About ITSD centers

Social Campaign “Save Yamuna”

Students from one of our centers, during DaanUtsav, conducted a social campaign on importance of clean and safe water reservoirs. The students took initiative to make people and the community aware of the significance of reservoirs for the economic and ecological needs. Through this campaign they have urged the community to prevent water pollution and protect the river YAMUNA from losing its purity. Students designed attractive posters & illustrations and this visual communication material helped them to create awareness for clean Yamuna.

Mr Ajay Arora (Sub Division Magistrate-MayurVihar), Mr Haji Sharif Ahmad (Chief Warden, District-East Delhi) has joined this social campaign and motivated our students to make this social campaign successful.

 

Workshop with UPS Foundation “Badarpur IT Centre”

UPS (United Parcel Service) US based company who works with Udayan Care IT program since 2012. On Saturday 24.09.2016, 32 volunteers organized a workshop with our Badarpur IT center students. During this workshop they conducted fun based games, quiz contest, & competition. After the fun activities, volunteers shared their work experience; they counseled students on how they can make their career in the field of logistics. At the end of the day, they distributed the prizes to students and gave a small treat to students with a delicious meal. 

 

Miracle of hope

Ravi ( Name Changed)  was armed with powerful wings to fly high and achieve his dreams.

He belongs to a very poor family which is supported by nominal financial resources, since his father works as a peon and his income is the only source of family income for them. After completing 12th from a govt school, Ravi pursued distance learning from IGNOU. Simultaneously, he also joined basic computer course in our East vinod Nagar center (one of our centers in East Delhi). He trained himself in Basic computer skills & typing skills from Udayan Care and, thereafter, with the help of the placement cell, he got an opportunity to work in Vivid Techno (Wajirabad, Delhi) at a decent salary.

Recently, I started working with Vivid Techno as a Search Engine Optimization (SEO). I’m enjoying my work profile and I believe my hard work will prove to be fruitful very soon.

After completing one month internship successfully, 6 students got the opportunity to work with Brightwaay, as a designing executive.

Success story:-

With the reference of an employee of Udayan Care, Sahil(name changed) connected with Youth Leadership Centre. Almost one year had passed since Sahil had completed his graduation from Rohilkhand University, UP. When the Udayan Care's employee heard his story, he suggested Sahil to join the Youth Leadership Program to make a career in the field of Graphic Designing.

Sahil belongs to Bareli, UP. His father runs a small grocery shop to bear his household expenses, near a mosque close to his house. Sahil shifted to Delhi at his cousin’s place in Okhla, Delhi. There are many reasons why he came to the capital. Despite of being a graduate, he could not get a job in his home town and things were going from bad to worse. He joined the Youth Leadership Centre to learn the Graphic & Print Design course along with soft skills training. He is a reserved and quite natured guy. He did not speak too much in the class. He took this course seriously and performed very well while he prepared designs to use Adobe software. Sahil had never seen big dreams as he never had enough exposure to the opportunities that are made available as one steps out into the real world.  He always said, “I need a platform to prove myself professionally and earn enough to support my family & sustain myself in Delhi.” Sahil successfully completed his course, & earned an internship in one of the esteemed organizations in the field of Graphic design. He has completed a 1 month internship in the McCann world group, Kalka Ji, Delhi, and also received a good stipend. After completion of his internship, he received an opportunity to work as a Graphic Designer with a good entry level salary package.

Family's Feedback- Sahil’s father said, "He is a quiet and simple person. Sometimes, it scares us to think if he would be able to sustain himself in a big city like Delhi. But so far, Sahil has managed everything very well and after seeing his success, we are extremely proud.

Employer's feedback: - His employer said, Sahil speaks less but his work cannot be measured as less. He is a dedicated and hardworking person.

Updates from this quarter

 

Workshop on “How to maximize brain’s potential”

The month of March means exam time (in India) which is a hectic time in the life of the students.  This month, Udayan Care decided to give some tips to students for increasing their skills and improving their concentration power. We had conducted a small workshop on the topic "How to maximize brain's potential".

This workshop was structured for two hours with two sessions:

 1:- How to do mind mapping with brainstorming

2:- Activity on chart paper

During the first session,the mentor taught the students how people have used brainstorming sessions to generate ideas and how to come up with creative solutions to overcome hitches. However, you need to use brainstorming correctly for it to be abundantly fruitful.Brainstorming combines a relaxed, informal approach to problem solving with lateral thinking. It encourages people to come up with thoughts and ideas that can, at first, seem a bit bizarre. Some of these ideas can be crafted into original, creative solutions to overcome a problem, while others can spark even more ideas. This helps to get people unstuck by "jolting" them out of their normal ways of thinking.

In the second session students learnt about mind mapping. Mind mapping helps to organize thoughts when we are struggling with brainstorming. Our students prepared a mind map on a chart paper by using different topics like:- Lifestyle, Enjoyment, & sports etc. Once they were done, they gave a small presentation, during which they explained how they prepared mind maps revolving around the topic.

 

Exposure Visit

Our Graphic & Print Design students have polished themselves actively. Udayan Care has decided to give exposure to boost them through a visit to Ajanta offset & Packaging Ltd. (Printing Press) Faridabad, Haryana. During this exposure visit, students understood the process of printing, gathering process pertaining to book making, 3 steps folding process and all those things which, as a graphic designer, one has to keep in mind while designing the print material.

 

The vision of Youth Voices Program was to empower young people to harness creativity and digital skills to create change in their lives and their communities. We enroll 20 students in a 6 month duration course. Through dedicated educators, we inspire young people to be intentional and impactful in their media making, to create using youth voices and digital media for social change in communities.

 

Women’s Day Celebration

Young girls from United Decoratives-Udayan Care IT Center were excited to celebrate women's day at the center. Students decided to dedicate this day to Dr. Kiran Modi (Managing Trustee-Udayan Care), who has rendered her services in the field of welfare of children.

On the occasion of women’s day, we organized a card making workshop. During the workshop, the students prepared cards for Dr. Modi to wish her a happy women's day. The girls quoted beautiful lines about her efforts in the field of child welfare and in the field of education.

 

 

Nothing can stop a dedicated women

Anjali(name changed), a young girl belonging to Garhwal, Uttrakhand grew up in Delhi with her four siblings. She is a simple girl. When she was admitted to the DCA course at our Badarpur center, her mother came everyday to pick and drop her. After a few months, Anjalistarted feeling confident about coming alone to the center. Now, she is working with Digital Media at Kalkaji and she travels up and down daily from Badarpur to Kalka ji by metro.

“I enjoy working on computers. Recently, I started working with digital media with the help of Udayan care placement cell, but this is just the beginning of the fulfillment of my dreams. I want to work with a big organization and I know I have to work hard to make this possible.”
