Now in its 10th year, S'Prayas is Syntel’s Corporate Social Responsibility vehicle. Founded in 2006 with the mission of "Enriching Young Minds", S’Prayas has created new opportunities for many bright, underprivileged children in the communities we call home.
As a technology company, we believe in holistic enrichment and imparting knowledge through the power of computer learning. Over our 10-year journey we have set up computer labs at NGO centers across India, and our volunteers have worked tirelessly to help children in these communities develop life skills and become responsible and productive members of society.
S’Prayas leverages Syntel’s most important resource — our people — and their collective knowledge to help these children enrich their lives. Our volunteers contribute their time, skills and experience to work with local outreach programs to drive social change.
Syntel’s commitment to innovation is reflected in the S’Prayas computer-based learning approach, which incorporates the latest educational thinking and digital tools to prepare disadvantaged youth to join tomorrow’s workforce.
Enactus is a global community of student, academic and business leaders using the power of entrepreneurial action to transform lives and shape a more sustainable world. Teams of university students develop social entrepreneurship programs to be judged by a panel of business leaders in an annual tournament, and winners from each country compete in the Enactus World Cup.
Syntel Co-founder Bharat Desai introduced Enactus to India in 2003, and Syntel continues to support Enactus through operational support, mentorship, and sponsorship of the Enactus India National Championship.
Marrow Donor Registry of India
Syntel has partnered with the Marrow Donor Registry of India (MDRI) to help identify and match potential donors for patients with life-threatening blood diseases such as leukemia.

In addition, Syntel provides additional support by hosting and managing the MDRI stem cell donor database, making this important resource available and searchable by patients requiring a transplant anywhere across globe.
