Sanskruti Samvardhan Pratishthan (SSP) has dedicated itself for inculcating values based on Bhartiya Culture amongst the students for their all-round development and progress. SSP is a non-profit voluntary organization which has started in 2003 with the need to develop an alternative system and mechanism to provide and spread the moral education through schools.
Through its various innovative activities and programs like Collective Shlokas Recitation and Value Education Projects, SSP inculcate the moral and cultural values. Various stories from the Ramayana and The Mahabharata are used to make children aware of our heroes and thus gain some learning from their inspirational life. We believe, these activities help to make child more ethical and socially responsible individual. The sole objective of SSP is enabling children to inculcate good habits, to breed their familiarity with the great patriotic leaders of the yester years and to make them ideal citizens when they grow. We conduct these activities in four languages namely, English, Hindi, Marathi, & Gujarati.
All through these years, the spread of this program has been showing astounding and consistent developments every year. This fact is not only highly encouraging, but also it emphasizes the felt need of such an effort in today’s scenario of global insecurity and unduly excessive importance to materialistic values. This program is being implemented not only in the private schools, but also in schools run by Municipal Corporation.
Till date, SSP has been conducting its programme in approximately 500 schools in the 36 divisions of Mumbai and Maharashtra. Every year minimum one lakh students get benefit of the moral education program conducted by SSP.

This also drives away negatives thoughts from their lives.
