Project uP is an organisation working towards policy research, training and positive policy advocacy aimed at child welfare and ensuring accessible education for all.
Project uP is known for its impactful on-ground initiatives, like the Diwali Mela, Secret Santa Donation, Umang, etc. We also conduct online events, which consist of advocacy based webinars and SDG dialogues, along with Research Conclaves in partnership with UNESCO, New Delhi etc.
RESEARCH AND TRAINING
We have two flagship research & training initiatives- the Research Bootcamp, which equips the youth with tools of research, and I.M.P.A.C.T., which trains young people to engage in domains relating to policy-consulting. We also established the International Journal of Policy Sciences and Law in 2020, with thematic areas wide enough to encourage people from all fields to get published!
With an aim of impacting one life at a time, we’ve successfully carried out Social Media campaigns, advocating for issues revolving around various intersections of children and education. Through the different social media platforms, we’ve been able to reach 5000+ people in the last one year.
Advocating for change remains central to all verticals of Project uP. Some of the unique initiatives that have been fundamentally rooted in advocating for the kind of change we aim at bringing are- Lahar (bimonthly magazine), Not Just A Kid (podcast featuring children from diverse backgrounds), Parent Guides (constructing healthier relations among children and parents), and our Policy Liasoning team (lobbying policy change).
At uP, we work with an aim to establish partnerships with organisations that work with the same spirit as ours, and help us reach a larger network, thus creating a greater impact. Two out of the many esteemed partners we have onboard are UNESCO (New Delhi, India), supporting us in the Research Bootcamp, and Kenyatta University (Nairobi, Kenya), providing professional assistance at I.M.P.A.C.T.
