Partnering with 

It is estimated that over 200 million people live on less than $1.90 a day in India alone. Those in extreme poverty often have to turn to irregular or dangerous income activities and, without a stable job, struggle to break out of the cycle of poverty. 

Upaya Social Ventures was founded with the objective to create stable and dignified jobs for the ultra-poor. They do this by partnering with early-stage, social entrepreneurs in India, providing them with consulting support and investment to help them grow their businesses and employ more people in their communities.
