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 15 Udayan Ghars across Delhi, NCR, Kurukshetra and Jaipur More than 7000 Shalinis through Udayan Shalini Fellowship Programme More than 14,000 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 homework 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 advice, 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, Punjab, Rajasthan, Uttarakhand, Maharashtra, West Bengal, Telangana, Himachal Pradesh, Karnataka, Gujarat

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, caregivers 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.

Its been an extremely good experience working with Udayan Care. It was a mind-stimulating and thought-provoking internship for me as I could actually get in touch with the realities faced by these underprivileged children. The doomed childhood phase is actually improved, nurtured and enhanced qualitatively by this non-profit organization. Hats off to this noble cause!

One of the best NGO in india I have ever seen. The most kind and humble thing one person can do is to do good for the welfare of the society especially for children. This NGO is best known for its good deeds that they have Udayan Ghars for children where they get nurtured with all love and care. I was lucky to work with Udayan Ghar project where I got to know different children with different skills set. Interaction with them was the best part in the project.
Security of children was at par and taken care of by coordinators and supervisors.
Highly Recommended by me!!!

It was an excellent experience working with the udayan care. I learned a lot about the functioning of the ngo's. I got to know how the children in udayan ghar lives, what is their daily routine. After meeting the children I got to know that every child has different mindset and even after that they are smart enough to know what is good for them and what is not.
