Udayan Care has provided counselling and financial support to 67 families and 80 children during the last quarter January-March 2012. HIV/AIDS is recognized as more than just a health issue – it is an issue of development, of economics, of security, and of human rights.

Quotes of the Beneficiaries: *(Names have been changed to protect privacy rights of parents and children.)

Mandeep* - “I am really grateful to the donor who supported me and my family at a very poor financial stage. After the death of my husband, I was worried about the future of my children, but it is my good luck that I became a part of this programme and my children are now doing well.”

Reshma*- “How I can forget that this programme has changed my entire life. When my first husband passed away, my in-laws threw me and my daughter out of their house. I joined this programme and fortunately met with a man and got remarried to him. Now I am happily married and living with my two daughters.”

During the last quarter all the children appeared in their final examination and are expecting good results. Their parents also supported them throughout, not only by providing them with good nutritious food but also boosting their moral to help them thrive well in academics.  

Monthly Workshops for HIV+ Parents:

 Objectives

To strengthen the capacity of families and family networks by facilitating an environment for the HIV infected parents, Udayan Care conducts monthly workshops with them on the last Sunday of every month. The agenda is to make them realize their potential of creating and using institutions of mutual self-help for themselves.

Monthly Workshops for Affected children of HIV +ve Parents:

 

In order to make the HIV affected children realize the charm of childhood, we also conducted workshops with them. For instance, we organized a drawing/painting session with them, where they freely shared their feelings and emotions with others. Through the workshops, Udayan Outreach Programme aims to help the children develop their personality and overcome the emotional trauma they have experienced in their lives. To build their confidence the workshops were also designed with interactive sessions where children shared their views, opinions and experiences of their lives. 

Sonam*- “I always enjoy the workshop here as I learnt a lot from them. I always participate in my school activities and keep trying my hands on things which I learn here.”
