I have known Udayan Care for the past 2 years and highly appreciate their outstanding performance and passionate involvement. Their involvement with the kids and their approach to care for their children as well as for the girls of the the Udayan Fellowship is remarkable. Their work is very important and deserves attention and support!

The Great!

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

high performance, dedication and personal involvement, care and great interaction with the kids.

This is one of the few places I saw where the children where treated like ones parents would - and I found that very touching. Most organizations attempt to touch as many children as possible, which is a good thing if the quality of care is not compromised. So, its refreshing to find a place where children are given the best care possible. Its an utopian idea - but would love to see that happen everywhere. Havent been able to spend much time with Udayan as I would like - but that will be fixed with time !

Everything about Udayan Care is very professionaland well organized. But more than that, it is visionary and compassionate. The reports of the children, the activities organized for them and the personal coaching provided for them make it truly exemplary.

I looked hard to find a charitable organization in India that was high trustworthy that I could give to. An associate of mine in India recommended Udayan Care. I also traveled from the U.S. and visited Udayan Care in the summer of 2008. I was impressed to learn how deeply they care for children and women's education. They are a well-balanced organization supporting a variety of programs. They also receive volunteers from all over the world. While there, I met volunteers from the Czech Republic, Scotland, England, and Princeton University in the U.S.

A volunteer from the Czech Republic told me why Kiran Modi founded the organization. Kiran's son was attending a U.S. college when he was killed in a car accident. She found he had taken a second job at a gas station to help struggling friends in India.

I am on the advisory board of an organization here in the US called Home of hope inc. I was in charge of overseeing our contribution to Udayan Care and I have to say that I have not seen a more dedicated passionate person than Dr. Kiran Modi. She started and has now nurtured with the help of q committed staff, an organization which has single handidly taken care of hungreds of children who otherwise would have been on the street. Udayan care has set a worthy example of how to nurture vulnerable citizens of our community into healthy loved and caring and self sustaining individuals!

I was aware of ‘Udayan Care’ only four years ago by an accidental meet with Dr. Kiran Modi who is the Managing Trustee. Her personality and her commitment to the cause were evident to me from my first meeting. I voluntarily got involved with the activities of ‘Udayan Care’ and I learned more and gradually I discovered how emotionally the children of their homes were cared and the mentoring that was provided to the Shalini Fellowship girls which was far more than just extending financial support. Because of this I got emotionally involved and started participating in their events and assisting ‘Udayan Care’ in whatever little way I could on a regular basis. It was sheer delight to see some of the children who were grown in these houses and how they have emerged as self confident with aspiration and waiting to perform their role in the society. When these children and Shalini Fellowship girls address Dr. Kiran Modi as ‘Kiran Bhua’ one has to see their emotion and experience how they feel about it.

i have been associated with udayan care since 2001 and it's been a real pleasure to see the organization grow so well under kiran's passionate leadership. the grassroot level support provided by UC to the children is commendable. the unique 'udayan ghar' and 'mentor mother' model has been successfully proven. it UC is able to attract more managerial talent, sky is the limit for them .. and the benefits to society at large! power to the entire udayan care family and kiran - who's passion is inspiring.

Children come from different spectrums of life. At times due to their past they re not able to appreciate their present and its challenging to then make them understand that they have a bright future here.

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

UDAYAN CARE is not an orphanage, its a home of children who crave complete love and affection and have right like any other priviledged child.

My mother is a mentor mother at one of the homes that Udayan Care runs. It is such a joy to go into this home and witness the transformation in the lives of these little girls through constant love and care. When you walk into the home you are surrounded by laughing, giggling children, excited to see you and show you all they have accomplished. When I heard the stories of these children and the background they came from I'm amazed at the progress they've made and how happy, normal and contented they seem. One story I remember vividly my mother telling me. One 6 year old girl said to her one day that we must have been bad to have been born in our families that treated us so badly. Then she paused for a moment and said, "But we must have done something good to have come across people like you to take care of us and love us". It was such an wonderful testimonial and reward for my mother.

I had more time during my visits to India to help mentor these children.

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

enough dedicated and hard working volunteers to carry on the good work.
