Udhavi is a Chennai based organisation, set up to help the elderly. Especially those who live alone without their children. They offer companionship by visiting them, to stave off their loneliness and is doing commendable work.
It was founded by Sabita Ramakrishna, a vibrant senior citizen, at the age of 75.

Volunteers of Udhavi take up small errands for the elderly, like helping them take a walk to the beach, to the temple, to concerts or an occasional movie. They accompany them on short shopping sprees. To those who are not tech savvy, they explain how to use the mobile phone, how to use the computer, to browse the Net, and to use Skype for talking with their children who live abroad. They help the elders visit the bank, learn some of the functions which might be difficult for them to understand.

Udhavi has a band of committed volunteers ranging from the age of 18-83! Groups of volunteers are personally trained for assisting elders the UDHAVI way.
