I had approached Udyan Care for adoption of a Kid. But was told that they do not give kids for adoption but we can help the kids by funding for their education and food. They are providing a very healthy environment for the ophaned kids who are in different age groups.Our experience in Udyan Care was very enriching the staff was very caring towards the children which satisfied us and many other like us who thought that the organisation was working hard to make the lives of these children very fulfilling.
I have been associated with Udayan Care UC since its inception. In last 15 years the way UC has evolved is truely amazing!There was a time when UC had choose between more no. of children to be taken care of , or, have less children but provide them good education and better standard of life, it chose the latter. Today UC can cerainly take credit of making the beneficiaries better and productive citizens of the country.
i got to know Udayan Care through a friend of mine. what struck me most about Udayan Care was the passion and commitment of its, relatively small staff, who were able to move mountains for the women and children who found a home with them. personally, love, guidance and time the staff and the volunteers shower on the children was an eye-opener. at udayan care it isn't about a hand out but a hand up from the earliest stages...these children are taught the righ value systems and are given the resources that will make them independent, self reliant and contributing members of society. i was glad that my daughter had the opportunity to volunteer at and spend time in udayan care meeting and interacting with the kids. it's nonprofit organization with a big heart!
Having worked for almost 10 years in developmental sector, I sincerely hope that Udyan Care has actually set the ethics of developmental work by adopting disadvantaged children and doing some concrete work. The most satisfying aspect is the high quality of care which a child gets in these adoption homes. ( I have visited one of the homes) My only concern is that as the number of disadvantaged children are increasing day by day and quality adoption homes are very few, it has to be seen that in the coming days what strategy Udyan Care adopts to reach the vast population of disadvantaged children and bring smile on their faces.
Udayan Care - is an organisation with a true difference. It doesnot run orphanages but homes for disadvantaged children. There is no doubt that any person can take the place or let alone claim to take the place/ duties/ love of a parent, but in my opinion UC is very near to it. The amount of love, personal attention, care..... is given to all the children by each and every member of this family is amazing. I have seen UC grown over so many years to its present level, which has been possible because of the continuous support and confidence given by our society. It brings joy to my heart seeing all these kids shape up so well, you got to see them to believe it. The amount of confidence that is bestowed in each child is amazing, the kind of skills they are able to show on stage, i am myself get jittery.
I have been a beneficiary of the Udayan Sahlini Fellowship (USF). I was inducted in the third batch of the USF when I was in higher secondary( class 11th CBSE Delhi) since then Udayan Care family has been a sourse of constant support and motivation for me. This year only i have graduated from the program after successfully completing my five year with them and graduating from MIRANDA HOUSE university of Delhi. Now i have joined at India's one of the premier research institute for my higher studies.the five years that i have spent with udayan care has been great in all dimensions. its all their support and motivation. Udayan shalini fellowship changed my life completely. from a government school girl to being a part of India's most prestigious research institution. its all coz of udayan shalini fellowship. i couldn't have moved a step forward without their help. the constant motivation in form of regular three monthly workshops boosted up my self confidence and gave me the vision to dream high and work hard in order to achieve my goals. towards the last two years of my stay with them they appointed me as mentor didi. it helped me to look towards world in a different way by mentoring school girls younger to me. our programme coordinator Mr Sajan Mathew and Mr Faheem Khan has always been a good listeners and a ray of hope and great counsellors in our blue moments. being fellows we were encouraged to be involved in social work, which was a necessary part of the programme. this helped us to understand our social responsibilities and work for a better tomorrow with greater hope. social campaigns were really fun that increased our knowledge about certain social problems and issues and gave us a better insight into the lives of those less privileged then us. in all i have learnt a lot being with them and evolved as a better and more confident human being in all spheres of life.I am really thankful to Mr Vikram Dutt, Mr Sajan and Udayan Shalini fellowships for the wonderful opportunity that they brought in for me through this beautiful programme. I am blessed to have been a beneficiary of this programme as this has shaped many of my thoughts and shaped my future. I am always thankful to them for being a guide and a friend.
It is a treat to meet members,volunteers and specially mentor mothers of UC.They are such a committed bunch who are ready to compromise even their mental peace to raise the girls of Udayan Ghars.
This is a unique organisation which has become very strong because of their volunteers and members. The transparency in Udayan Care is TOTAL. UC is becoming instrumental in making its beneficiaries productive and positive citizens of our country.
