About Sukrupa

Since 2002, SUKRUPA has committed to empowering first-generation learners, the children of migrant daily workers at the grassroots level. Our primary focus is on educating girls and boys who are vulnerable to child marriage and child labour so they can pull themselves and their families out of the cycle of poverty. Right from early childhood to college, we foster creative learning through a comprehensive approach that includes scholarships, mentoring, and training in life skills, technology, sustainability, and professional skills.

The team comprises passionate individuals committed to making a difference in the lives of youngsters who lack the means for quality education and a better future. The mission is to enable every child with a good education, nurture them with life skill and creative skills, bridge the gap between schooling and college, and empower women socially and economically. The vision is to empower first-generation learners economically and culturally so they contribute to global peace. SUKRUPA’s core strength lies in reimagining education for over two decades among vulnerable

communities, creating opportunities for first-generation learners from migrant daily wage workers. The child-centric learning approach, SuVidya, is designed to help students evolve into successful adults.

Growing up in a small-scale industrial neighborhood, Krupa and her family helped hundreds of children complete schooling. In the year 2000, out of passion, Krupa funded her mother to set up the weekend program for underprivileged children in R.T. Nagar, Bangalore. That eventually led her to end her lucrative career in the USA to set up Sukrupa along with her mother Suguna, while vacationing during the summer of 2002.

Krupa is fully committed to Sukrupa although she shares her time between Bangalore and Bay Area. In her spare time, she enjoys traveling with her husband, cooking gourmet food, nurturing an organic garden and watching movies. In Bangalore, she also loves to spend time with the eight children that Krupa and her brother Sathya have been fostering for the last 14 years.

Krupa was one of the top 25 Lead India Nominees of the Times of India Initiative in 2007. In 2016, she was recognized with Abhi~Nandana SHRAMA SADANA Shining Star award by ISBR, Public Relations Council of India, Chambers Academy and industry celebrating the success of women achievers.
