Video: This eight minute film introduces the Udayan Care ghars, homes for displaced children in India. The founder of Udayan Care, Dr. Kirin Modhi, saw a need for orphanages in which the children would live and grow up in an environment where they felt they were with a family which would be family the rest of their lives. Dr. Modhi talks about the children and the goals of the homes. Several “mentor" mothers who help with the children are featured.
'Udayan', in Sanskrit, means Eternal Sunrise. Registered in 1994 as a Public Charitable Trust, Udayan Care works to empower vulnerable children, women and youth, in 13 cities across 8 states of India.
It is only the steadfast belief of thousands of people across the globe that has enabled Udayan Care to bring hope and joy in the lives of over 12,780 youngsters. Each milestone in their 20 year journey has been possible only because someone, somewhere made a choice to support the rights of the children and youth they serve.
