Sankalp worked in three small village schools located five hours drive time north of Delhi. In 2011 the success of this project serving lower socio-economic children's needs resulted in all of the children being mainstreamed into regular schools in the area. IASE Volunteers and GIVING Funds helped to provide supplies and support to make this happen. Starting in 2012, Sankalp began working on sanitation projects, wherein it provides girls' toilets and safe drinking water to poor schools so that the girls remain in school. The organization also provides school supplies to special education students.
