I got the opportunity to work with Udayan Care while working as a part of 'Orange' Corporate Social Responsibility team. From day one, Udayan care and the team of Dr Kiran Modi left a very positive response. They were well prepared for the meeting and were clear on what help they were looking for. It made the job of 'engaging' with Udayan Care lot more easier. With passage of time we learnt more about Udayan and its team of volunteers. What was most encouraging was the fact that many of the old Udayan children have grown up and decided to vounteer their services for the benefit of other Udayan kids. This inspite of the fact that they had more lucrative opportunities awaiting in the Corporate world. This and many other such tid-bits assured the Orange CSR team that we have the right fit in 'Udayan' as our NGO partner. Our the last two years we have done different activities with Udayan including setting up kiosks, inviting the kids to join our organization 'birthday clebrations'. And every time we have been overwhelmed with the capabilities of the kids. And Udayan Care is doing such a great job of nurturing their talent. By providing a safe shelter and the right environment to grow.

The Great!

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

nurturing the kids talent, providing them a homely enviroment in the 'Udayan Care' shelter homes.

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

The innocence and warmth of the kids.

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

truly amazing, committed and professional

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

open more shelter homes in remote villages across India. It will help thousands of many more disadvantaged children who spend their 'childhood' being exploited for the 'narrow minded' gains of few people.

I have been volunteering with Udayan Care for more than five years now. UC is among the most well run and transparent NGOs that I know of. The ties that we develop with fellow-volunteers, the children and team members are life long bonds and the involvement of each person makes the organization even more special. I would really like to mention the Founder, Dr. Kiran Modi who is super dedicated to the cause and does not leave any stone unturned in making the life of the children comfortable. Many of the children are now young adults and it is most satisfying to see them getting jobs and leading independent lives.

Udyancare is synonymous to committment.During my stay over there I got to meet mentor parents and interact with them.It was great to see their allegiance with the organisation's vision.The dedication of volunteers Swasthi,Geeti bora and the driving factor Mrs Bedi gives it a great future.Regular meetings with children parents and promotional events organised make it a healthy NGO. Though the staff is committed but a lot of work needs to be done on the front of resource generation and its effective management.A sound planning and execution is must for any organisation's success.

Ways to make it better...

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

Certainly like to see a marketing department and a fixed source of income .

I visited Udayan Care as a volunteer, girls centre near Chattarpur-Delhi, almost a couple of years ago. I found the organisation to be v professionally managed. There was a counsellor, and a staff taking care of girls. I also met mentors. I have every reason to believe that they are trying their level best to provide girls with good education. Udayan Care is a ray of hope for so many disadvantaged girls.

I, as a volunteer for the Teach India initiative of the Times of India group, was lucky to be assigned to work with the Udayan Care, a non profit organization working to provide supportive family environment, opportunities for development of the disadvantaged children and to make a difference in their lives. At Udayan Care, I was asked to teach at Home 6 Boys' Udayan Ghar located at Noida, Uttar Pradesh, India. The Noida Udayan Ghar is a home for 12 boys in the age group of 6 to 12 years. I was requested by the lady incharge, Ms. Anjana Jain, to look after Master Ajay, a student of Class IV. I, besides teaching Ajay, learnt a great deal myself interacting with the children and understanding their aspiration to stand on their own feet and contribute back to the society. Udayan Care is doing a yeoman service in the lives of these disadvantaged children by providing them not only safe, secure and healthy environment but also helping them to grow and develop to be the confident citzens of tomorrow.

I am an employee of CSC and CSC has a programme CMP, where volunteer employees meet and guide children from NGOs. I have been involved with CMP for about 2 years. I have also been to their Sant Nagar home once. It has been a great learning experience. I liked the fact that they all call it "home" and consider it so ... forgetting the past that some of them might have gone through. They are a group of happy kids... studying, learning and having fun :)

Udayan Care is an NGO where everyone is passsionate about 'Doing something more' for the underpriviledged children & women. Led by a dedicated and driven Mrs Kiran Modi, the NGO truly surpasses boundaries by constantly focussing on innovative internal process improvements and growth. I am extremely impressed with the ethics and the culture of the organisation and feel proud to be associated with Udayan care.

The Great!

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

providing quality boarding, education and other facilities to the underpriviledged chilren. I have personally met the children who have passed out of school and because of Udayan are now able to sustain themselves and their families.

More feedback...

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

No overwhelming desire by anyone to publise the work unnecessarily. Employees & volunteers seem to be working with the only objective of providing service to the needy

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

Individuals with drive and desire of doing something for the under priviledged. These people invest their personal time and resources without bothering about recognition or publicity.

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

Open more homes and help more children. There are many who need help and need an Udayan Ghar. These children if not helped today would waste their life (and of others) by becoming criminals tomorrow.

We always hear that a good company is made by good leaders and this completely applies with Udayan Care with Dr. Kiran Modi being on board running the show successfully. She is a kind of person who doesn't treat NGO's as money making organization and truly feels the pain of others. She has done a remarkable job in making Udayan Care where it is today. My best wishes to Udayan Care to grow more and more and achieve the mission of helping the underprivileged. Thanks Sachin Mary Kay 9999237867

I spent 5 weeks staying at Udayan Care's Girls Home in Noida, and it was an incredible experience. The home was brand new, only having been up and running for a couple of months when I arrived, and the staff both in the home and the head office did everything possible to help the three girls living there at the time adjust to their new surroundings. The girls had excellent caretakers in the home who provided great meals and a good nurturing environment, and the supporting staff from the head office came by often to offer additional support to the children. My role was to provide help to the children with their studies, to organize various events and craft projects to do with the girls as a means to exercise creativity and have some fun, and to construct a training manual for future volunteers! It was WONDERFUL. One of the best times of my life. Everyone working there was extremely thoughtful, passionate and dedicated to improving the life of the girls living within the home. I highly recommend this experience to anyone who wants to get involved with a non-profit who is dedicated to improving the lives of children. WONDERFUL!

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

the interaction with the girls within the home. By living with them, and interacting with them on a daily basis, I really felt like we were working together to achieve the end goal of learning, having fun and studying hard.

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

Kiran Modi is an incredible individual who runs this organization with a lot of passion and dedication. Anjana, the "mother" in the region was extremely helpful and guided my role over the 5 weeks I spent there.

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

offer more and more homes to children who really need it.

Ways to make it better...

The only thing I can think of was that I was not prepared at the lack of communicated between the caretakers and the volunteers. At first it was a little difficult because the caregivers did not speak much english, but I started giving them lessons

I spent two weeks volunteering at Sant Nagar Udayan Ghar Girls Home back in March 2009, it was the most wonderful experience and something that I keep close to me everyday. I have since been back a number of times and my next trip to see the girls will be in November. I cannot praise the committment that each staff member has to the children and the amount of effor that everyone puts into the daily lives of the girls.
