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 work and live in California, USA. I visited India and visited Udayan Care. In the long-run, I resonate well with Udayan Care's (UC) vision and mission statements which is to focus on uplifting those most in need for a nurturing home, basic - health and education and girl education and vocational placement. This NGO or not-for-profit organization is cost-effective, efficient and professionally managed where self-esteem and human dignity is at its core. This was my first time volunteering at UC and I was impressed by the well-managed and streamlined volunteer management process starting with an informative orientation. I gave a 5 day workshop on Soft-Skills development related to English language learning, Interview Preparation Skills and Critical thinking.

I accentuated to UC management about couple of items that should be stopped as a traditional practice rooted in Indian bureaucratic culture.

I am significantly impressed by my volunteer experience at UC and would return to it at the next opportunity and provide double impact (2x students).

I am Liza Bora from Amity University pursuing Master's of Social work. Getting to work as a fieldwork intern on wednesday's and friday's with Udayan Care was great experience. The happiest thing was meeting the children and conducting workshops wherein they took full participation with us. Documentation work was taught to us well by Mr Tarni to me and my collegue. Hope Udayan care do wonders and change the lives of children for better. Dedicated staff and friendly atmosphere to work under Udayan Care.

I worked at Udayan Care for a month as an intern. The people at the head office were friendly and full of life. There was never a dull day and I learnt things that I would have never otherwise known about.
Udayan Care and its motto to give each child an equal opportunity, to follow the "Rhythm of Life" is inspiring. I hope my research will help the aftercare services across India and I hope to have made a difference with my work.
Thank you Udayan Care for inspiring people and especially me everyday.

Teaching at the Udayan Care was my first volunteer experience ever. The students were not just enthusiastic, inquisitive and cooperative but also gave me unflinching love and respect. It was an enriching and wonderful experience for me. The time I spent with the children of Udayan Ghar Mehrauli Home 3 and 12 will be among most cherished memories of mine. The coordinator and supervisors were also very supportive. This experience has also laid the foundation stone of my passion for teaching. This exposure helped me understand the whole process of learning in a better way. I understood the importance of breaking things down into simple cases and I could see how effective learning process could be if we adopt algorithmic thinking. I also understood the significance of retention and memory, both long term and short term(working memory) in order to grasp a concept or an idea.
But above all, this experience helped me imbibe the values essential for being a sensible and responsible citizen, and motivated me to always contribute to the society in every way possible; especially to fulfill the needs of such underprivileged children.
Thus this Internship has been an enriching and learning experience for me and teaching me to be more patient and compassionate in dealing with children from such versatile backgrounds.

I have done volunteership at one of the udayan ghar in Ghaziabad. I must say that the kids are being brought up like a jewel covered in a piece of velvet cloth. They are given equal opportunities to shine the way along. I have remained as one of the udayan shalini's fellow, who earlier received fellowship support from this wonderful organisation. Kiran Modi mam is a source of inspiration. Now, I can proudly say that I had been a part of this programme, though as a volunteer now. Moreover, I would always seek forward to give my inputs to any of their programmes and love to be a part of them.

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 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.
