Achiever's Success Story

Two decades of making digital healthcare sustainable

Ms. Menaka Sharma, Director of SHARP NGO, has been leading the National level Health NGO since last 20 years. SHARP (School Health Annual Report Programme) www.schoolindia.org is a premier Non-Government Organization, with headquarters in New Delhi, started in the year 1999 with 10 schools and 10 doctors.

With over two decades of experience in public health, nutrition & WASH, SHARP has managed to build one of the largest health networks that look after the well-being of school going children. Under its flagship program, SHARP has conducted regular health check-ups and organizes health awareness sessions among 3 million children in 70+ cities in India. It has curated scientifically planned and monitored programmes with the help of nutrition experts, psychologists, sociologists, educationists and medical experts to enhance the quality of life community members. 


Through various partnerships and alliances with government bodies and private companies SHARP has created a platform for mobilization of essential resources for a vast range of projects; from Community Health Check-ups, Skill Building, and Mental health to COVID-19 Relief Operation. SHARP has done more than 300+ projects till date and is making health scalable, accessible, affordable and sustainable for the school children and communities. 

One innovation that has always been very unique to SHARP and contributed to its success all these years has been the inclusion of digital platforms in its programs in as early as 1999. As we move into a society whose greatest capital will be knowledge, they envision SHARP to shift its focus from skill building of individuals to resource building, from which information can be extracted and enacted upon. Building a rich resource, both material and non-material is important just not for expansion, but also for sustainability. The true success of an organisation comes not from its victories of the past, but from the recognition of the changing tides of the future.
