Dolly Anand
Mentor Mother, Udayan Ghar III


Udayan Children

When 12 cheerful faces greet you with smiles,
When 12 pair of hands reach out to hold you,
When 12 pair of eyes are sparkling with love,
What can a mother’s heart do but melt.

When a little head quickly claims your lap,
When loving little arms entwine your neck,
When tiny little hands enfold your hand,
What can a mother’s heart do but melt.

When the teenage heart is full with new emotions,
When her mind is full of fear and commotions,
When all she needs is a hug and patience,
What can a mother’s heart do but melt.

When a mischievous twinkle lights the eye,
When a longing gaze seeks a gentle touch,
When a craving heart yearns to call you, “Ma”,
What can a mother’s heart do but melt.

Mrs. Dolly Anand is one of the founders of Udayan Ghar III in Mehrauli, way back in 1999. A masters in English literature, since the time of joining the Udayan Care family till date, she has broken all records in winning over her wards.

Priyanka Udayan with Gandhi Ji’s Charkha

On a Gandhi Trail !

Priyanka from our Greater Noida home did us proud as she succeeded in catching the Gandhi Trail! This October, Youth 4 Gandhi Foundation organized a digital poster painting competition on the theme ‘Gandhi & Sports’. Priyanka, while being the only child participating from an NGO, was awarded the 2nd prize for her digital creation on the theme and earned herself a Digital Camera! Four years back, Priyanka, barely 13, was highly traumatized at the loss of her parents and abandonement by her extended family. Today, a sensitive child, she has coped with her past perfectly and is moving ahead to a fulfilling future, exploring new avenues with a drive to excel. 


In Proximity to Technology !

The Udayan Outreach Programme continued with its monthly workshops with the HIV +ve parents and affected children. The older children of the programme were instructed that they become familiar with computer and its applications. While the children in private schools know the operation, the children in government schools had limited knowledge and access to it. Hence, this was an attempt to make them more aware. To our sheer surprise, most of the children came for the next workshop with their email ids in hand!

The Plan Ahead !

As the programme enters its 6th year, we plan to expand the reach of the programme by taking 20 more children under its, wings, thereby touching the lives of 20 more families. Do support us in giving better education and nutrition to the children who most of the time, suffer from lack of attention to their needs. To know more, log on to http://udayancare.org/



Enrollments & Certifications !

The month of September and October saw 110 enrolments in various courses of the IT centres. Also, 39 students of these centres were certified as they completed their courses.
