About UPAY Delhi
“Whatever comes easy won’t last, whatever lasts won’t come easy.”
The story of UPAY’s Delhi Zone aptly describes this.
The Delhi zone presently includes three centres, one at Karol Bagh, the other at Noida Sector 17 and the latest one in Tilak Nagar. The Karol Bagh centre was established on 16th September 2017. The journey was a roller coaster ride that included many hurdles. From finding an appropriate place, to gaining the confidence of the parents, everything was a challenge. The meticulous team of volunteers helped it establish its firm roots and stand its place. On the first day itself, we had 35 children and a volunteer team comprising of Abhishek Yadav (DU), Abhishek Yadav (ORN), Ankit Anand, Nimita Negi, Sharad Kumar, Shruti Garg and Seema. Appreciable efforts were made by all the volunteers. The beneficiaries at this center are the children living on the street sides of Gaffar market.
The story of the Noida centre was no less different. The first centre was started at Botanical Garden with the aim to education the children in the slums and reach out to as many children as possible. After the survey was conducted by Tanay and Akanksha, the basis for the first centre was laid in Noida. The classes were taken up at a construction site. However, due to the volatile nature of the work of their families, the students number started reducing. This posed a challenge to the team. Tanay along with the Chairman, UPAY, Varun Shrivastava and Deboshree Bhattacharya identified a new location at sector 17, Noida. This marked the establishment of our present centre in April 2018, which has the strength of 37 students who are regular to the class.
Three years down the lane, Delhi zone has established itself in the chapter of UPAY making it one of the best NGOs in Delhi. “All is well that ends well.” The entire Delhi zone team at present is working very hard and their efforts are really appreciable. The journey has begun. Hoping for it to last forever. A small contribution from our side can change the life of so many innocent children.
