The students passing out from UPAY were not taking up higher studies and degrees due to lack of resources, household disturbances, and various other reasons. The prime reason cited by many was the unavailability of a learning space in the household that higher study demands. With the thought of encouraging the youth in under-resourced localities to pursue higher education, community learning spaces were established in 2018.
UPAY has specially developed in villages and slums to provide a structured infrastructure to senior students as well as volunteers. We have 3 community libraries where more than 250 young learners actively use our library spaces and are pursuing higher education and are preparing for competitive exams. We also arrange guest lectures and career counseling by industry leaders.
