Children Education

Who We Are

Founded in 2010 by group of young engineers, UPAY is an unique solution to replace the begging bowls with books. When street & slum children are not able to reach the school, UPAY brings school to these children.

UPAY NGO introduces a unique multi-pronged approach of taking education to the kids through a franchise model of sorts. We develop tailor-made initiatives and programs to address the pain-points in education for different cadres of the society.

The Model

  • UPAY NGO primarily focuses on providing free of cost education to under-privileged children through open school class-room programs and various recreational and skill developmental activities aimed at broadening the skill sets of such children.
  • Varun Shrivastava, a young graduate from IIT Kharagpur who was driven by the dream of providing every Indian child with an equal right and access to education, teamed up with 3 equally passionate young engineers to take on this challenge head-on. This marked the foundation of UPAY on 20th May 2010.
  • On the landmark date of 19th September 2011, UPAY was registered under Mumbai Public Trusts Act 1950 and The Societies Registration Act 1860
  • Currently we have total 35 centres across the country which includes  28 Learning centres , 5 skill development centres and 2 libraries. It has expanded from 15 children to more than 1700 children & 260 volunteers in the span of 8 years.
