Udaan India Foundation (Udaan) is a Mumbai based not-for-profit organization working with children from low-income communities in the field of education. Our primary aim is to ensure that every child of school going age is gaining a strong and holistic educational foundation to become a responsible, compassionate and confident citizen of tomorrow.
Most Udaan children are from families where there has been little or no formal education, where education is not a priority and it is a common place for children to drop out of school in order to contribute to the family income. Believing in the power of education to change lives, a child’s journey at Udaan starts at the Kindergarten level, continues through school years and supports them until they become employable. The focus is always in making learning a continuous, joyous and voluntary experience that will help the children discover and achieve their true potential and take on the future with confidence.
Through our work we strive to see the following perceptible changes:
Enhanced academic performance
Decrease in drop-out rate
Increased enrolment in higher education
Enhanced employability skills
Why We Do it?
In India today, 4% of our children never start school. 58% do not complete primary school. 90% do not complete secondary school. And only 10% complete college.
Udaan aims at changing these statistics by providing children from low-income communities the academic and non-academic support that will enable them to stay and succeed in school and realize their true potential through continuous learning.
