it was great experience and i hv learned more than what i expected. at the time when i was leaving i felt like i m leaving my home...thank you for such beautiful experience...
I had a great opportunity to intern with Udayan care for a month , it certainly believes that all children are special because in the first place it works towards the welfare and betterment of the underprivileged children and secondly it gives an opportunity to intern for students of all courses and streams . For me the internship at Udayan care was one of the best experiences of my life , i found a new family here and it feels just like home because everyone is very helpful and supportive . I learned many new things here and i believe i have become a more better person both professionally and personally .
The first day when I came to the Organisation, everything just seemed like how an office would look like (probably a little boring). But with time, it probably grew on me. I felt more like a home. A home where I might be a stranger to everybody else. As I continued my work I began talking to the staff and soon build a good bond with them.
Now when it's my time to leave the organisation, it feels like I am leaving my home.
I had the great opportunity to intern with this NGO and Udayan Care is really working very well for the orphan and abandoned children, the whole staff is very helpful and I never felt like a intern here, its just like a family as well as I also learned a lot from here, the practical knowledge which I have gathered from here will definitely help me out in my future plans.
I had the lovely opportunity to live in the Jagshanti Udayan Ghar care home for girls for 7 weeks, conducting drama workshops. This was part of our Masters in Applied Theatre programme placement at the Central School of Speech and Drama. Everyone at the home took such excellent care of my colleague and I and helped us integrate into life at the home with ease and grace. We felt very much like a part of their extended family. They treated us with respect, care and compassion.
Teaching English to the children everyday for 2 hours Mondays to Fridays and conducting drama workshops with them, our main programme, was a treat and a joy to experience. The staff were every ready to communicate with us when we needed materials and supplies and always found ways to help us sort any issues we may have had.
We learned much about the culture, some new Hindi words and even got up to date with the latest drama shows! The home cooked food was authentic and top notch, food haven indeed.
Thank you everyone at the Care Home! It has been a truly wonderful experience. Thank you for welcoming me into your Home and taking care of me. I hope I have brought some smiles to you as you have filled my heart with smiles and joy :) Love and Light, Varshini
I had the chance to live in the home for 7 weeks and deliver a drama project. We felt like a part of their extended family. The home really took care of us as international volunteers and the home staff treated us with the absolute top respect.
I volunteered at Udayan Ghars for ten weeks, and my only regret is that I could not stay longer. It wasn't just that the kids stole my heart (although that is certainly true); but seeing with what passion and commitment Dr. Kiran Modi and others at Udayan are working made me want to be a part of their efforts. What stood out in particular is a constant striving to improve the programs and approaches: during my visits to the main office I would often run into program managers discussing what needs to be changed or adjusted. I originally came to Dr. Modi with a proposal to include Udayan Care in my independent research on orphan mentoring programs. She was very open to it, and asked me to let her know if I have any insights on what else the children are lacking and what can be improved upon.
Udayan Care approaches the problems that vulnerable children might have from multiple angles. It provides a family-like environment, mentoring of caring adults, academic, artistic, and sports education, and guidance and support after they enter adult life. Some of the mentor parents, I could see, took on a full time volunteering position and committed themselves completely. The children themselves would tell me: "Udayan Care is the best NGO!" This, as well as direct observation of how well the children and the young people who have graduated from Udayan Care are doing, showed me that the model works. I am so grateful to have gotten an opportunity to be exposed to the great work Udayan Care does.
It was a great experience working with this N.G.O. It gives immense satisfaction to work for the society and see those kids you worked for, grow up into responsible citizens.
An N.G.O. with a very broad objective and aim to reach full perfections. My experience as an intern in this N.G.O. has been totally enriching and encouraging. Throughout my internship, I was working with the organisation, for the children, for the organisation. The multiple projects I was given in the N.G.O, like Report Compilation, workshop enrollment etc, groomed me into a well trained worker in an organisation, made me cautious and careful with work, made me responsible and conscious about the environment in which I am working and for whom I am working. It also gave me immense technical skill and knowledge.
I worked at the Skills Development Centre in Greater Noida for a month. They run a sewing production unit there which is fairly new and my role was to implement a quality standard and create new designs with the women working in the unit. As a trained designer, the project was a perfect fit for my skills and I thoroughly enjoyed my time there. Udayan Care has been lovely and supportive of my ideas and suggestions. The Skill Centre is doing a great job in producing hand made goods in an ethical and sustainable method and I hope to see the centre do well commercially in the future. I highly recommend volunteering with Udayan Care, it is a transparent organisation that is excelling in its work.
