    Non-formal Education
     
    Mission: Non-formal education for underprivileged women and children

    Through our after-school learning program, U&I Teach invests in children from underprivileged backgrounds with courses in English, Math, Science and Social Studies. Under this umbrella, we also run 360 Program where children are given a holistic education through science camps, field trips, art workshops and career building workshops, in order to build their confidence. Today, U&I reaches 850 children in 10 cities across India. Our goal is to give every student the opportunity to shine in the classroom - and beyond.
    Transforming Insititutional Care
    Mission: Transforming Institutional Care
    Providing Care & Rehabilitation for 85 Mentally Challenged Children

    At U&I Care, our vision is to transform institutional care in our country. U&I assists in the care and rehabilitation of 85 mentally challenged and 100 special needs men at two Bangalore-based, state-run residential facilities. With nineU&I staff working full time on the ground in these Homes, we provide medical care, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and grooming for the residents, many of whom have been abandoned by their families. Our volunteers also spend time with these residents every week, giving them the social interaction that they crave. Our goal is that each of these differently-abled individuals would live to their fullest potential.

  • OUR STORY

    U&I is a volunteer-driven charitable organization based in Bangalore, India. The vision for U&I was inspired when our Co-founders, Ajit Sivaram and Satish Manchikanti, along with a few friends, would visit the Institute for Mentally Handicapped Children every Sunday. The group would hang out with the special needs boys at the Home, playing games with them or spending time cleaning the compound. They realized that ordinary people coming together can make a huge difference in the lives of the neglected. Over time, the handful of friends grew into a 50+ strong volunteer group.

     

    Around the same time as this social outreach, Satish ran a successful HR business. After discussions with Ajit, he decided to use the office space to conduct computer classes in the evening for children from a nearby slum. It was here that U&I was birthed. With the heart-warming response from volunteers and the students, Satish and Ajit decided that the idea of teaching kids through volunteers was worth pursuing. That was back in 2011.

     

    Today, U&I reaches 1200 children in 33 Learning Centers across 13 cities in India through our Teach program. We work with 1500 volunteers who give their time, talent and energy so they can be the change. We continue the work that was started in the Home for special needs boys, now expanding our Care program to 4 other Homes.

     

    We continue to believe in the potential of every child we reach. We continue to hold firm to the idea that, together, we can make a difference.
