About Udayan Care
Udayan Care is a Public Charitable Trust, working for the last 22 years, for the quality care of disadvantaged children and women.
Vision: To Regenerate the Rhythm of Life of the Disadvantaged
Theory of Change:“There are millions of orphaned and abandoned children in India; in addition, girls from weaker sections of society do not get an equal opportunity to continue their education; professional skills and attitude are lacking among disadvantaged communities to become economically self reliant”.
Udayan Care provides homes to orphaned children while also giving girls financial and development support to continue higher education, and communities to train themselves in vocations, by engaging socially committed individuals, who provide a transformative, nurturing and mentoring environment, to help them realize their full potential.
A nurturing home for every orphaned child, an opportunity for higher education for every girl and for every adult, the dignity of self-reliance and the desire to give back to society.
About the Program
There is a growing demand for Information Technology and vocational training among the poor urban and rural communities including communities around our Udayan homes. We have also found the use of computer and IT vitally important in our counseling programmes for the children of Udayan Homes. Thus, the project intends to focus on mixed communities; communities who are located around our Udayan Homes and those in the densely populated clusters of slums, resettlement colonies and other low income settlements by setting up IT & VT centers for imparting Information Technology and vocational skills training.
To broaden horizons and bring IT close to the lives of underserved rural and urban communities in Delhi and NCR, and thus empower them for greater job prospects

World Environment Day – 5th June 2016
World Environment Day is observed every year on 5thJune to raise global awareness to take positive environmental action to protect nature and the planet Earth. It is run by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) & ‘World Environment Day’ is the United Nations most important day for encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the protection of our environment. To mark this day, Sahibabad center staff decided to organize a “tree Plantation drive”. We motivated the students to plant more and more trees in order to make the surroundings green. Our students planted few tree nearby our center.
Mr Nitin kumar, owner of advertising company (Brightwaay-South Delhi), visited the centre along with his HR team member; they checked students designing work and appreciated the same. He was kind enough to offer internship to 9 of our students in his company, with a good stipend amount to be paid to each student. After completing one month internship successfully, 6 students got the opportunity to work with Brightwaay, as a designing executive.
Confidence building workshop with “Text 100”
For holistic development of students, we have continuously worked to find external experts from the relevant industry. Text 100 is working as a global integrated communications agency, which connected with IT program 2 Months ago. 4 Volunteers took weekly sessions to polish our student’s communication skills & help them to build their confidence in order to ensure a bright career for them..

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.
