Home for 200 abandoned infants below 6, in India

by Catalysts for Social Action Vetted since 2009 Top Ranked Effective Nonprofit Site Visit Verified


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.

total goal
monthly donors


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.


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.

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.
