Ahmedabad

History

The city of Ahmedabad is the largest metropolis in the state of Gujarat. Located on the banks of river Sabarmati, in western India, the city was announced his capital by Ahmed Shah I of Gujarat Sultanate on 4 March 1411 A.D.. Ahmedabad has been ruled by many dynasties; from Solanki to British, and has still retained its identity as a political and business hub. The blend of ancient heritage and vibrant present makes Ahmedabad really unique. The harmonious culmination of art and industry, of reverence to the past and a vision for the future signifies the true essence of the city.

After starting Udayan Shalini Fellowship (USF) Vadodara Chapter, Udayan Care had always wanted to spread its wings to rest of the cities in Gujarat. This dream was realized when Mr. Vijay Patel, a visionary, committed to sponsor the first batch of Shalinis in Ahmedabad. Meenu Ben also volunteered to work on this project, and has been tirelessly travelling and coordinating with the stakeholders in the city. In January 2021, the Core Committee of the chapter was formed with the help of a group of inspiring women, who always wanted to make a difference in the field of girl child education. Udayan Shalini Fellowship (USF) will formally start the chapter with the first batch of 90 Shalinis in Ahmedabad, in the year 2021-22.
