How You Can Contribute in Education of Underprivileged Kids

The development of our society in the future relies on the quality of education children receive now. It is this belief that inspired UPAY (Underprivileged Advancement by Youth), an NGO with the mission to provide free education to underprivileged children. Our NGO  was founded in May 2010 by a group of young engineers from IIT and NIT in a small village called Kumbhari on the outskirts of Nagpur. Since then, UPAY has blossomed into a registered NGO with 21 centers across the country that enable free access to education for underprivileged sections of society. 

UPAY uses two unique models to implement our mission. The first is Footpath Shala, a ‘street to school’ initiative aimed at children living on the footpaths in urban areas; the second is the Reach ’n’ Teach Centre, which involves providing regular classroom tuition to students in rural areas.

Currently, we cater to over 1200 students and aim to reach 5000 students by the year 2020. Though this target may seem ambitious, we believe that we can achieve it with the aid of people like you, those who have supported us in the past and are sure to continue to do so in the future. 

The power to build a better tomorrow lies within each and every one of us, and we know that you will do everything you can in order to help.
