Work With Us
Most of India’s under privileged children and youth do not get an opportunity to pick up basic digital and linguistic skills required to succeed in today's world. And we are trying to change that. If you feel you would like to be a part of this change and work towards reducing this disparity, do come and work with us.SEAL Program Empower Youth
Partner With Us
We do not actively seek financial support, but if you like any of our programs and would like to be a partner and not just a donor, then do reach out to us. We would be delighted to hear from you
The LTI (Larsen and Toubro Infotech) - Sujaya Foundation partnership begins in 2013. At the time the partnership involves employee volunteers coming to teach and mentor students at the Sujaya Foundation Centres.
In 2015-2016, the partnership extends to CSR funding of the 'I learn I earn' project in Vashi:
- Training differently-abled youth in Digital Literacy
- Paid internship in real-time projects
- Placement of beneficiaries in corporate organisations.
LTI is a very supporting partner. Apart from funding, their employees have also partnered with us to take skill-building to the next level. The LTI-CSR division executives are involved from planning, budgeting right through to execution.
Thank you LTI for endorsing our work and extending support - financial and otherwise, every year, thereby helping us reach more and more beneficiaries.
Sujaya ShettyProgram Director, Empower Youth
Sujaya Foundation and the Global Fund for Children share common values when it comes to strengthening India’s social sector and empowering children to be active, educated and informed citizens of the world. The Global Fund for Children finds and supports small, locally led organizations that transform the lives of the world’s most vulnerable children, and Sujaya Foundation has been an invaluable grassroots partner for us since 2008. Sujaya Foundation’s approach to social change – bridging the digital and linguistic divide through education and employment for children and youth – creates lasting impact by cultivating a new generation of leaders from socio-economically disadvantaged communities. We are proud to partner with Sujaya Foundation in its vital mission.
