Volunteering Oportunities

Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Adult & Child Matching Programs, Children & Youth, Foster Care, Job Training, Vocational Counseling

Mission: A nurturing home for every orphaned child, an opportunity for higher education for every girl and for every adult, the dignity of self-reliance and the desire to give back to society.

Results: Since inception, with the help of many passionate people like you we were able to impact and empower: 857children in 14 Udayan Ghars across Delhi, NCR, Kurukshetra and Jaipur 6192 Shalinis through Udayan Shalini Fellowship Programme More than 13,000 women, children and youth through Udayan Care Information Technology and Vocational Training Centers INTERNING/VOLUNTEERING: WHAT IS IT ABOUT? As an intern, you will have the chance to apply what you have studied by working at the office, having an impact on the structure of the NGO. Psychology, economics, statistics, IT, languages…no matter what is your background, your skills will be needed! As a volunteer you will spend your time with the kids (for international volunteers, criminal background check by your local police is compulsory!), organizing activities, teaching them languages or other subjects, helping them with homeworks or simply just being there for them and enjoy time together by playing or going to the park… Of course you can do both, half of the day at the office and half of the day in a Ghar. You will discuss and decide your specific tasks with your supervisor once arrived; as the situation is constantly evolving and different needs may arise therefore no pre defined job description can be shared. Both you have to get accustomed to the new situation and the staff needs to know you before matching your interests and capabilities to the needs of the kids and organisation. Keep in mind the differences between India and your home country. All of the international volunteer/interns feel disoriented and often incur into difficulties at the beginning but you will find in Udayan Care all of the support you need. Cultural activities, daily life advices, a lovely staff, the full availability of your supervisor, all of the other volunteers will help you cope with the cultural shock and in a couple of days you will enjoy your experience at best. There are always many interns and volunteers working with us, coming from all over the Globe to share the same experience: France, Japan, Ghana, Italy, Germany, USA, Egypt... The cultural variety will further enhance your staying and you will have many occasions to hang out together. Other opportunities will be about sharing your passions by giving workshops, receiving help for organizing your travels through India, having traditions, Hindi and cooking lessons, international days, receiving support to find the best accommodation according to your requirements… Your volunteering experience will be complete by offering you a chance both to give back and grow in individual capacity. By the end of it, you will probably have friends from all parts of the worlds and know itsy bitsy of all the languages.

Target demographics: young children and women

Direct beneficiaries per year: With a Vision "To Regenerate the Rhythm of Life of the Disadvantaged", presently there are 857 children across 14 Udayan Ghars, 3136 new Shalinis were inducted in the Udayan Shalini Fellowship Programme who will live their dream of higher education. Since inception our 13 IT centres have equipped over 13,369 students with the dignity of self reliance. Our Vocational training centre has since inception given successful training to 1095 underserved women in Stitching and Tailoring, Beauty Therapy, Paper Craft, Enamel Work, Block Printing, Graphic Design, China painting, etc. and provides livelihood opportunities for disadvantaged women by selling items created by them, under the label ‘Sukriti’. Udayan Care is a Public Charitable Trust, working for the last 25 years, for the quality care of disadvantaged children and women. Appalled by the stark reality of 31 million orphans in India and shocked by the condition of institutions housing them, a few like- minded individuals got together to

Geographic areas served: Delhi, U.P, Haryana, Pujnab, Rajasthan, Uttarakhand, Maharashtra, West Bengal, Telangana

Programs: Our various innovative Programmes are: 1. Udayan Ghars: long term Residential homes for orphaned or abandoned children who are are nurtured in a simulated family environment from the age of 6-18 years. Through a strategy called L.I.F.E- Living In Family Environment - this ‘Group Foster Care’ model ensures children are loved and cared for by a group of Mentor Parents-socially committed individuals (volunteers) who groom the children with a team of social workers, care givers and supervisors. 2. Udayan Shalini Fellowship Programme - USF Through monetary and mentoring support, this programme supports girls from weaker sections of society to continue higher education. Today, we are proud that our girls, whom we call Shalinis, are pursuing fields like Engineering, Medical, CA, Computer Sc, among others. To make them socially aware as well as socially responsible, they have to fulfill 50 hours of mandatory social work. This Programme is currently on in Delhi, Kurukshetra, Gurgaon, Dehradun, Haridwar, Phagwara, Aurangabad, Kolkata, Jaipur, Hyderabad, Mumbai, Greater Noida, Panchkula, Chennai and Baddi. 3. Udayan Care Information Technology and Vocational Training Centres Udayan Care IT & VT Centres enable underserved youth and adults to develop IT and vocational skills to improve employability and livelihood opportunities. At present, we run 13 Computer training and 1 Vocational Training Centres where we focus on bridging the digital divide and impart business skills to increase the employability of the beneficiaries we work with. 4. Advocacy Udayan Care also engages in research on the care of disadvantaged children. Through organizing conferences, participating in NGO networks, developing policy recommendations, we ensure the protection of child rights. We played a leadership role in setting up "Justice for Children: A Policy-Thought Network" an association of NGOs and government members for protection and advocacy of child rights. 5. Volunteer & Internship Programme By encouraging and motivating civil society to participate voluntarily in our Programmes, we enable them to actively advocate for child rights and serve society in a sustained manner. Udayan Care’s Internship Programme provides a great opportunity for students to learn and gain on-the-job exposure to the not for profit sector. The objective of the Programme is to provide students with intense, practical opportunities to learn and experience the constituents of the non-profit sector, as well as contribute in their areas of interest.

I enjoyed to work with Udayan Care. All the staff members were very supportive and helpful. All are doing great job. I belong to educational field. This is the reason, I chose to teach Hindi phonetics to younger ones. We cannot neglect this fact that teaching should always be bidirectional. Children could learn something from me, but this experience would help me to be a better future teacher.
There were no time restrictions. You can apply according to your schedule. And whichever field you are belonging to, it doesn't matter. You are a college student or working man/woman or anyone else, if you wish to apply. Just fill the form and go for it.
Have an experience and enjoy to be a part of it. :) All the best.

My internship at Udayan Care was amazing. It challenged me in so many ways. I started teaching them things. I laid stress on Science and maths, as these are the things they need to apply in real life. It gave me immense satisfaction and inner peace when they showed interests. I gave them sufficient breaks between studies, and played educational games, told them moral stories too.
Creative things like drawing, painting, were also included in my daily targets. I made sure I worked hard, and I am thrilled that I was given the opportunity and made it happen. Members and employees of the NGO supported me a lot, and gave me ideas also. Atmosphere there was awesome, close to nature, peaceful, with very good hearted and thoughtful people around. I got acquainted with people who have devoted their whole lives for the betterment of society; with no self -gain or greedy motive behind it. They chose social work as their profession; because they wanted to do it, not for gaining publicity or making money; but for the satisfaction of joy of giving. Respect for them truly. I always recommend internships to anyone who is looking to change career or studying. Doing an internship was one of the best decisions I have made, both professionally and personally and is an experience that I will cherish and value forever.

My mentor was really helpful will assisting work to me.
Udayan Care will always be memorable to me..

My experience at Udayan Care is one such experience which I would cherish for the rest of my life. Udayan care does what it says and that’s the main reason behind their utmost reputation in the country. The kind of lifestyle and facilities they are providing and the etiquettes and education they are imparting to the children is the need of the hour. The children there were smart and unique. Apart from school, each one of them is engaged in some or the other activity and that too at an advanced level. Udayan care is even giving them the opportunity to showcase their talent at the Bigger stage by sending them abroad. The kind of exposure, they have provided to me has also helped me to develop mentally. All the children there treat all other children living in the home as their siblings. They also treated me more like a friend and less like any other volunteer or intern. The employees there were also quite helpful and made me feel like a part of their family. This journey gave me an opportunity to look towards other things in my life. It helped me realize that how small help from someone can do good to the other. This journey is something I will cherish for the lifetime. While working in the NGO I realized that despite all odds one has to face in his/her life, one can still be a strong person. This realization has helped me become a better person and has changed my perspective about life and people. I am very thankful to my Institute and Udayan care for giving me this opportunity and to help me make a better person. All in all, I want to say that the kind of work Udayan care is doing is excellent and I feel privileged to provide my part of support to the organization. It was a life-changing experience as I was able to feel the happiness of giving something without expecting anything in return. The joy of doing good gave me immense satisfaction. I also do hope to come back soon for another period of internship (if time permits) and will also like to remain connected for the future.

I started working in Udayan Care as an Intern in the field of Psychology.I didn’t knew that I would experience such vast exposure in my field here. I heard a lot about this amazing Organization before and I was so curious to work here. I was greatly influenced and amazed by the work of this Organization. I learned a lot. I was asked to work at Udayan Ghar Balika Sector 72,Noida. I really had the most amazing experience. I was so happy to see that the children were so disciplined, respectful, friendly and so energetic. They cooperated throughout. They all were so motivated to learn new things. When I used to teach them certain psychological concepts or strengthen their concepts through psychological games or activities they used to enjoy a a lot and used to tell me the next day that they played the same game or same activity at the evening again. The kind of satisfaction I used to get was priceless. Every child was so attentive. I had the best time of my life in Udayan Care Summer Camp 2018 held at Greater Noida. The kind of energy that was present in the children as well as in all the staff members throughout the summer camp was the reason to such a successful and wonderful event. The way all the people used to work together as a family was a treat to watch. I was given the responsibility of Documentation because of which I get to experience such beautiful event. I believe that the kind of positivity and happiness I experienced at Udayan Care, I wouldn’t have experienced it at any other organization. Everyone is so helpful and gentle in their approach here. All my doubts or queries were taken care of by the social worker I was working with or by the Volunteers Department. The kind of work Udayan Care does is speechless. The way Udayan Care look after their children and the way they raise their children I don’t think I have seen this at any other organization. The After care program, Udayan Shalini program and their work in the IT Sector highlights the thoughtfulness of this organization and tells how updated and trending this organization is and also all their programs expresses their idea of equality, freedom and quality of life for each and every child . I would surely love to work with Udayan Care again in the future and would encourage the people I know to volunteer here for sure.

My experience working at Udayan was true and meaningful. I call it true because the organization actually does what it says. It works to nurture and offer a safe environment for children to grow, learn and progress. It was meaningful because I was able to put all of me into the work, interaction and experience that the brief tenure offered me. The experience was fulfilling, fun and significant. I would love volunteer again.

It's my first time working with Udayan Care but my experience here has been amazing. I would definitely be continuing as a volunteer. Udayan Care has given me an opportunity to meet such amazing children. I've learnt a lot from them and they're now like an extended family.

My experience with Udayan care is one I will remember for the rest of my life. While working with children I realized it's a pleasure to be around them and their energy is contagious, one just cannot be tired while sitting around them. The children have this zeal for life that makes you feel as if there is so much to look forward to. My time at Udayan care was one amazing phase.

Udayan Care has provided me a great opportunity to know the children of the home intimately and develop an everlasting bonding with them.During my days of association with Udayan care I found that the care and efforts taken by the organisation to provide all modern amenities to the children for their development are worth appreciation. The cleanliness and quality maintained in the home deserves special mention. Most importantly, I carry a beautiful memory of my association with the children which I will always cherish fondly through my entire life. I was overwhelmed with joy to receive mementos from the children made out of their love and affection for me.

Udayan Care is an organization that doesn't only provide a home to those in severe need but also to those who work for making it happen. Working at Udayan Care opened me to a new family of workaholics dedicated to making a difference.
I got to learn a lot during my time here and shall keep in touch always because I really do believe in the cause and the people here.

I have been associated with 'Udayan Care' since September 2017 and i must say it's an amazing place to work. There's a lot to learn from and contribute to this institution dedicated to the noble cause of empowering vulnerable children, women and youth across 11 states of India. The management under the leadership of Kiran mam is very kind and supportive. I would like to thank the entire team of Udayan care for making my volunteering experience such a memorable one.
Loads of Love !!

On the first day I felt connected with the organisation and the cause. Never ever have I been this much excited about the task given to me. The members of the Organisation were always supportive and provided me with the resources required to achieve my tasks.
I would like to thank Kiran Mam for all her guidance and support and all other members who supported me. I thank my college for giving me this great opportunity to work with Udayan Care.
Udayan Care will always remain special to me and will always look forward to work with it.

I have been associated with Udayan Care since Sept 2017 and since then it's been a great opportunity to give whatever I can selflessly towards contribution of a better society. There are many NGOs/Child Care Institutions in India who focus on child welfare and they truly live upto the mark by supporting the children to a legal age of 18. But what next just imagine yourself left by your family at that age, how will you carry on living a normal life after living under the guidance of parents/CCIs . Its difficult all of a sudden to face the harsh realities of life and children are vulnerable to unemployment, psychological stress, physical and mental illness, homelessness and dependency. Udayan care has started implementing After care services which will the benefit the children leaving CCIs and help them establish an independent life. Very few organisations have come up such initiatives that have holistic approach for welfare of children. The journey to fulfill this mission is very long yet Udayan Care is determined with to get over it with a strong workforce supported by energetic and diversely equipped volunteers. Udayan Care has seen a tremendous support from highly active volunteer base.

Working with Udayan Care was an incredible learning opportunity! The staff are incredibly welcoming and kind, and show an inspirational dedication to their work. They are motivating, hard-working, and engaging. The work can be very self-driven and directed, which offers a greater freedom to the individual work process and overall project outcome. It is a holistically enriching experience and it is greatly recommended to pursue this nonprofit if slightly interested or curious. Working in the homes, if you choose to do so, is an experience that will impact you indescribably.

I worked with Udayan care under the Shalini Fellowship Programme for two months. As a content writer, it was mostly an online work. But still I believe that my efforts would serve the purpose of helping out the Shalinis. With constant support and guidance from the leads, I learned a lot while working. It was a peaceful environment conducive to personal development.

During my one year association at Udayan Care my main aim was to develop high order thinking capabilities in the group and I have given my 100% towards this. We know Udayan Care’s aim is to support overall development of all inmates and ensure they are given opportunity for right skill set and education to evolve as capable, responsible individuals. In my approximately 25 visits, I contributed towards the same cause.

This project was focused on interacting and assisting them with studies. During my long sessions, we used to have a study session first and then an activity session like playing football, solving puzzle, awareness on hygiene, creating a joke scrapbook by pasting the newspaper jokes etc. though these activities were limited to two to three students at a time yet enjoyable.

Overall I got a great experience from this project as it enabled me to touch many lives as if you teach someone you touch his soul. I have enjoyed my time in Udayan Ghar and will be continuing as time permits.
