    SEATTLE, WA, January 11, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Sukarya announced today that they have graduated from the GlobalGiving Accelerator program, gaining entry into the GlobalGiving marketplace and becoming a recognized partner of GlobalGiving. As part of the Accelerator, Sukarya successfully raised $11,150 from 82 unique individual donors to support their project, "Educating 240 Children in 6 Slums in Delhi."

"We're thrilled to have Sukarya as part of our community. Sukarya has met our rigorous vetting standards for trust and community support, and we're committed to providing tools, training, and support as they learn, grow and become more effective," said Mari Kuraishi, President and Co-Founder of GlobalGiving. "GlobalGiving donors value the opportunity to support nonprofits like Sukarya, knowing that they'll get regular updates about how their donations are put to work."

"Education on wheels [EOW] is a uniquely designed program which prepares slum children for formal education by taking the school to them. EOW is a well equipped bus with computers, TV and other essential education related materials. The idea is to motivate slum kids & their parents by providing good facilities (AC Bus, Good teachers), innovative curriculum to bring kids up to 3rd grade school level in one year. Preparing them for 3rd grade examination & enroll them into local 4th grade school," said Meera Satpathy, the founder and chairperson of Sukarya.
