I can just say I loved it - staying with the grils at Jagshanti Udayan Care was precious time after a long journey through India - a country of diversity!

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

that you could feel the difference.

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

pretty awesome.

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

turn India into a better home for so many boys and girls now still having to struggle, plus they would achieve education.

Ways to make it better...

I could have stayed longer.

I spent a month volunteering at Udayan Care during the summer of 2008. Being a high school student from the U.S., I was really surprised with what I saw at Udayan Care. The staff is a surrogate family for the girls and you can clearly see the genuine feeling of love they have for each other. Udayan Care is doing a great thing by giving girls a chance to receive a great education that they would not have received otherwise. Instead of just throwing money at the problem, the people at Udayan Care give the girls the basic tools they need to succeed later on in life. Keep up the good work!

Living in the western world, believing that most of my achievements were reached, changed the day, I became a part of the Udayan Care family. Udayan Care creates as a NGO, hope and futures for children, by focusing on individual goals. Each child gets a second chance in life, and that fact, combined with presents and love from the involved, good hearted and responsible staff, makes it impossible to put down in words, what Udayan Care represents. It is something big, something beautiful, something you got to be a part of to understand. As a volunteer, I have realized that no matter where you live in this world, and how privileged you are, we all have the same basic needs in life. Needs you cant fill up with money only. Udayan Care fills up thir children with pure love, that is making a difference in 2009, I think. Thank you so much all of you.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

groving as a human being. Making a difference to 42 loveable girls.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make sure that the greater Noida home, Jagshanti, had more attention from mentor mothers and staff. And to give the uneducated staff, care givers ect. better conditions, they are doing the hard work.

More feedback...

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

that if you are qualified, they will give you responsibility, and that way you can have a big influence on, what is going on in the organization. They are openminded to new ideas.

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

The staff are very involved, and very focused on doing a good job. Some of the volunteers I think are too young, you need some kind of strength and life experience to take care of others.

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

Create even better conditions for the children, wich they are carrying under their wings. Develop their staffs knowledge by education. Focusing on quality and not quantity.

Ways to make it better...

I have had my own room during the stay, I really needed to save up some energy, because being involved takes a lot.

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

setteling down, because they dont have guidelines for rutines and rules.

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

rebember that getting documentation from the volunteers, according to what kind of activities they are doing with the kids, is not what makes a difference. It is the time, that you can not document, the time when a child needs a hug, and YOU are there.

I am not much of a writer but I am writing here because I feel strongly for Udayan and the cause it stands for and the true efforts being made here to provide the underpriviliged kids a bright new tomorrow. I have been associated with Udayan for more than a year now and it has been a very fulfilling and wonderful journey. I have been to Udayan Homes in Noida and Gurgaon and interacted with the little angels there and appreciate the overall effort being made to by one and all at Udayan to make sure the little ones have a bright and secure tomorrow. As an organization I appreciate the culture of Udayan which I find is very open, transparent and the Udayan team always open for new ideas and avenues which can help / assist the organisation. Udayan welcomes one and all with arms wide open who feel for the cause and want to make a difference no matter how big or small. I wish them all the luck - now and forever.

I had a wonderful experience with the girls at the home in Noida. As a future elementary school teacher, I learned so many different things from the girls. They taught me patience, understanding and appreciation for another culture, and made me realize that teaching is truly what I want to do in life. One difficult thing for me with my experience was not being able to bring as much creativity to the girls as I would have liked. The education system in India is very different than the United States and I found it hard sometimes to adjust. I also found that I could not find a way to communicate with some of the higher up people that came to our home because of our differences. I feel like I didn't understand exactly their point of view and they did not take time to understand mine. I do, however, realize that I was in their home; not the other way around. Overall, it was a fantastic experience and I think about the girls very often.

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

generally very nice and welcoming. However, the mentor mother and father assigned to the home was rude, inconsiderate, and very closed off to what my ideas, thoughts, and other planning.

Ways to make it better...

I would have been able to spend more time with the girls on creative projects and just having fun rather than such an intense focus on memorizing facts.

I first came to udayan care in the March of 2008 to volunteer for their Noida Boys centre and I was amazed with the kind of facilities, love and affection that was given to the kids there. The staff over here treated every one as an extended family, and they have that culture too..everyone's name ends with udayan. Also, Kiran Mam the managing trustee encouraged me to take the initiative so I also started the social media campaign of the NGO..starting from the blog to twitter. It has really been my utmost pleasure to be associated with the organisation and I hope this association continues forever.

Being associated with Udayan has been an enriching experience. The spirit of the organization gets reflected in the positive attitude of the children under their care. The efforts being made by the organization to secure the children’s basic rights to food, shelter, emotional warmth and education are commendable. The happy faces that I get to see there every time I visit,speak highly of the support system being provided to the children. I wish all the children good luck and appreciate the great job that the people at Udayan are doing!
