We hope the New Year started off on a great note for you - just as it has for us at Udayan Care.

We thank all of you who made it a big success - our sponsors American Express and Vatika Group, Anubhav Nath for giving us his wonderful grounds as the venue and all our Mentor Parents and supporters who went all out to invite their friends and family
