Udayachal believes in inclusive education, and has always opened its doors to children from various stratas of society.

Our
History

Once Upon A Time

As a nation, we have always upheld traditional wisdom while embracing emerging new radical ideas. At Udayachal, we have the advantage of a rich cultural heritage, and several endearing and empowering stories from over the years. Here we recount one of our favourites, the story of how we started.

15th August 1955 – The birth of Udayachal, an institution which embodies the vision of our forefathers.

On his routine visits to the Company, Pirojsha Godrej was disturbed by the plight of children who, having nothing constructive to do, were whiling away their time on the streets. Being a man of vision and enterprise, Pirojsha Godrej knew that education was the only way to change the condition of these children and contribute to the development of the nation. He immediately decided to provide his workers and their families the best of facilities. This endeavour led to the birth of Udayachal schools in the garden township of Pirojshanagar.

After getting selected for the camp through school, I was very much thrilled to attend this fun, action packed camp which was held in Rishikesh, Uttarakhand. The camp included activities like rappelling, zip lining, rafting. The mysterious activity about this camp was the Socratic Dialogue.
Socratic Dialogue taught me to think decisively and to express my own views constructively.
The CAV (Community Action Venture) is practical application of the value “giving” which is taught in the program which helps us to think creatively to start and sustain any project/venture. Theatre and Yoga sessions were truly relaxing and amusing sessions.
Team building was fun as we built a raft together as a team which, unfortunately broke while rafting.
I made friends with students from different parts of the country, from Ladakh to Trivandrum, Sikkim to Andhra Pradesh. 14 days passed by as if it was only yesterday.
This camp helped me to find the ‘inner me’. It really helped me to open up and express my thoughts, views and to learn value- based leadership skills.
