Summary

Udayan Ghar-Sunshine Homes were initiated to make sure that the children who are abandoned or orphaned, do not remain 'nobody's children'.We believe that a loving family and home is a rightful privilege of every child. Udayan Ghar was set up in a model of Living In Family Environment where erstwhile abandoned and orphaned children are nurtured by a group of mentor mothers who voluntarily commit themselves to groom the children like their own. Since 1996, we have nurtured 352 children in 13 homes

Challenge

31 million children in India are orphaned and the conditions of institutions housing them are nothing short of appalling.They lack facilities like hygiene and living condition,children are denied of any emotional support, care and nurture.To ensure their right to live their childhood in a family-like environment, their right to education,food and best of everything,few like-minded individuals came together in 1996 to give shape to their dream. Presently,198 children have 13 Homes of their own.

Solution

We ensure foster care where orphaned and abandoned children get a home that incorporates foster family and institutions. Mentors voluntarily nurture these children for a self reliant life. Our mental health programme ensures children to overcome their traumatized pasts. Each home consists of 12-15 children, located in middle-class neighborhoods, where the community takes ownership of them; they can re-integrate themselves into society. Children receive education in best educational institutions.

Long-Term Impact

From 1 Udayan Ghar with 3 children in 1996, to 13 Ghars, home to 352 children in Delhi and other 3 states of India, from 1 life-long Mentor to 33 Mentor Parents; opening the doors of 1 school to admit our children to more than 37 schools,all our Ghars are being managed by civil society members with guidance of Udayan Care, leading to complete educational and economic transformation of disadvantaged children.Our mission is to set and sustain 29 Udayan Ghars, to reach out to 500 children for care.
