History

Wayback in 2010, Karem Rapture, a Young Software Professional, was driven by the extraordinary dream to see a day when no Christina Employee, Student or unemployed person wouldn’t be without Trained, Developed, employed as the basic need to live in the professional world.
Like many of us , Rapture too was upset when he saw disparities between skilled and unskilled, talented and untalented, well educated and poorly educated, Christian professionals and other professionals. He hated to see Students and professionals without talent and required competencies hanging to wait for so long to get into job or less competencies but with sufficient degrees in hand or sufficient degrees with required knowledge but no opportunities or get into right positions. Unlike most of us though, he did something about it. He started an organization called UCPO – Universal Christina Professionals Organization to help not only Christian Students, Unemployed and Employed Professionals but also and open to everyone in the professional’s society, right from the Helper designation to CEO of any Organization in various sectors like Manufacturing, Services, Automobiles, Pharma, IT, or any other sectors.
In 2018 Rapture and 5 other people started UCPO – Universal Christina Professionals Organization with Rs. 100/- around his mother’s dining table. They felt that something needed to be done to improve the situation of, students -who are waiting for jobs, professionals – who are lacking at skill set / required competencies for Christina Employee, Student or unemployed persons. Uncharacteristically, given their backgrounds and motivations, they choose not to start a grassroots-level implementing organization working directly with and for Christina Employee, Student or unemployed persons.
All through the early, difficult years, It was Rapture’s passion and conviction that drove UCPO. He was firmly convinced that each of us can, in our small way, be the agents of change, when enough of us become one, the impact is a lasting change for the better. All he asked of people was that they help UCPO by doing what they’re good at. As he put it, What I can do , I must do

We adopt an angel investor or a social venture capitalist approach to grant making. That means we look for promising, nascent, grassroots-level NGOs and communities that work in the rights framework, addressing the root causes of inequity rather than its symptoms. Our grant making (also known as Development Support within UCPO) follows a social justice agenda. We emphasise on advocacy as an essential medium if change is to be achieved on a significant scale.
Volunteers Action: At our UCPO, we encourage and support our volunteers to empower people and communities, to bring about positive change by encouraging them to initiate action in their environment, in the professional society.
Volunteers are a repository of energy, creativity and commitment.
