Udayan Care

Appalled by the stark reality of 31 million orphans in India and shocked by the condition of institutions housing them, a few like- minded individuals got together to take serious action. This obsession was the seed which sprouted as Udayan Care, - which was registered in 1994, as a Public Charitable Trust. While our first initiative was the Udayan Ghar programme for orphaned and abandoned children, we gradually worked towards ensuring higher education for girls through the Udayan Shalini Fellowship. In 2004, Udayan Care also initiated an Outreach programme for children affected by HIV, as well the Udayan Information and Technology Centres to improve employability of under-served communities...

We are so grateful to Alexis, Programme Manager, Global Giving for taking out some time to meet USF Fellows in her short trip to India. After Global Giving’s ambassador’s visit last year, it was the second time that a direct global giving representative visited Udayan Care and spent time with the fellows and children we work with.

It was an amazing experience for our fellow girls since they got to meet Alexis, who is a face of those who had supported them in transforming their life and allow them to fulfill their aspiration for higher education. Alexis had a group interaction with our Shalini’s in which they told her about the transforming experiences of their journey and how the programme had groomed their personality and inculcated a sense of leadership and confidence in them.

We are so grateful to Alexis, Programme Manager, Global Giving for taking out time to visiting our Udayan Ghar Children on 26-06-2014. It was a wonderful experience for our little girls where they enjoyed a big laugh, a dance and a lunch with her. Our kids were so excited and happy on meeting Alexis. Besides our children, she was very delighted and touched after meeting the children.

It was a wonderful experience for me to visit your organization and such an inspiration to meet all your fellows. I think the Mentor Mothers are doing a great job in caring those children”.

"Empowerment & Personality Development of Girls"

Capacity Building Workshop
Capacity Building Workshop

Udayan Care initiated the programme with a Visionto turn deserving and talented girls from weak socio-economic into empowered and dignified women. Since the programme’s uniqueness lies in the fact that it goes beyond being a usual scholarship programme by not only supporting higher education but also providing regular mentoring and leadership development and inculcating a sense of social responsibility to the selected talented girls. Therefore, many personality development Workshops and camps were organised during the period of reporting. All of these workshops were based on the objective to develop Confidenceand Leadership skills in their Personality. Following are the few activities organised during the reporting period

  • To develop Confidence in our students a workshop was organised by one of our Alumnae student and our volunteer from one of our Cooperate partners. The Workshop was divided in three sessions – the first session talked about the identification of motivation factors in ourselves and the second discussed about how to get over your fear and how to balance between confidence and over confidence. The last session emphasized on Identifying the five signs that show lack of confidence, How to overcome shyness and the Strategies to bring for instant confidence in ourselves.

Since one of our Resource person for the workshop was one of our Alumnaestudent, it brings the sense of responsibility of giving back to the society amongst our existing students.

  • With the central theme of Leadership & Personality Development a five days Residential Camp was organised during the month of May, 2014. The basic aim of the camp was to provide meaningful exposure to the fellows of different states, to interact, participate and engage on a common platform for mutual learning and develop positive attitude towards each other.

Every day was planned around the OBJECTIVES and activities were also planned accordingly.

social campaign was also organised by our students during the reporting period. The campaign was organised to create awareness about the cause and the preventive measures of DIARROHEA. The Camapign helped both illiterate and literate mothers to understand the causes of Diarrohea and how they can protect their children from the disease.
