Originated under the name "Bachpan" in 2011, Udaan is a social initiative taken by the students of IIT Guwahati which aims on delivering hope to those who never had the opportunity. It aims in the upliftment of the underprivileged through the conduction of various educational workshops and innovational programs.
During their vacations, students from IIT Guwahati and several other colleges conduct Udaan where they reach out to various underprivileged children from orphanages, villages and slums in their locality and spare a weekend to give flights to their hopes with the help of various documentaries, presentations, games and motivation.
Aspiring to bring in sustainable change in the lives of these children, Udaan has now started a program called "Prayas" in which the team of Udaan has taken up the responsibility of educating underprivileged children in a village near IIT Guwahati.
Our mission is to rewrite the pages of a few thousand lives that were thought to be too cheap to live. To reach out to them and to inspire them and to adorn their lives with some wonderful moments.
