ONCE 18, abandoned youth can no longer remain in care homes. Udayan Ghar protegee Suman* has secured a place in Mumbai's National Institute of Fashion Technology but needs help with tuition and hostel fees.
ALMOST 13 per cent of Indian youth are jobless - and mainly it’s not their fault. To equip them, and India, with a better future support Udayan Care’s newest IT skills centre @ Rs 1,500 per student per month.
FOUNDED in 1996 on the belief that a loving family and home is the right of every child, Udayan Ghars nurture orphaned and abandoned children in a family environment. In each, small groups of children are cared for by mentor parents who voluntarily commit themselves to raise them like their own. Rs 27,500 helps covers a child’s education per year, Rs 15,000 will aid a child’s annual nutritional costs or Rs 60,000 can look after a child’s expenses for a whole year.
WITH the aim to enable underserved youth and adults improve their livelihood options, the centres offer various computer and graphic design courses, as well as those in stitching, enamel painting, spoken English, etc. Since inception in 2004, over 11,347 youth have been trained. A computer skills course costs between Rs 1,200 to Rs 5,000, depending on the level. A six-month training in stitching skills costs Rs 3,000 and one in enamel painting is Rs 6,000.
THE Udayan Shalini Fellowship Programme was started to address this statistic: only six per cent of graduates in India are women! USF financially supports the higher education of needy girls with a desire to learn and provides skill-building workshops and individual mentoring to Fellows or Shalinis. Since 2002 UC have helped over 5,500 girls. You can help too. Depending on the level of study, anything between Rs 13,000 and Rs 28,000 would support for one Shalini’s studies for a year.
Commendable work in uplifting girls from marginalised sections of the society, training, guiding, mentoring them and transforming lives. It feels so good to be associated with Udayan Care.
After years of partnership with Udayan Care, we remain in awe of the dedication and love exhibited daily, monthly, yearly to the children in their care. We are proud to play a small part in their remarkable work.
I came to Udayan Ghar aged five. Udayan Care has given me the best - best home, best education, best chance to achieve my dream of helping others. I’ve nearly completed my social work degree! Soon I will work to give others the love given to me.
