24 January 2015

It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to the St Joan of Arc Udayan Mission 2015 website, in anticipation of our visit to India in February. We hope to be able to provide all our readers with an insight into Udayan by publishing a daily diary (where technology allows) written by the students along with photographs.

You will find at the top of every page the countdown to our departure and whilst in India, where we currently are because some days will be spent in Kolkata.

The Group

The group that will be going to India to visit Udayan includes 8 students, Mrs Weldon, Liam Lynch and former student and Secretary of City of Joy Aid, UK – Chris Mann. To read about each of the people please click on their name in the sidebar or below.

The Journey

The sixth visit to India will be spent solely in Kolkata with lots of time at Udayan but also visting other charities supported by the City of Joy Aid, UK.

Good morning, pilgrims!
It is a bright and sunny Sunday morning and I am just planning how to avoid doing the marking I have brought home. I’m not back in school until Wednesday though so it will probably get completed.
I will be following your journey with great interest and look forward to the daily news.
Have a wonderful time together and do all you can for the children of Udayan and for yourselves.
