Home for 200 abandoned infants below 6, in India



abandoned rural infants do not get adopted. We find families for them and offer family-like care while they remain institutionalized. We upgrade living, care and development conditions in orphanages.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

India has 25 million orphans; only 3000/year get adopted. Children below 6 years whose caretakers cannot care for them are relinquish/abandoned and reach adoption agencies. There being no local demand, rural children do not find homes and languish in appalling conditions. On the other hand, there is a huge demand for adopting children, in city agencies.

How will this project solve this problem?

The project promotes/facilitates rural adoption. It upgrades living (civil work, sanitation, water, electricity), child care/development (nutrition, health, play, education, recreation) work conditions. It also, advocates change.Changes are long-term.

Potential Long Term Impact

An adopted child is permanently rehabilitated (incl. inheritance). Rural adoption will become a trend. Rural agencies will offer quality care comparable to a city agency. Changes in processes/practices will bring ongoing and permanent benefits.
