Education is a powerful tool that empowers communities to turn around their lives. If any member of a family is educated, especially women, it can help the coming generations to break the inter-generational cycles of poverty. Education is a great enabler – it makes people skilled and equips them to engage in meaningful professions and thus contribute to their own and society’s socio-economic well-being. In India, even today, millions of children go without any access to education. As many as 8.4 crore children in India continue to remain out of school. It’s a major social problem plaguing modern-day India and strong measures are needed to ensure the benefits of education touch everyone.
Over the years, UPAY has provided thousands of disadvantaged children access to quality and enabling education. The organization’s work has made it possible for gifted and hard-working children to have access to opportunities they could not have imagined before.
I've been associated with UPAY for the last three years and have understood that as aware and responsible citizens of the country, we need to ensure that businesses are sensitized towards the harms of child labor and they refrain from hiring children for work which will, in turn, discourage parents and children to choose money over education. The need for the hour is to make communities aware of their rights and proud of a child’s education. Educated communities will not just create better citizens but also ensure better employment and enterprise.
Through our Reach & Teach initiative at Delhi chapter of UPAY, we're impacting the lives of more than 250 children in the urban slums who are left out of schools due to various social and economic reasons and face widespread discrimination. Our goal is to improve access & quality of education for 250 children through enrollment of deprived children in the learning centers & regular attendance, provide educational resources. We strive for holistic growth and development of the underprivileged children, which will put them on the path toward breaking the pervasive cycles of poverty in their slum communities and also have a bright future in their careers, especially Destitute Girl Children will be protected from Child marriages, trafficking, domestic servant maids.
We seek your support to strengthen our endeavour and facilitate the children with better resources, study materials, and mentors.
