U and I is a volunteer-driven charitable organization based in Bangalore, India. The vision for U&I was inspired when our Co-founders visited the Institute for Mentally Handicapped Children. The group hung 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. Both the founders decided to use the office space to conduct computer classes in the evening for children from a nearby slum. Thus U and I was formed. In 2011, the founders decided that the idea of teaching kids through volunteers was worth pursuing. Today, U&I reaches 1600 children in 50 Learning Centers across 18 cities in India. They still continue the work in that was started in the Home for special needs boys.
