Our Story

 

Sukhi was born from a combination of the pain witnessed within our inner circles and the desire to leverage technology in a thoughtful manner. We have seen first hand how stigma and a lack of access to culturally competent services have exacerbated our community's ability to improve their social and emotional well-being.

We know some conversations can be harder than others. So we built a platform to make it easier for people to connect and celebrate their diversity.
