Udayan Care USA was founded in 2010 as a 501 (c)(3) non-profit by Jesse George-Nichol and Ricky Surie, US citizens who, while in India, volunteered their time to improving the lives of disadvantaged children. Experiencing the transformation of their passion and dedication brought to the lives of the children they worked with, and learning of the tremendous need in India, they decided to continue and grow their involvement once back in the US . Thus, Udayan Care USA was born.
To address the lack of care and protection of orphaned and abandoned children, and of education and empowerment of girls from lower income families, Udayan Care USA has partnered with Udayan Care India, (established as a Trust in 1994, in Delhi)who are effectively and efficiently working towards making positive change to disadvantaged children and youth.
The support from Udayan Care USA has helped Udayan Care India elevate these children to a better life and to be productive members of society through two main programs, the Udayan Ghar and the Udayan Shalini Fellowship (USF), which have been in existence since 1996 and 2002, respectively.
