Welcome to Udayan Care

Udayan is a Sanskrit word meaning 'Eternal Sunshine'. Udayan Care aims to bring sunshine into the lives of underserved sections of society that require intervention. Registered in 1994 as a Public Charitable Trust, Udayan Care works to empower vulnerable children, women and youth, in 14 cities across 9 states of India.

Starting with the establishment of just one small family home (Ghar) for orphaned and abandoned children in Sant Nagar, Delhi in 1996, 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.

Our Foster Care Team is conducting a research study to better understand the practice of foster care in South Asia. Click here to read more ...
