“Where are you looking for God- when he is in front of you in every living being, in many different forms? Those who serve mankind (and any other living being) are serving God” -- Swami Vivekananda.

Inspired by this thought of Swami Vivekananda, a group of people who share common values and ideals formed UPASA (United Pravaasa Aatmeeyula Society of America) - a nonprofit organization dedicated to identifying, addressing and fulfilling social, cultural and educational needs of Telugu communities.

Who are we

With the objective of ascertaining the right to independence, self-reliance and non-alignment for the Telugus, UPASA (United Pravaasa Aatmeeyula Society of America) was founded in the beginning of 2017. We are a group of like-minded people founded this nonprofit organization to hurriedly find solutions for the most urgent needs of poor and needy Telugu people. We work hard for the eradication of poverty, illiteracy and unemployment. Headquartered in Texas USA, we have many rural and urban development centers to provide medical, financial and educational assistance to the Telugu speaking people suffering from poverty, illiteracy and unemployment. Moreover, we offer ethical support to alleviate the sufferings of Telugu communities for the betterment of their life.


We believe “unity is strength”. Inspired by this belief, we unite all the members of UPASA to uphold the individual dignity and mutual respect. We invite the people with a common area of interest and bring them under one umbrella organization to collectively work and instill confidence, self-dependence and self-reliance in them.

Transparency & Accountability

We ensure transparency and accountability by holding all the members of the Executive Committee and the Board of Directors to the values as specified in the organizational By-Laws.


We would like to make UPASA a pioneer and a role model through innovations and diffusion of innovations in the entrepreneurial promotion and community service in North America and other parts of the World to accelerate the process of development by making Telugu people aware of the needs and opportunities to meet these exactly. We will facilitate the decision process and help put the practices smoothly and swiftly into effect. Our supports and services are not limited to the Indian states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana (home to Telugu people), we pursue useful and essential projects in the areas of Literacy, Education, Sanitation, Health promotion, and Rehabilitation.

To identify, address and fulfill social, financial and educational needs of North American Telugu Community in particular and Telugu people in general.
