About SKS Foundation
SKS Foundation (Swayam Krishi Sangam Foundation) has vision of
poverty free world. It is the global face of SKS cluster organizations including
SKS Micro Finance Ltd., that have defining presence in India and SKS Foundation
contributes significantly to making this vision a global reality. It has also
ambition to reach much more global poor synergizing commitment of individuals
and institutions across the globe.
Founded in 2001 as a non-profit registered
under 501(c)(3) of the United States, Foundation focuses on building awareness
levels in the Global Community about its ongoing Ultra Poverty Practices and
Community Development through its sister Organizations in India.
India has made quantum leap becoming an economic superpower but pickup in growth
has not translated into commensurate decline in its poverty. It has critical
challenges in graduating its bottom poor (who live below 1US$ a day income) to
sustainable livelihoods and quality life.
SKS Foundation works along with the rural and tribal ultra poor to create
catalytic equity through initiatives in Health, Ultra Poverty and Education,
connecting commitment of individuals and institutions across the Globe.
In this endeavor SKS Foundation works to support Swayam Krishi Sangam and Bodhi
Educational Society, its non-profit sister organizations in Andhra Pradesh,
India, by raising funds, elevating awareness, technical collaborations and
exploring innovative ways to expand development projects in healthcare, social
development, ultra poverty and education.
