Mr. Jay Sonaji Upase, a well-educated person, born in a middle-class family in Aurangabad District of Maharashtra was deeply hurt by some social incidents happening around like farmer suicide, disruption of families due to poverty and the heart wrenching conditions of their children who became orphans and tender age. Such bitter experiences made him introvert and he decided to do his bit for the society and with that inspiration he started an organisation “Urmi” in 2016.

We had children of different ages coming to our organization who comes from different sections of society and their needs are different. We do not get any funds for the government. We spend on our own to provide basic facilities at our organization.
Our Aim is to provide the children with proper boarding facilities, nutritional food, proper clothing, family support, security and training, education, carrier guidance along with personality and skill development programs which will enable them to be responsible citizens of country and will ultimately lead to nation building.
