Believing on “Education is Freedom”, UPES has adopted 51 girls, to help them in their educational progress. These girls are from the nearby villages such as Bidholi, Bishenpur, Upper Kandoli, Pondha,Dunga, Masraj Patti and Bakarna which are located within 20 km radius of UPES Campus. These girls have been given the name "UPES DAUGHTERS" as they are considered and addressed as daughters of the university and just the way any guardian would, the university takes complete care of the welfare and betterment of these young girls. Their education, meeting their needs and ensuring that they get to choose the field of study they are inclined towards, is the responsibility that UPES has willingly taken.
UPES treats it’s daughters as compassionately as any caretaker would and this is precisely why the university extends its support beyond the learning parameters and takes care of the holistic development of their personality, attitude and confidence. Every year UPES daughters are taken to various places to give them wider exposure.
UPES took its adopted girls to visit Rashtrapati Bhawan, New Delhi and they met Former President Her Excellency, Smt. Pratibha Devi Singh Patil in 2012.
The children are also taken for Trips & Excursions by air. The girls were taken to Mussoorie, Dhanolti and Gurgaon in May 2013. The trip included various fun activities and visiting the main attractions at these places.
