HCL Uday Program
HCL Foundation’s flagship urban community development program - UDAY, seeks to create
‘green, clean, healthy and empowered communities’. Aligned with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, it is developing an integrated solution to break the vicious cycle of urban poverty.
Defining Uday’s approach is its intrinsic belief that urban poor aspire to a life of dignity and self- respect. With the right opportunities, every individual has the potential to take charge of their lives, dare to imagine a different future and work towards it. Echoed across all interventions under Uday, this belief sets the community on the path of resilience and success. Our strategies are carefully designed, such that, they speak both to their environment and to their ambitions. Uday’s unique ‘Convergence’ approach brings this philosophy to life. Uniting critical stakeholders– the state, non-profits and HCL volunteers in a rich partnership, it meets its responsibility to the community and supports them in realizing their dreams. HCL Employee engagement and participation is a key lever that spans across all programs.
‘Uday’ defined by 3 C’s:
Comprehensive: the intervention targets critical areas of a person’s well-being - health, education, sports, livelihoods and skilling, environment, disaster reduction and sports for change. Continuous: takes a life-cycle approach. Uday walks with the community through all stages – infancy, early childhood, adolescence, adulthood and old age.
Collaborative: taking the approach of convergence, it brings communities, non-profits, local and district governments and HCL employees together, leveraging the strength of each stakeholder for the greater good.
The 3 C’s combine to create the source code of Uday
Uday works in the immediate neighborhoods of HCL across 11 cities where HCL has a presence. Currently being implemented in partnership with like-minded organizations, HCL Uday is now poised to scale – both in terms of depth of the intervention as well as scale of its reach.
