Director's Message

The last few months had been very hectic for Udayan. While we were trying to proactively avert the Coronavirus crisis and manage things amid lockdown, Cyclone Amphan hit West Bengal which caused massive devastation across the state.
Despite all the challenges, Udayan is ensuring
 the best for our children and families through COVID-19 relief work. We hope things are soon normalized and Udayan operates in full swing.  

On behalf of Udayan I wish you good health in these trying times. Keep safe.
