In India, millions of children go without access to education and as many as 8.4 crores children continue to remain out of schools. Education, being the one important tool to transform lives lies at the bottom of the priority list and the children are forced to beg, pick rags and are abused severely. While speaking of providing Roti, Kapda, aur makaan to uplift the downtrodden communities, we often don’t realize that these are just a one-time intervention.
UPAY- Underprivileged’s Advancement by Youth- which translates in Hindi as – A solution believes that Education is the only means to uplift the Nation. With the objective to remove disparities in the field of education, we’ve come up with an initiative of transforming streets into schools with the help of a volunteer-based offering. The mission is to join hands with the immensely rich and already literate human capital of India to eradicate illiteracy from the rest of the country and break the seemingly unbreakable deadlock through a tailor-made curriculum as per the child’s need.
Our Reach and Impact:
Our strong team of more than 300 Volunteers believes that if a child cannot reach to school, let the school reach the child and with this spirit, we’ve impacted more than 8000 underprivileged children from the streets and slums in the last 10 years and presently enroll about 1800 children in 38 learning centers in various cities of India like- Mouda, Nagpur, Pune, Delhi, Gurugram, Noida and Bengaluru.
The donations collected through this campaign will be utilized to build a classroom for the underprivileged children. We would like to rent out a space near to the slum and develop the infrastructure needed.
