Shalini's journey from an closet artist to becoming a design executive

Shalini lives with her parents and four siblings in Badarpur, South Delhi. Her father works as a painter and mother is a homemaker. With five children to provide for, her father barely managed to make ends meet.

Badarpur is close to the Haryana border. It is a poor urbanized locality and girls in the community face a lot of constraints.

Shalini was a talented artist. Looking at her potential, Shalini's sister managed to convince her parent to enroll Shalini in the Graphic and Print Design Course. This course was being conducted at the Badarpur's Udhayan Care IT center.

Shalini cleared her screening process and joined the course. The course nurtured her talent and gave her the skill required to get better. She worked very hard at her subjects even with lack of resources at home.

Shalini got selected to do an internship in DDB Mudra Group. During the course of this internship she worked closely with their in house creative team. Her seniors were appreciative of her typography work.

This experience added wings to her career. She completed her course with flying colors.

Shalini is at present working with Brightwaay, South Delhi as a Designing Executive. She is working on improving her professional skills in the field of designing. She is now a confident young and independent girl. She also contributes financially to her family.

About The NGO

Udayan Care
Udayan Care Logo
Udayan Care

Appalled by the stark reality of 31 million orphans in India and shocked by the condition of institutions housing them, a few like-minded people came together to take serious action. This obsession was the seed which sprouted as Udayan Care - which was registered in 1994, as a Public Charitable Trust.

Dr. Kiran Modi, started Udayan Care and the first Udayan Ghar (Home) for orphaned and abandoned children, in Delhi, with a strong belief that every individual is a catalyst of change. A doctorate from IIT, Delhi, Dr. Modi is a person of varied experience in several fields, including the media and has also been a founding member of several other trusts working for the disadvantaged.

They started with the Udayan Ghar Programme for orphaned and abandoned children. In 2002, they moved towards higher education for girls through the Udayan Shalini Fellowships. In 2004, they started the Udayan Information and Technology Centres to improve employability of underserved communities.

A thorough research on models existing for children in need of care & protection and opportunities for disadvantaged women and youth helped develop innovative models across all initiatives.

The process was taking time but it helped us to create an impact from the programme.
