Provide a home, care and training for leprous children and children of lepers.
Udayan is a residential center for the care, rehabilitation and development of children with leprosy, which was founded by Father James Stevens in 1970.
During 2002 and 2003 the foundation financed the maintenance of the Uduyan home, whose name means Resurrection.
By 2010, Udayan had provided care, treatment and a future to more than 7,000 children and their families, who came from the leprosy colonies, around the city of Calcutta. What initially started with only eleven minors, today, serves 100 girls and 200 boys.
