Udayan Ghar Programme 

Udayan Care had set up its first Udayan Ghar (Home) for children in 1996 and created its own model of LIFE: Living in Family Environment. This model enables erstwhile children in need of Care & Protection in to grow in a loving family environment. In these homes, the children are loved and cared for by a group of Mentor Parents-socially committed individuals (volunteers) who groom the children with a team of Coordinators at homes, along with resident Care Givers, Supervisors, & Volunteers.

These homes are located in busy, middle class neighborhoods, so children can reintegrate themselves into society through direct community involvement which helps mainstreaming the children ahead. Our children and young adults are receiving quality education in some of the best educational institutions such as: The Sagar School at Tijara, Alwar, Mata Bhagwati school, Genesis Global school, Tagore International School, East of Kailash, Banyan Tree School, Global Indian International School etc and colleges/ universities like College of Vocational Studies, University of Delhi, Hi- Tech Institute of Engineering, Ghaziabad, Punjab University, Lingaya’s University etc. 

Since inception, Udayan Ghars have nurtured over 990 children with love, care and protection in 14 Homes across 4 states of India. Presently, there are 186 children across all homes. 28 of our young adults are also being supported through our After Care Programme.

 

Workshops/ Activities during this Quarter

During the period of September - November, 2018, the team continued working for the betterment of children and the programme. The quarter went well with children engaged in preparing for their mid-term examination. Workshops being a monthly affair addressed several concerns pertaining to Children, Care-givers, Mentor Parents and Coordinators and also served for building their capacity.

Workshops were held with all the programme stakeholders (mentors, coordinators, caregivers, and children). In order to strengthen the stakeholders the following workshops were held during the quarter:

   September

  • Workshop on “Dealing with Depression and Anxiety” with Children
  • Workshop on “Child Sexual Abuse & POCSO Act, 2012” with Caregivers and Supervisors.
  • Discussion on “Confidentiality” with Mentor Parents and Coordinators

  October

  • Workshop on “Understanding Inspections at Udayan Ghars” with children.
  • Workshop on “FAIRSTART Training (Phase III), Session I” with Caregivers and Supervisors.
  • Interactive Session on “Unpacking Deinstitutionalization in the Context of Udayan Ghars” with Mentor Parents and Coordinators.

  November

  • Workshop on “Moral Values” with children
  • Workshop on “Care Giving, FAIRSTART Training (Phase III), Session II” with Caregivers and Supervisors.Workshop on “Ghar Expense Analysis” with Mentor Parents and Coordinators.

Children don't naturally know how to make good choices. Life skills help children know what to do in everyday situations as well as how to make good decisions about more abstract, long-term choices. Since, in a constantly changing environment, having life skills is an essential part of being able to meet the challenges of everyday life, Life Skill workshops at home were also held like every other quarter which focused on various subjects like self awareness & self identity, coping with emotions, relationship building, healthy & unhealthy relationships, knowing self, decision making, stress management, healthy habits; family & community, communication and problem solving.

Opportunities, events and outings are some of the things that never end for our Udayan Ghar children. The major recreational and co-curricular events that took place during the quarter include –

Teacher’s Day Celebration

The first happiness of a child is to know that he is loved. – Bosco
Every year November 14 gives us an opportunity to look back at our childhood, get our heart filled with all the nostalgic experiences and also enrich the lives of the young ones around us. The day is recognised and celebrated as Children’s Day.

Success Story (any one)- 

“The love of the family is life’s greatest blessing”

For 9 long years, Ali was deprived of this blessing! Having lost his way when he was 6 years old, Ali was unable to furnish details of his family before the police. It was then; the CWC decided and placed him in a CCI in Gurugram, where he lived for 8 years before finally being placed to Udayan Care in early 2017. 

On a trip to an amusement park, he mentioned to our Udayan Ghar coordinator that he was familiar with the places en route. This triggered the quest to find Ali’s family, which after persistent efforts met success.

We applaud our team’s continuous and untiring efforts in reuniting a family and hope the best for Hasan, who has now returned to his family.
