Udayan is a Sanskrit word meaning ‘Eternal Sunshine’. Udayan Care is a New Delhi based voluntary organisation that is committed to sustainable social development through working with disadvantaged children and women. Udayan Care was founded in 1994 and it is engaged in providing long term residential homes, where children, who are orphaned or abandoned, can be nurtured in a simulated family environment from the age of 6-18 years; giving monetary and mentoring support to girls from weaker sections of society enabling them to continue higher education.
Udayan Care has spread its work for disadvantaged groups during the last 22 years by establishing more family homes, helping girls’ education, providing vocational training etc. To date, Udayan Care has nurtured over 15,000 young minds. This has been made possible only through the support of like-minded people, donors and partners who believed in Udayan Care’s work and mission.
