U&I is a volunteer-driven charitable organization based in Bangalore, India. The vision for U&I was inspired by a few friends, including our Co-founders, visiting the State Home for Mentally Challenged Boys on a regular basis. They realized the huge difference that ordinary people coming together can make. Over time, a handful of friends grew into a 50+ strong volunteer group.
At the same time, our Co-Founder Satish ran a successful HR business from his own office. He decided to use the office space ito conduct computer classes in the evening for children from a nearby slum. It was here that U&I was birthed. With the heartwarming response from volunteers and the impact on students, Satish and Ajit decided that the idea was worth pursuing. Today, U&I reaches 850 children in 20 Learning Centers across 10 cities in India. We continue the work that was started in the Home for special needs boys. We continue to tutor children through the week. We continue to believe in every child that we reach and that, together, we can make a difference.
