Appalled by the stark reality of 31 million orphans in India and shocked by the condition of institutions housing them, a few like-minded people came together to take serious action. This obsession was the seed which sprouted as Udayan Care - which was registered in 1994, as a Public Charitable Trust.
We started with the Udayan Ghar Programme for orphaned and abandoned children. In 2002, we moved towards higher education for girls through the Udayan Shalini Fellowships. In 2004, we started the Udayan Information and Technology Centres to improve employability of underserved communities.
A thorough research on models existing for children in need of care & protection and opportunities for disadvantaged women and youth helped us develop innovative models across all our initiatives. The journey had many hurdles but Udayan Care's dynamism and your unflinching support helped sustain it.
