My three month time at the Udayan Care Greater Noida home was one of the greatest and most challenging times of my life. I taught English to the younger girls at the Greater Noida home in the morning and helped the older girls with their homework in the afternoon. I had never had teaching experience, so I was faced with a challenging task. I didn't know where to start or what exactly to do when I was given a class of girls to teach English to. I think I could have been given a bit more guidance in exactly what to do, but I eventually did figure it out. However, I feel time would have been saved if there had been a clear idea of what was expected. Although the girls tested my patience throughout, I fell in love with all of them and have missed them since I left. Seeing the happiness on their faces when they went to events instantly made anyone around them feel their joy as well. The events organized by Udayan Care are great. They allow all the children a time to come together and have fun. They have I don't know if things have changed, but one thing I did notice was how the girls in Greater Noida were not always included in some of the events, I think due to their distance from Delhi. Writing this comment about my experience with Udayan Care makes me immediately want to go back to India. I hope with writing this, I become more involved with Udayan Care because it is truly an amazing organization.

The Great!

I volunteered with Udayan care in the year of 2007 for a month and a half and even till today, still speak highly of the amazing experience i had. I volunteered with the home in the Noida area, in the boys home. I was welcomed with open arms from my first step at the airport until my departure. The boys home in Noida has now become my second family almost, and i still keep in contact with the mother and father at that home, Rita and Birender. The love and utmost care for these children can be sensed without even speaking a word. Kiran Modi and and her entire organization are such dedicated and passionate people. I wish them all the best in their future endeavors.

I volunteered for a month for Udayan Care in February 2006. It was a life changing experience I will never forget, and am excited to be able to come back and volunteer again in the near future. I can't say enough about the care, concern and professionalism of this organization. I have volunteered in other orphanages and homes in other countries and in no way could they compare to how well run all the homes within Udayan Care are. In fact, I was spoiled by the outstanding care and passion the staff (and Kiran Modi) portray. I went to other orphanages around the world expecting the same standard of care and concern, and didn't find it. Not only do they hold the utter most concern for the children in their care, but are also fiercely protective of their volunteers are well, and also have their best interests at heart. ple who make up Udayan Care are.

I am on the advisory board of an organization here in the US called Home of hope inc. I was in charge of overseeing our contribution to Udayan Care and I have to say that I have not seen a more dedicated passionate person than Dr. Kiran Modi. She started and has now nurtured with the help of q committed staff, an organization which has single handidly taken care of hungreds of children who otherwise would have been on the street. Udayan care has set a worthy example of how to nurture vulnerable citizens of our community into healthy loved and caring and self sustaining individuals!

I have been a volunteer at MG road Shelter Home. I am so impressed with the special attention that the mentor mothers give to these homes. The organization is doing a great job in giving the children a prosperous career ahead. Some of the students are studying at best schools in Delhi like Sanskriti, and availing the best facilities. The NGO recognizes the potential of every child and gives them a fair chance to hone their skills, and identify their strengths. Kids interact with confidence and their communication skills are comparable to the best of their age. I wish them all the best in their endeavor.

I have been associated with Udayan Care since May 2007 and it's been a real learning experience for me. I visited Ms Kiran Modi maa'm my friend Dr. Savleen as volunteers. We started visiting Sant Nagar home in New Delhi. Interaction with children, with mentor mother and other volunteer all has been a real enriching for me. These small children make you learn (relearn) so many things about your life that you have forgotten. I was acting as teacher of Nancy - a class IX girl and she is just faboulous and teaches me more about myself, my weaknesses and my behaviour. Other children like Rekha, Kiran and Mamta are also very good. The organisation takes care of children in a very structure way. Homes have all the facilities that any child can aspire for. All children have assigned duties so that they can feel responsible. In a country like India, when we can see thousands of orphans roaming around on roads, this organisation is a small but very right step in right direction. Thanks for allowing me to be part of this family.

Something which cannot be expressed in words. It was a mind blowing and a very fulfilling experience. The warmth, the connection and the welcome I received from the little angels was something very moving. The enthusiasm and the pride with which they took me around to their rooms, their play ground, their kitchen and dining hall was something which I cannot write in words. We can learn a lot from these children of lesser God, who are happy, hopeful and contented and live together as a big family. One small step towards them can make you see the gratitude on their faces. I just fell in love with them

I dont think I can suggest any changes in the organization at present. This I am saying because I haved seen the kids blooming in udayan care, I have felt the happiness of the kids in my heart. But yes there is always a scope for improvement

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Simple living and high dreams. Each kid has her own dreams to follow and is hopeful that Udayan care will help them in realizing their dreams and they will make it big some day

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Amazingly friendly and warm people. Brigadier Narang is a gem of a person. Always there for the kids. Kids just love him

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

reach out to a wider community. Have more kids under their shelter and protection. Could also pullout the unfortunate kids from forced child labour and prostitution which is rampant all over the country.

Ways to make it better...

No I cannot comment on this.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Frankly speaking , I did not see the challenge in dayan Ghar. May be fund raising could be an issue.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Raise awareness on Udayan Ghar. Ask rich to come forward for this noble cause. Ask high and mighty to contribuite in this endeavour. Have more kids under shelter.

My name is Wenka and i'm from Holland. I had the honour to be the first foreign Volunteer, in the first year of Udayan Care's existence. I have worked with Dr Kiran Modi for 6 months and to me it was a life changing experience. The dedication not only she but her whole family and support group has shown is amazing. Not succeeding in het mission of creating a home, a family and a future for the children of Udayan Care was never an option. I was there in the first girls home and i am so proud to see what the organisation Udayan Care has achieved and created up until now. There is no doubt in my mind that Dr Kiran Modi herself and Udayan Care have made a difference not only for the children but for India as a country. To quote a famous saying: "Whoever saves one life, saves the world entire"

I was aware of ‘Udayan Care’ only four years ago by an accidental meet with Dr. Kiran Modi who is the Managing Trustee. Her personality and her commitment to the cause were evident to me from my first meeting. I voluntarily got involved with the activities of ‘Udayan Care’ and I learned more and gradually I discovered how emotionally the children of their homes were cared and the mentoring that was provided to the Shalini Fellowship girls which was far more than just extending financial support. Because of this I got emotionally involved and started participating in their events and assisting ‘Udayan Care’ in whatever little way I could on a regular basis. It was sheer delight to see some of the children who were grown in these houses and how they have emerged as self confident with aspiration and waiting to perform their role in the society. When these children and Shalini Fellowship girls address Dr. Kiran Modi as ‘Kiran Bhua’ one has to see their emotion and experience how they feel about it.
