It’s all about English – Vinglish!
English, a widely spoken language across the seven seas is not just used for communication anymore. One’s written as well as oratory skills convey a lot about one’s personality and abilities.
In order to help our children have a grip over the language, the Udayan Care Information Technology Programme organized a two-hour session on ‘How to have fluency in English Communication’. Mr. Jamal Siddique, a soft skills trainer at the ETASHA society, conducted the session for a batch of 40 students from our Uttam Nagar Centre in West Delhi.
Another training was conducted by EFICOR (The Evangelical Fellowship of India Commission on Relief) an organization committed to empower specially-abled. Since Udayan Care helps train specially-abled students from EFICOR in subjects like Technology and English Communication, a workshop was conducted wherein three of our faculty members from Udayan Care IT Centre were trained on how they could motivate and empower the specially-abled.

They had their employees come to the home every day to conduct various sessions like Career Counselling, Environment Awareness, Health and Hygiene, MS Office and more.

The participants of Artroom programme visited the Indian National Trust for Art & Cultural Heritage (INTACH), Delhi (one of the world’s largest heritage organizations) and were truly mesmerized seeing how INTACH works to conserve the art and culture.

The universal language of love: food
The Orion Square on 30 June’18 welcomed aspiring, young masterchefs to hone and display their culinary talents. The workshop was open to all children in the age category of 12-17. The celebrated Corporate Chef of Tonino conducted it, and Chef Suman Sharma taught the essentials in the art of cooking and explained that it more than just mixing flavors and adding spices.
We would like to thank The Orion for hosting seven of our children in this prestigious workshop and help them explore their culinary talents. During the event, they made different kinds of sandwiches and pasta, the right way but added their own individual touch to it.
