About Udaan Learning Center:
Udaan Learning Center is an open space to ignite curiosity amongst creative minds; our common activities are sports, crafts, origami, science models and recycling. We have a wonderful library with earthy ambiance for local children and our campers. All these facilities are used by children on a daily basis after their school hours & all day during weekends & other school holidays.
At Udaan Learning center we try to reach out to children with the purpose of creating awareness about conserving nature, learning concerned with spreading love amongst people of different religion caste and community, an understanding of achieving peace rather than materialistic success. Environmental education, contributions to physical health and well-being, and development of personal and social skills is our practice.
