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.
