I volunteered in for Udayan Care in the Ghaziabad Home for Girls for the third time.
I stayed for 3 weeks.

Again I had a beautiful and exiting stay.

My most beautiful memories are mostly small moments, the girls sharing thoughts or feelings, calm moments which each of the
girls, when they forget their thoughts and fights and just want to sit a bit and talk or ask me to sing a song or to tell a story...

Staying full-time in the Home gives the possibility to be very close to the children and to the life in a Home. You get a near impression of the life in the home and you share a lot with the children. But it also can be stressful and makes one feel tired sometimes when there is no possibility to take distance for some time.
It makes it a very intensive experience and every home is individual with its own atmosphere, characters...

The time in Ghaziabad, I think also for other volunteers in different homes, is full of extremes, but in the end there is this feeling of looking back to an intensive time of love and joy.
That’s why I am looking forward the next time and say thank you to Udayan Care, for everything you give to the children!

I was at the Ghaziabad Home for girls for the second time in march and last week for 6 days. The experiences I made last week were different as it took not much time to acclimatize. It was a week full of joy as the children had holidays and we could do a lot of fun things. We painted, danced and even went to the mall together with the menthor mother. I could see some developments of the girls, for example their english-skills improve, their looks change and also the topics of interest. Every day in the home is different, full of surprises. After a `crisis´ like a big dispute or chaotic and unmotivated study-time, there is always an even bigger high and beautiful experience. I promised that I´ll come back as soon as possible, so I have to do that ... :)

I had a great time with Udayan Care in the Ghaziabad Home for girls. Sharing the every-day-life, we had much fun. Even if I don't speak hindi and they didn't speak much english that time, we were laughing a lot. Of course not everything is always easy but all in all they showed more love then I ever could imagine before. I decided some weeks ago to visit the home again, to share some more time with the girls...

I had volunteered for Udayan Care as part of our institution's Social Awareness programme. The whole exercise was very enriching in terms of how we understood the intricacies of the working of an NGO, and the efforts put in by Udayan Care in their areas of cause are extremely commendable.

The project guides were helpful and encouraged us to go beyond our mandate and come up with innovative solutions as well.

I would be looking forward to another opportunity of working with them.

I have spend my last five month volunteering at Udayan Care. In the morning I worked in the head office and in the afternoon I visited one of the homes where I mainly helped the children in there daily life and in there studies.
It was an amazing experience which influenced me in a very
positive way, I worked together with such lovely people and the work with the children was so much fun. I really was involved in the projects I was working on and was able to give a lot of my own impact to it.
It was an impressive time and I am really looking forward to come back.

I am an educated teacher from Denmark who are spending 4 months with Udayan Care here in New Delhi. From 10am-2pm I am working at their Head Office doing very exciting work for the organization and from 2.30-6pm I am staying at the Sant Nagar home for girls. I am not living in the home, but I am enjoying all the time I spend with the girls. We put up a Gymnastics show on the big event of "Gift a Smile" held in the Greater Noida home in October. We are playing math games, speaking danish/hindi, doing their homework and practising more gymnastics and some short dances. I have already been here in India for 1½ month, so the time is flying. Hopefully I will find the time to come back since being with Udayan Care and with these girls definitely have changed my way of living :)

I volunteered with Udayan in the summer of 2010. I worked with 2 other foreign volunteers at the Chatturpur home in New Delhi for 6 weeks. We lived there and spent a lot of time with the girls in that home. It was an amazing experience and I think of those little girls every day. I can't wait to find the time to go back again and see them!

I just returned from India where I worked with Udayan Care. I lived and worked at one of the orphanages for girls in Delhi. This was one of the newer homes they have opened. There were 12 girls aged 5 1/2-14 yrs old. I was placed with Udayan through a volunteer vacation company and I am grateful for the experience. After a rocky start with the girls I left with a heavy heart! We helped the girls learn english and helped with math. This is a well run organization...they care about the volunteers and our experiences as well as taking great care that the kids are well taken care of on a daily basis. I plan on doing whatever I can from home to help raise awareness about this great non-profit!!

I spent two months volunteering with Udayan Care in Jaipur and had such a great experience.I truly enjoyed being there and spending time with the children. This was the experience that I was looking for. I lived at the home with the children and got to spend 2 months giving my undivided attention to deserving children. Every day I was amazed by these children. 
 The organization itself is great, I could tell that the children are well taken care of and cared for. There was a good balance of discipline, studying time, playing time and extra curricular activities . There is no doubt that these children are being given all the tools they need to become successful individuals. This was also my first time in India and I felt very supported by the staff at the home. They made me feel welcome and always made sure I had anything I needed. 
I am so happy I got to be a part of these children's lives and I will definitely be back to see them. I strongly recommend Udayan Care for anyone looking to volunteer. I really felt that my time here was meaningful and will have a great impact on the children and on myself.

I have joined Udayan Care for 3 weeks and, even if it was a short period, it was a challenging and instructive experience. I have worked at the Head Office and I dealt with the creation of long-term partnerships with the principal foreign Universities aiming at receiving International students as volunteers or interns at Udayan Care.
The working environment was really nice and cooperative. The volunteer department supported me, but at the same time they demonstrated to trust me by allowing me to work independently and to take responsibilities.
I discovered a keen interest in networking and public relations tasks.
It is a NGO that is working in an effective and transparent way, making a great impact on the life of the children, women and youth involved in its programmes!

Hey there, my name is Sabrina I am 20 years old and I stayed in India working with Udayan Care for 2 month. I worked as a volunteer in one of Udayan Care children homes. I Was situated in greater Noida in the biggest home of Udayan Care. There are living 40 girl in the Age of 6-23. I first had to get acquainted to the girls, their daily life and how I could place my role in that daily life. I helped the girls with the food, managing school stuff, getting ready and started for school, solving homework problems and after school stuff was finished I tried to do and plan some freetime acitivity as we would do in my home country, Germany. Therefore it is good if you, as a volunteer have some special skills or hobbies you could share with the girls as they are really happy for everything you share with them for example pictures of your family, stories about school life in Germany etc. Also the communication and contact with the organization which has its main office in Delhi, was very good. We joined the volunteers meeting every month and if there where any problems, the email contact was fast and constant. All in all I really enjoyed working with the organization, what I really love about them is that they really put the main aspect on the education of the children and that they, later on, can stand on their own feed and look into a wonderful future as independet persons. I would definitely work again with Udayan Care and I can just recommend it.

I was involved with Udayan Care for one year. In this time I made lots of new, important and good experiences. I built a relationship with the girls of one of the homes, which is hard to break now. I never had the feeling, that Udayan Care would hide anything from me and this transparency made it so interesting for me, to get more inside of the NGO life. I think it is definitely a good institution for beginners as well as professionals to get to know more about the way of working of an NGO. Sometimes I felt myself being on my own a little bit, but I guess that made it more instructive in the end.
