New & Renewed Funding Support!

Our partners and donors are our strongest pillars. Udayan has been able to bring a difference in the lives of several children from leprosy colonies. And this has been possible only with the continued support and faith of our supporters. In the last quarter too, we made some encouraging progress and express our heartfelt gratitude to our donors and partners.

LIC, under the LIC Gold Jubilee Foundation Grant, has supported Udayan with funds for the purchase of a new School Bus!  This is a valuable support, as the existing Udayan bus was nearing the end of its life on the road.  With a grant of Rs. 24,67,000 Udaayn will purchase a new 'Tata Star' 48 seater bus to ferry our students to and from school and other activities. A big thanks to LIC for their support!

SBI Life Funding Renewal

SBI Life Insurance's CSR Department, Udayan's major donor, has renewed their commitment to Udayan for this financial year. We are thankful to SBI Life Insurance for their generous support to our children to meet their education, health and nutrition needs for the financial year 2020 -2021.We appreciate your commitment to our cause.

Brick by Brick

Huge thanks to St. Joan of Arc School in the UK and City of Joy Aid, UK for their timely financial support to construct the 900/8 ft. boundary wall - which was profusely damaged by cyclone 'Amphan' in May 2020.  The cyclone uprooted many trees, electric poles, caused flooding and damaged the many properties in  North 24 Parganas, West Bengal.

The rebuilding of the boundary wall started on 26th July 2020 and was completed on 24th March 2021 - now all our children are safe within the newly built, strong campus walls!

Joyful Wags - Friends of Udayan, Australia

We are happy to announce that Friends of Udayan Australia had launched the “Dog Bandana Project” to raise funds for three leprosy colonies in West Bengal. 100% of proceeds from the bandana sales would go into funding small rooms with supervision facilities for preschoolers in these leprosy colonies. During the Covid-19 lockdown in Australia, Deborah Bedford, a staunch supporter of Udayan, launched some exclusive dog bandanas, made with the help of her school-going granddaughters. The machine-sewed bandanas were in beautiful colours and each piece was exclusive. ‘FRIENDS OF UDAYAN AUSTRALIA’ labels were sewn onto each one and would be a perfect gift for your loved pet! The bandanas were priced at $15 each and a total of $250 was raised from the sale.
