Amount Awarded (INR)


Founded by Dr. Navin & Lava Boggavarapu along with their children Ramya, Jeevan and Gautham from Marlboro, New Jersey, USA in 2006. It all started with a 5 year old girl’s decision to help out. Ramya Boggavarapu, a very generous 5 year old child, gave half of her birthday money ($44 dollars) to our charity. Her donation was used to reward two outstanding children. The first cash award of Rs. 900 went to Pavan Kumar, a student of St. Joseph Public School in grade III, Cherukupalli, Guntur, AP, India. His GPA was 4.0 (A+). The second award of Rs. 1000 went to Ruth Seelam, a student of Seventh-day Adventist High School, Hyderabad, AP, India in grade I, for securing first in her class.The award is named “Dr. Boggavarapu Subbarao Memorial Award” from their Boggavarapu Foundation. In a few years, the award has become so popular and the family continued to support. There were only 2 recipients in the year 2006. In 2016, there were 425 award recipients. The family have standardized the award by rewarding the merit students with a cash award of Rs.1000 for any child who comes first in their class/grade, Rs. 750 for second and Rs. 500 for the third rank respectively. It has become so popular all over India and has been producing phenominal results among the children. It brought competitive spirit among students. Uplift a Child is thankful to the Boggavarapu family for making a difference with their family contribution.
