Educating a girl is often the lowest priority for many families, thus creating a grim scenario for the development of girls in the country. India has a high number of uneducated children, especially girls, and out of every 100 girls, only 1 reaches secondary level. There is an urgent need to ensure every girl in the country is being educated.
In order to promote higher education for girls aged between 16-21 from disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds living with their families, Udayan Care, an NGO
, has been working for last 25 years
across 11 states in the country. Till date, Udayan Care has nurtured over 21,000 young minds in 26 cities across India

means a ‘dignified, empowered woman’.
