Sukarya’s Founder, Meera Satpathy has had a long relationship with communities that have struggled to make ends meet. Not having enough money has meant lack of education, poor access to health care, increased chance of domestic abuse, poor family planning, soaring mountain of debt, sub-optimal level of hygiene and sanitation and an unequal environment for adolescent girls. Through its various projects Sukarya has tried to work with communities to prioritise their needs so that the unfair and unfortunate curse of poverty can be alleviated to the extent possible. A committed team and a range of donors has helped sustain programmes and expand outreach.
