Journey of UpTodd has roots which started in 2015 when three dedicated individuals united with a mission to transform the lives of children. As founders of an education-focused NGO, they were surprised to see the untapped potential in the children, burdened by gaps in their foundation. It was a concern that weighed heavily on their hearts, and they were determined to find a solution that would give these children the right start in life.
Concerns lead the team to Meet and collaborate with over 5000 parents in 2 years, revealed a treasure trove of untapped potential within each child, regardless of their background.

Parents aspire to provide their children with a brighter future, free from the obstacles they experienced. However, the complexities of modern life often impede the realization of this dream.
