To achieve this goal, it  plans to open 30 sanskarshalas or informal education centres and expand its footprint to more states in addition to the current states of UP, Bihar and Odisha.

SUIT was established in the year 2010 with an objective of playing a constructive role in the upliftment of  society through basic education which is an effective catalyst for betterment of underprivileged families. Over the years, it has witnessed enormous success with 720 underprivileged children educated and empowered, 22 sanskarshalas initiated and 150 programmes conducted on education, health and hygiene. Some of the programmes conducted includes community mobilisation, learn while playing, intellectual test, sports equipment distribution, school uniform sponsorship, running evening centres, rural workshops on hygiene and many more among others.

SUIT operates through its network of implementing partners which many be NGO’s or schools and are selected through a rigorous screening process to ensure competency, capacity and compatibility of ideologies. Once the implementing partner has been selected, SUIT receives profiles of candidates and carefully scrutinises every profile to select eligible and deserving candidates. It provides financial assistance  and regular counseling which help the children in securing basic education. SUIT  conducts field surveys from time to time to understand the factors behind children not pursuing education and takes corrective action. Community mobilisation programmes are carried out to help parents understand the importance of education, spread awareness  and remove any stigmas in their mind. Timely  school visits  are also done to counsel and motivate students about the importance of education and ensure proper implementation of the program. Volunteers form the backbone of any social campaign and SUIT has grown its current volunteer base to over 800 plus.
