About

Uthishta is a multifaceted organization conceptualized by a small group of youngsters with a big idea, predominantly from the IT industry, in the year 2006 and came into formal existence in 2008. Uthishta primarily aim to serve people who have been socially and economically marginalized, by reaching out to them with programs to foster self-reliance and aim to reduce dependence on outside assistance.Uthishta’s activity is made possible by the generosity of donors and volunteers inspired by the spirit of service.

Uthishta aims to provide all types of support and assistance to the underprivileged sections of our society. Dedicated to serve those in need; we build programs such as

  • Assistance to students in education
  • Deliver cost effective and culturally aligned health services to most vulnerable, including women, children and indigenous people
  • Provide relief to people affected during natural/man-made calamities
  • Empowering communities and individuals through sustained support
  • Conduct programs that promote cultural and moral value in society.

We aim to see happiness and well-being in everyone and everywhere taking cue from the
Sanskrit prayer,

“Aum sarve bhavantu sukhinah,
sarve santu niramayah,
sarve bhadrani pasyantu,
Ma kaschid-dukha-bhaag-bhavet”.

We believe in translating our compassion and concern into useful service, realizing the fact that we are all connected as one human family. This realization motivates Uthishta’s work as we build programs that support under privileged people around rural India, helping them to build healthy communities, promoting sustainability and working through partnerships.
