  • About our Sunshine Homes

With your constant support these SunShine Homes have nurtured over 406 children with love and protection in 13 Homes across Delhi, NCR, Kurukshetra and Jaipur. Presently, there are 196 children across all homes. Every moment these little kids make us feel like proud parents; sharing with you all one of those proud moments below.

Abha (Name Changed) came to Udayan Care when she was only 9 years. She had been handed over to Udayan Care by Palna (Delhi Council for Child Welfare) by the orders of Child Welfare Committee, Kingsway Camp, Delhi for long-term care, support, rehabilitation and better education. As per the records available with Palna, Neetu was declared an abandoned child.

Being a child with Low I.Q. level, she wasn’t stretched much towards academics rather facilitated to learn stitching and tailoring. She also showed interest in managing house independently. Keeping her this interest in mind, we provided her an opportunity in Kids Kingdom play school to learn skills and to earn money.

Just like any other girl she too desired to get settled through marriage, fortunately we found a nice match for her and got happily married on 3rd November 2014. The ceremony took place in the home at Greater Noida, where she grew up.

Presently, she has adjusted well in her new family life, performing her roles very well. She is also participating in taking care of the family business and facilitating the business in her leisure time.

Parul (Name changed) was born in Kolkata. After losing her father at a very young age, Pinky’s mother struggled to take care of her and her sister. Her mother worked in an export warehouse where she barely made enough to support herself. Pinky arrived at Udayan Care, Mehrauli Ghar, through child welfare committee. For three years, she lived together in the Mehrauli home with about a dozen other girls. With active and caring mentor parents, Pinky remembers feeling truly cared for, for the first time.

Udayan Care developed a tie up with a very prestigious private school in Greater NOIDA she was then offered a freeship to attend Delhi Public School School in Greater NOIDA and thus had to move to the Greater Noida home.

Parul has been living independently, since, supporting herself with a good job as a Booking Relations and Senior Executive in a building company. She has become a successful, independent, and driven young woman.  Her early childhood years, however, were neither easy nor pleasant.  She believes that although she has made decisions that she has had to learn hard lessons from, Udayan Care has been a massive opportunity for her, crediting it with where she is today.  By the help and support of her Mentor Parents, Supervisors, Care Givers, Social Workers, and other Udayan Care employees, she feels as though she was given a second chance at life, and is currently making the most of it.

She got married recently to Sumit (Name Changed), on 7th December, 2014, at Bulandshahar, a small town in Uttar Pradesh, about 100 kms away from Greater NOIDA, a place which is ancestral home to her husband’s family.
