As we bring in a new year, it is apt that we celebrate with the re-launch of our much loved 'Dawn' Newsletter. In years gone by, Dawn provided the Udayan 'family’ around the world, with an indepth look at life at Udayan, outlining the latest news and initiatives. We have now gone digital and hope that Udayan supporters over the last 49 years, reach out to us with their email IDs to stay abreast of the latest and greatest from the beloved, Udayan!
New Branding ...
We felt it an apt time also, for the unveiling of our new and improved logo! Udayan gives children affected by Leprosy a 'new life' and for most of its life, this new life was signified by the 'rising sun' in the Udayan logo. We are delighted to herald it back in and have re-branded all our digital platforms with a new, modern look and feel, which holds true to our former, original identity. We have also developed a new 'tagline' - Rising Above Leprosy, which we believe reflects the work that we do here at Udayan.
It Takes a Mighty Team ...
2018 was a marathon year for the team of hard workers behind Udayan! Our Governing Body members, the teachers, house brothers and mothers, administrative and other staff who work tirelessly to provide a warm, loving home for 250 children and a place where they can learn and grow into a dignified livelihood. We applaud the efforts of Dipak Sahu, our new Director and take this opportunity to warmly welcome 2 new senior staff members, Adrija Mitra (Assistant Director) and Sreoshi Ghose (Communications Manager) who will help us professionalise and take our organisation to an all new level in the coming year.
We Couldn't Do it Without Support ...
We have been humbled by the continued support from our friends both near and far, and have the utmost gratitude for their generosity in supporting our cause. We take this opportunity to send compliments of the season to our major supporters, who help keep Udayan operating, and look forward to a long and meaningful friendship as we work together in this important mission!
