Education

In India, even after completing four years of school, 90% of children from poorer households remain illiterate. And this also holds true for around 30% of kids from poorer homes despite five to six years of schooling. Education has many benefits to the individuals involved and to society at large. The health effects of education can be large and the education of women can significantly reduce child mortality rates. However, education charities are unlikely to be as cost effective as some other interventions.

Sanjeev Kumar Foundation is dedicated to provide education to children belonging to the slums in India with the help of civil servants, PhDs, social workers, educationists and many other educated personnel who are working for a common dream of developing the future of children of the country. With an aim to offer every child their fundamental right to education, we are slowly growing into a larger organisation covering different states of India. We typically aim to increase the time that children spend in education institutions and the quality of teaching that the poor children receive by building schools, tutoring outside the classroom, improving literacy, incentivizing attendance, and providing supplies and technology.

Healthcare

Indian Health care system is just a nominal health care system, there are not enough hospitals, doctors, medical staff, medicines or ambulance services available in the system. Quality of care and accessibility is very poor. Most people depend on private hospitals for health care except very poor people, who depend on government hospitals because they can't afford private out of pocket health care. This system can't be called a health care system from a Western perceptive

The mission of Sanjeev Kumar Foundation is to make a positive difference in the lives and health status of individuals in India. We educate our community, our providers and future health care professionals in order to offer the highest quality care especially those who are underserved and most vulnerable. We are committed to caring for patients 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, regardless of ability to pay. The aim to build Charity Care Programs to help the Health System meet the needs of our patients who are either uninsured or require assistance.

Culture

"Unity in diversity". It is not just another phrase or quotation. These words are highly prudent to a country like India that is incredibly rich in culture and heritage. Culture plays an important role in the development of any nation. It represents a set of shared attitudes, values, goals and practices. Culture and creativity manifest themselves in almost all economic, social and other activities. India has one of the world’s largest collections of songs, music, dance, theatre, folk traditions, performing arts, rites and rituals, paintings and writings.India is the world's largest producer of films, with as many as 1,000 films in various languages of India being produced annually. The Indian culture has never been rigid and that's why it's surviving with pride in the modern era. "Namaste", for an Indian it's a way common way of greeting outsiders and elders. Both palms placed together and raised below the face not only show the respect for others but it also makes you feel the affection in the greeting. It is for sure that no 'hello' or 'hi' can create that magic. Beauty of Indian women lies in the clothes she wears. Very traditional and ethnic yet contemporary Indian Saris are famous worldwide.Unique designs, artistic looks and creativity are always a part of Indian jewellery. Made up of gold and silver, the jewellery actually represents the culture and tradition of India Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Christian, Buddhist, Jain or Zoroastrian; one can find people of all religions here in India.

India is a secular state and every citizen enjoys an equal right of choosing and following a particular religion. The 'Land of Gods' never needs a particular reason to celebrate. Celebration is a fundamental part of every Indian's life. From January to December, every month comes with a particular fair or festival. Makar Sakranti, Basanti Panchami, Holi, Ram Navami, Janamashtami, Diwali, Eid, Mahavir Jayanti, Buddha Purnima, Guru Purv and Christmas; the festival of every religion has a significance and it is celebrated in a boisterous way. Despite so many diversities, people in India are united and they feel proud of their culture and tradition. On the world stage, either through international film festivals or through beauty pageants, India displays regularly its talent and culture. We at Sanjeev Kumar Foundation we believe that teaching Children about Indian culture from a very young age incorporates good values which help them be a better person because the values thought last lifetime. We encourage Traditional dressing and Food. Teach them to respect Indian Culture, talk to them about diverse Indian culture, the traditions and customs. We encourage them by doing any form of art like stage plays, taking part is dramas and dancing.

Environment

India, after 1950 till 2006 has witnessed a minor increase in the percentage of the land area under forest cover. In 1950 around 40.48 million hectare area was under forest cover. In 1980 it increased to 67.47 million hectare and in 2006 it was found to be 69 million hectare. Out of the total land available around 23% of land is under forest cover. The forests in India have been grouped into 5 major categories and 16 types according to biophysical criteria. The distribution of these groups indicates 38.20% subtropical dry deciduous, 30.30% tropical moist deciduous, 6.7% subtropical thorn and 5.8% tropical wet evergreen forests. Other categories include subtropical pine (5%), tropical semi-evergreen forests (2.5%) and other smaller categories. Temperate and alpine areas cover about 10% of the forest areas. It is taken care that only local species are planted in an area. Trees bearing fruits are of higher choice in any geography.

Sanjeev Kumar Foundation works on spreading awareness of environmental issues and trying to find solutions for them .The aim is to create environmental awareness in the communities. Our future plans would include conducting afforestation programs and widespread environmental education and training programmes through a very vast network. We are also looking forward to taking up projects related to conservation of biodiversity and eco-development.

Nutrition

The persistence of undernutrition in the face of India’s impressive economic growth is of enormous concern. Not only are the absolute numbers so high, but the prevalence of young child stunting, underweight and wasting – and the fact it has changed so little through the last two decades -- continue to shock. Although it is now clear that direct interventions to reduce child undernutrition must be delivered at scale to achieve rapid reductions in undernutrition.In India, less than 55% of mothers and children receive any of the essential health and nutrition interventions they should.

We aim to reduce the prevalence of severe malnutrition in poorer sectors of India. We are working towards reducing the death of the children due to severe protein energy malnutrition. Our future nutrition programs will include preparing the Mid Day Meal in our center, which is a nutritious and sumptuous food. These meals will be packed and sealed in specially designed stainless steel containers and transported in dedicated vehicles to the respective areas(villages) where they will be served to children and poor adults.
