UTTARAYAN is a non-governmental and non-profit making organization (NGO) based and working in Maharashtra in India.
UTTARAYAN,which is a Sanskrit word, which marks the end of a long winter with the return of the sun to the Northern Hemisphere and hence the name Uttarayan. The journey of UTTARAYAN as a registered NGO began in 2004. UTTARAYAN was established to provide education to the underprivileged children, to build better lively hood opportunities for the rural and underprivileged urban youth, to enrich quality health services for adolescent girls and women.
The thought process behind UTTARAYAN is that quality education is the only medium that can improve the living standards of the poor people.
