Welcome to St Joan of Arc’s Udayan Mission 2024

It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to the St Joan of Arc Udayan Mission 2024, for our visit to India in February 2024. Udayan has been a whole school charity for St Joan’s since 2004 and the 2024 mission will be the ninth trip students from the school have made to visit Udayan. We hope that our website will provide readers with an insight into Udayan and our travels through our daily diary written by us, the students, along with photographs.

The countdown begins…
