Milestones

From the Pilot Project that started with a meagre 6 children across one center,
today SunaayyFoundation takes care of more than 450 students on board 
  • The last few years saw us opening multiple centers in New Delhi, Kolkata and Bihar, together with more than double the number of teachers and staff.
  • On an average, every year, we have been instrumental in enrolling thirty children into regular public schools and have been monitoring their attendance and progress.
  • Till date, over 100,000 meals have been served; over 1000 blankets and 1,500 uniforms have been distributed along with the regular lessons being imparted to the children.

Sunaayy takes off as an initiative in -

  • Filling the gap between what the law aspires and what the ground reality is.
  • Physically going to Urban Slums and JJ Clusters thus engaging with the Community residing in that location.
  • Talking to people, disseminating information about the importance of sending children to school, also making them aware of their Child’s Right to Free and Compulsory Education.

Our Impactful Stories

Zayed

Again, many like Zayed, can’t concentrate on what’s being taught to them. And why? His family can’t afford to feed him breakfast before school.  We feel privileged to be able to offer food and basic nutrients needed for any child to function properly on any given day.

Tauseef

Tauseef is a unique example of a child who gets bullied and ridiculed because of a condition (Ichthyosis, a skin disease where dry and dead skin cells accumulate on the body instead of being shed, creating a snakeskin-like appearance) that he can’t to much about. The trauma of this was such that he almost cocooned himself. Since our intervention, Tauseef has been able to get the schooling that he needed. Currently, he has enrolled in a Public/Government Boys’ Senior Secondary School and aspires to be a doctor.

The Heart Of Sunaayy

We at Sunaayy, owe much of our success to the dedicated teachers caring for children every day.
Farida has been with us since our inception. Initially, she thought of getting her daughter enrolled in Sunaayy. We got her enrolled too as she wanted to learn, subjects that she couldn’t pursue as a child herself.
Teachers like Farida have been instrumental in helping the students at Sunaayy grow through meticulously planned activity-based exercises.
