I am one of the beneficiaries of Udayan Care, Ghar(HOME)Programme. I have successfully put my personal traumas behind and decided to move ahead in life with the help of wonderfull mentor mothers ïŠ
My career progressed through a positive mental health program; good education and professional training. A degree in Hospitality Management from Rai University won her a place in the workforce in the UK. On my return, I joined the prestigious Oberoi group of hotels, moving later to the Country Inn group of hotels. My heart was however in the career that I subsequently chose – “Making a difference in the lives of those deprived of the joys of childhood.”
Everything else followed: the Swasthi Foundation for Education out of my UK savings; the switchover from the glamorous hospitality industry to the more meaningful NGO sector. I formally joined Udayan Care as a resource mobilizer and also Executive Assistant to the Managing Trustee. Having been a beneficiary of Udayan Care in the past, my thought process is more in tune with the children in the Udayan Care homes than those who have never experienced such traumas (works very differently) and my decisions have made a positive impact at the grass root level.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the excitement that comes from making a difference in children’s feelings and the understanding of all that goes on around them.
