives of those who need our help in every possible way.

We are committed to help to the deserving people in all aspects. We work in the areas of Education, Health awareness and community development at grass root levels.

Sanskriti Founder / Sanskriti Team:

Jitender Rohilla
Once a man was walking along a beach. The sun was shining and it was a beautiful day. Off in the distance he could see a person going back and forth between the surf's edge and the beach. Back and forth this person went. As the man approached, he could see that there were hundreds of starfish stranded on the sand as the result of the natural action of the tide. The man was stuck by the the apparent futility of the task. There were far too many starfish. Many of them were sure to perish. As he approached, the person continued the task of picking up starfish one by one and throwing them into the surf. As he came up to the person, he said: "You must be crazy. There are thousands of miles of beach covered with starfish. You can't possibly make a difference." The person looked at the man. He then stooped down and pick up one more starfish and threw it back into the ocean. He turned back to the man and said: "It surely made a difference to that one!"
