almost a year of struggle, we finally received license
to run our 8th Home at Pratap Nagar, New Delhi.
This is the 4th home that we have opened for boys. As soon
as we received the license the CWC also sent us children to
be looked after at the home. Thank you judges!
we endeavor to make our children a part of the society we
try to make them as socially interactive as possible. Children
of our Sant Nagar Home celebrated Holi with CSC, their corporate
mentors. They had a gala time playing with colours in the
CSC lawns and were later treated to mouth watering snacks.
Thank you CSC!
Other homes too enjoyed the festival in their own way.
the Counselor at Sant Nagar Home, Ms. Shubhra Shahare
prepared to leave for US; Ms. Sadaf Farooq
joined us and took on the responsibilities at the Home. Ms.
Shahare briefed her successor on her experiences at the home
and on the emotional and mental status of each child. She
shared the secrets of handling the emotional outbursts at
the home and briefed her on tackling the various disciplinary
issues. Thank you Home of Hope!
children from the Gurgaon Home received a great boost of confidence
when they received an opportunity to participate in a
Football match with FIFA. Three
of our boys, Nazir, Mrityunjay and Prakash were also chosen
to play the match with the famous international football players,
Baichung Bhutia and Vikash
Dhorasoo. Thank you Consortium for Street Children (UK) and
Salaam Baalak Trust!
Chander Nath Foundation invited children of
all Udayan Care Homes to a lavish ‘chaat’ party.
Children sprinkled throughout the plush lawns and savored
mouthfuls of pani puri, dahi bhalla, chhole bhature, jalebi,
ice creams and more. Thank you Mr. Anubhav Nath
for giving our children this much awaited break, away from
the monotony of the final exams that just got over. Continued
mentoring support and psychological inputs along with an enabling
environment has once again proved to be a successful formula
for our children. Children who had been inducted only last
year were not only able to regain a hold on their life but
also succeeded in getting admission in various good schools
such as Kalka Public School, Tagore International
School, Modern School, Four Steps School in Delhi, Rockwood
School in Noida and Greenfield School in Kurukshetra. Thank
you dear Principals!

well-being plays a major role in the establishment of positive
mental health in a person. Keeping this in view, we organized
a workshop on First Aid with our caregivers.
Dr. Vijayata Sethi, a gynecologist
volunteered to help our caregivers deal with certain emergencies
such as black eye, minor burns, electrical injuries, insect
bites, bleeding, fracture, sprain, toothache, ear ache and
more in a more informed manner. Thank You Doctor!
Wendy Butler, wife of the Deputy High Commissioner, Britain
very kindly invited our children from Sant Nagar Home to spend
an evening with her at her residence. This was a gesture that
received a lot of appreciation from the children as they were
exposed to an entirely different style of living. A close
interaction with the British delegates led to an exchange
of cultural values and information, which helped the children
in broadening their horizon. Thank you madam!
Indian volunteers joined Udayan Care for activities
such as teaching kids, data entry, arranging & updating
children’s files. 2 of them were sent to us by
I-Volunteer. Benedikt Lorenzet and Katharina
Durr from Germany continue to stay with
our children at Gurgaon and Greater Noida Homes and provide
our children with some very interesting learning experience.
At the same time, 6 volunteers from USA,
UK, Switzerland, Australia and Canada
also joined hands with us. Our Children’s Home at Greater
Noida received 35 visitors from USA who interacted and spent
some quality time with the children there. Thank

Sant Nagar and Mayur Vihar Homes. Students from Bluebells

us this honor!
you Adidas, Xansa, CSC and AbsolutData Research & Analytics
for continuing to mentor our children from Sant Nagar, Mayur
Vihar and Greater Noida Homes.
Monthly Mentors’ Workshops often make
us ponder over issues such as how do the children perceive
a Mother and a Mentor Mother and should children from such
deprived backgrounds be sent to high profile schools.
This April, we reflected upon the kind of psychological impact
the mentor mothers/ fathers are having on the Udayan Muse
Amuse children. Discussions were held on the deep influence
of high profile schools on the psyche of our children.
Our alumni, who have passed out of these schools and are now
leading an independent life are the ones who often settle
down our apprehensions. Thank you alumni!
