Promote adoption & ensure quality destitute child care:25 million orphans,3000 legal adoptions every year.We work for "a family for every child" and if it is not possible atleast "A Family like Care".
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Adoption is a complete/permanent form of child rehabilitation. It provides a home/ family/ health/ education/career/inheritance. India has 12 million orphans/only 3500 adoptions/year; many below 6 years can be adopted. Children in rural agencies/ older children remain un-adopted; the rehabilitation outcome is poor. Red tape, cumber-some/unethical practices are road-blocks. We ask city parents to adopt from rural agencies. We upgrade agencies. Through Govt. intervention we change policy/practice
How will this project solve this problem?
We identify (rural) agencies where children are awaiting adoption; invite city parents to adopt from there. Upgrade agencies through support/training (childcare/ frastructure/paperwork); sensitize, coordinate with Govt./judiciary for policy change.
Potential Long Term Impact
We aim, through quality-care, to deliver a youth population of destitute children who grow to be the best. Every waiting child must find a home or get quality care. Policies/practices must allow automatic movement into the suited care-option
