I am Salma Udayan from Udayan Ghar at Mehrauli, and am super excited to be Guest Editor for this issue of the newsletter – the first one for 2012! I want to tell you about everything that happened at Udayan Care, but since that might be too much, I’ll share the highlights here and you can Read more.
At Udayan Ghars we celebrated New Year. All of us also took New Year resolutions. Mine was a serious one this time - to learn English thoroughly. And my first challenge is writing this as Editor. Hope you like it!
January was also exam time. I was so tense thinking of all the subjects I had to study – Economics, Psychology, Political Science ……… But then I realised everyone was preparing for exams, some even for the Class XII boards. This made me feel a bit more relaxed.
Our annual sports day – the 6th adidas Group-Udayan Care Annual Sports Day- arrived in February. I think Simi Udayan, who like me, is from Udayan Ghar, Mehrauli, and Raja Udayan from Udayan Ghar, Mayur Vihar, were the BEST comperes! We had a lovely drill activity too, by Udayan Ghar, Greater Noida girls.
There have been many new happenings this time and am lucky to share them with you. Many children at Udayan Ghars won prizes at school for sport, studies and also Math! The USF Shalinis had their first Alumnae Meet in Delhi, which was a grand success! Big Friends met children from Udayan Outreach and they have also started a monthly update for all the many new Big and Little Friends who have joined us! Our IT&VT Centres also had a new partnership with a corporate.
Of course none of this would have happened without our fantastic volunteers and all the lovely people who shared their joy with us.
Soon it’ll be time for exam results and a new class for all of us. We’ve all put in our best and I hope we do well.
