There are single and multi-unit Udayan Ghars, wherein 12 children (6-18 years) constitute a unit to give individual attention to each child. This ‘Group Care’ model ensures children are loved and cared for by a group of Mentor Parents – long term volunteers, a team of caregivers, social workers, and mental health professionals.
Udayan Ghars are located in middle-class neighborhoods to help children integrate with mainstream society. Children receive quality education in some of the best schools. Once they reach the age of 18 years, they are supported through our Aftercare Programme and continue with higher education or vocational training towards economic independence. Since inception in 1996, Udayan Ghars have nurtured over 1200 children. Presently, over 200 children live at 17 Udayan Ghars, in 4 states, viz., Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana and Rajasthan and 30 young adults are being supported through our After Care Programme.
