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.

I would highly recommend volunteering with Udayan Care, it was a very satisfying month and i'm really happy with how much we achieved in such a short period.
I have been interning at Udayan Care. It's a great Foundation to work for. It provides various opportunities where we can grow professionally and personally. The people here are extremely cordial and make you feel accepted.
I have been a part of Udayan Care as an intern. The NGO has been doing a wonderful job in training the children and helping them fulfill their dreams. The staff is very helpful and loving- never felt like an intern-always felt like family! This internship helped me grow in all aspects-learning something from everyone I met..
I achieved personal satisfaction by working with this organization. Volunteer friendly yet very disciplined in the work. Much to learn from all the children and staff at the main head office. Cheers Udayan Care for creating 'Many Miracles of Hope'!

I wished to intern in an organization that worked for children, families or communities. Hence, I chose to spend the next 21 days at Udayan Care. It is an NGO which works for disadvantaged groups by establishing more family homes, ensuring girls’ higher education, providing vocational training and livelihood programmes, advocating for better standards in institutional and alternative care, etc.
The programme started with an orientation to the interns, 8 in all, about social sector, Udayan Care’s Vision and Mission and its activities across the country. We were also informed about the strict timings which the interns were expected to adhere to, and were told that we’d be working 6 days a week between 10 am to 5 pm at the Lajpat Nagar head office of Udayan Care. Subsequently, the students, divided into different teams, were attached to different departments for three weeks to work with them.
The work allotted to us included, first of all, knowing and understanding the organization, their activities and their brand guidelines, and assisting in areas such as developing content for the communication department. We gradually started enjoying working in an office environment. Each day, we used to reach office between ten to ten thirty in the morning and would leave after four thirty in the evening.
We also had the opportunity to visit the Mehrauli Udayan Ghar, where we spent around 5 hours with the children, playing dumb charades and Antakshari. These girls were cooperative, well behaved and eager to play games and get photographs clicked with us. We left the Ghar with a smile on our faces. The satisfaction derived from spreading smiles amongst children was much more than any college project we would have ever done!
During the internship duration,each intern was supposed to conduct a workshop for the other interns, and these sessions-ranging from cupcake decoration to Haiku writing-brought us interns closer to each other.
The highlight of the internship was a day when an Udayan Care alumnus came to the office to share her life journey with the interns. The lady, whose medical education had been sponsored under the Udayan Shalini fellowship programme, talked about the importance of dreaming big and working hard to realize dreams. She charmed us with her zeal and passion and motivated us to pursue bigger goals.
The programme concluded with each intern presenting a report -summarizing their experiences and recommendations along with organizational development strategies.
It was an amazing learning experience. The work assigned suits your interest. Since this is a volunteer driven organisation, my work had immense value to the organisation.
I worked with Udayan Care for a Period of 3 weeks . It was a wonderful journey . I worked in the Accounts department . I got a glimpse of corporate environment by working here . I used to make different annual and quarterly expense model for both local and FCRA donors. Also I maintained day book expenses of various homes . My supervisor ( Mr. Rajeev sir and Abhimanyu sir )were always there to help me . I am thankful to be a part of this NGO and i will continue to be a part of Udayan care.
I was an intern with Udayan Care for 3 weeks and it was the best experience .It helped me explore as an individual and inspired me to become a change. The common mindset of community work is challenged by Udayan care as it also incorporates office work along with community work which is great learning experience. I can't thank Udayan care enough for all the exepriences and teachings it help me gain through my internship.
