UDAYAN is a home and school on the outskirts of Kolkata, for children whose families are affected by Leprosy.  These children suffer from the stigma of the disease - they are rarely sent to school and often end up as beggars, street children, child workers or involved in crime.  Girl children become victims of human trafficking.


?Set on 8acres of lush, green land, this residential home and school helps transform the lives of up to 300 of these children - who receive the highest quality of care, compassion and education, enabling them to lead healthy, respected, productive lives. We take these children from childhood to livelihood – ensuring they are settled in dignified jobs to help them and their families ‘rise above leprosy.’


Udayan is fortunate to have Australian Cricket Legend, Steve Waugh, and renowned French Author, Dominique Lapierre as Patrons and has received extensive acclaim and support internationally for its work.


The Boys Home Superintendent will be responsible for overseeing and managing the 'home, health and wellness' program for Boys at Udayan. You will be responsible for managing and supporting Udayan House Brothers in their responsibilities of taking care of Children, and coordinating activities and initiatives to ensure the optimal care and support to Udayan Boys.
