I have had tremendous experiences with Udayan Care. Living and working in one of the ghars for the past two summers, I have seen firsthand what an amazing organization it is. I have continued to work with them because I have been so impressed by the quality of care that they give their children. Consistent with their mission, each child that goes through any of their programs gets all of the advantages and care that the members of the organization would give to their own children. They give the children, who have come from some of the most dire situations possible, every advantage that they can and make sure that all of their needs, from psychological to physical to emotional, are met. I have seen first hand what amazing children this program helps, and the girls at the Jag Shanti Udayan Care ghar have come to mean a lot to me. They are some of the most extraordinary people in the world. They have taught me so much and greatly enriched my life. They deserve the best, and from Udayan Care, that's what they get.

The Great!

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

living and working with the children. They are some of the happiest, most optimistic, bravest, most mature, and most loving people I have ever met in my life. I have seen how Udayan Care has helped them become the people they are.

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

I can't say it enough, but the children. They are more amazing than I ever could have imagined or could explain here. Seeing them grow and learn and becoming part of their lives has been the most profound experience of my life.

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

All fantastic. Driven by real love for the children. They all want what's best for them.

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

Help more children! And their lives and the lives of everyone that met them would be enriched beyond measure. Udayan Care does the best work of any organization I have ever seen, and I have seen a lot all over the world.

I was one of beneficiaries at Udayan Care from 2002 to 2006, I think I am the one, who has spent the shortest time in Udayan care and have gained the maximum in her life. One thing which I have learnt from Udayan Care and importantly from Dr. Kiran Modi, the founder and hopes for many children, that nothing is impossible in life , if your motive is simply helping the needy one. “Sounds simple but becomes difficult when someone practices”. Kiran aunty is the woman who taught me to say “thank” you when I receive any help and “excuse me” to the people who thinks I am alone. I came in Udayan care when I was almost 19 years of my age, considered as a very dangerous age, if you are a girl and alone in a developing country like India, and that time there was no provision for keeping adult girls in Udayan Care, despite of little opposition from board members Kiran aunty took the decision of keeping me. In my opinion that decision was the hardest decision, keeping an adult girl with the toddlers is not a good idea and very difficult to manage, but she did it through right counseling and having trust on me. I will not deny the fact that I was not hurt by my past, but the past became past, that very day when, Kiran aunty took the decision of keeping me in Udayan Care. My journey of hard work began since then. However now, when I compare myself with others, I see more confidence in me and the thrust of doing something different in life. I did my Bachelors from correspondence mode, while I was in Jagshanti home (Udayan Care) under the wonderful guidance of Brigadier Narang (Managing Director) who is a tough man with strong motivation skills. However, after leaving Udayan Care, I started asking myself the real motive of my life, then I realized, I always wanted to be like Kiran aunty and which is only possible through education, and luckily I got admission in top most University of Malaysia, now I am in verge of finishing my M.phill in Strategic studies, I have a dream of doing PhD. However, after achieving my set goal and if I have the ability to make difference in people’s life I want to do that. I know I can never become like Kiran aunty who, is simply an angle. But I am sure my dream of becoming something little more than, what I was when I came in Udayan care will surely make her happy. I don’t know whether many of us in Udayan Ghar have realized or not, or whether they share the same aspiration as I do. Before coming to Kiran aunty, our live were like blank notebooks, she filled the dates and gave us the reasons to celebrate every achievement of ours, be it small or big and made us love ourselves and taught us to be happy and make others happy. Thank you for making our lives readable to ourselves. May god give you strength and energy to fill as many as blank notebooks with the virtue of your kind appearance and love, which is hard to describe in words and I mean it!!!

I've had the pleasure of volunteering with Udayan Care and getting to know the wonderful children. My memories of the time spent there are filled with joy and warmth that I received from all the members of the Udayan Community. It's an experience that I will always keep close to my heart and look forward to sharing more precious moments with Udayan Family in the future.

Ever since I first met with Udayan Care people, I have felt so much love and passion for what they are doing. Dr. Kiran Modi is an eternal sunshine that glows a special energy and passes that to everyone who gets involved. It has been a wonderful time for me to stay and volunteer at Udayan Care, visit and stay at the ghars and spend some unforgettable moments with the smiling girls I had the chance to get to know. I always love to come back!

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.

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.
