Education

Education is that factor which decides the future of our nation. But being a country with a huge population which mostly lives below the poverty line; there are hundreds of them who have dropped out of school due to social and financial problems. Getting to eat a day’s meal is their aim, whereas using computer is a farfetched dream for them. Supertron Foundation has worked to make their dream come true. Our objective is to bring back those children to school and encourage them to build a better future. So, we have installed computers, projectors, speakers as a mode to make classrooms more colorful and interesting place. Supertron Foundation has derived the idea of Computer Empowerment Centre in and around different schools in Kolkata. These children are often shown motivational videos and inspiring movies with aim to stir their inner potential to achieve great things in life. These initiatives have brought colors in the way they are responding and making progress.

Health

With health care sector advancing at a rapid pace, its rising expenditure has made it difficult for many to bear the brunt of it. Here the Supertron Foundation has extended its support to organizations like “We Can Cancer Cannot”, a cancer awareness society working closely with ‘Saroj Gupta Cancer Centre’ with some medical facilities like physiotherapy conducted by experts.

Disability

Disability is not an unfortunate physical or mental condition, at our foundation we consider disabled as differently abled and we support them to develop their inherent talents. “Cheshire Home” not only provide their shelter but also trains them to stand on their own feet and prove to the society that they are no less. Supertron has been providing them with computers and other amenities to care for them. Supertron Foundation also extends its unconditional support towards “Premasree” a home for the visually impaired children. This doesn’t stop here, the foundation also takes care of a number of old age homes with both emotional and social support. The foundation believes that all these people are an integral part of the community and they should always feel loved and included.

Skill Development Training

Any kind of vocational excellence requires proper training and honing of the existing skills in a person. But it’s easier said than done especially for those who strive to struggle everyday for equal opportunities. There are hundreds of them who deserve that chance but just waiting for the right training. Keeping that in mind, Supertron Foundation has decided to support them in their endeavors by providing them with proper technical expertise and means in the form of computers, projectors. Behala Annwesha- the Quest work for differently abled children and provide them with several vocational trainings and creative dance to make them self-reliant and achieve something like any other children of their age. Their goal is to extend hope and assurance even to the parents that their children are not a burden and can be a reason forhappiness if given proper love, guidance and patience. Kolkata Sanved aims to heal, empower and transform the lives of women through dance and dance therapy and make them into active citizens of the country.Their DMT (Dance Movement Therapy) which is a psychotherapeutic use of movementsand expressions in order to freed them from any physical, mental and emotionalshackles. The affected individuals are also provided with skill development trainings like teaching, computer training and others to turn them into the change makers of tomorrow. Supertron Foundation has been a close chaperone of both these organizations & has provided unconditional support and facilities like computer, printer etc.
