But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing pleasure and praising pain was born and will give you a complete account of the system and expound the actual teachings of the great explore
This is one of the famous patriotic songs. Written by Rajinder Krishan and sung by none other than Mohd. Rafi sahab. As the lyrics of this particular song state about our nation, India is one of the richest nations. But after the British rule, things changed drastically. We were left mere slaves to foreign people in our own lands. After 74 years (as of July 2022) of independence, we are still a developing nation whilst the other lands have grown immensely. We still face the issue of poverty.
Uttarakhand is one of the fastest growing states, poverty reduction is one of the primary aims of SUCA. The central and southern parts of Uttarakhand have a high rate of poverty. The economic growth of the state comes from non-farm sectors. And to have one such source, one needs education, right and quality education. The poverty rate in India is 25.01% whereas the poverty rate in Almora district reaches 25.65% which is more than the national poverty rate.

Our Uttarakhand might be making some growth but if most of the people are living below the poverty line that means we have not made much growth.
For us to achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, we have to work in unity to lower these numbers.
The decline in these numbers won’t just give a sustainable life to the poor but also lead us to growth and a developed nation.
Poverty is not a curse, it is a condition and education is the only medicine.
The foremost target of our is to provide quality education to all. The kind of education that is provided to every person without any discrimination on the basis of sex, caste, colour and religion.
One of the main targets of SUCA is to create a sustainable life for the people living below the poverty line. We want every human to have a life where at least they can afford their basic needs.
We want to guide our children in their careers. We will provide them with career counselling and Skill Development programs. This will help them to understand their career choices and create better opportunities in their lives.
The other target of SUCA is to eradicate poverty from our state by 2030, following the Sustainable Development Goals, accepted by the UN members nations.
We want 100% employment for youths. Even if a child completes their education in any field, they should receive employment, without any discrimination. Education and financial independence are the keys to eradicating poverty from our state and nation.
We want to illuminate the lives of the less privileged. The poor kids living in either orphanages or any slum area should also be provided with education. This is our chance to create a literate nation free of poverty.
