A well run orphanages can be a nurturing and conducive environment for child care and development. Proper access to education, life and vocational skills, livelihood training linked to job opportunities so that children are able to earn and start building an independent life for themselves & some hand holding goes a very long way into transforming these children into happy and contributing members of society.

Most orphanages are not well run. Reports of "horror" stories - children malnourished, abused and harassed exist. Most orphanages are below standards even in the basics -toilets, clean water, decent living conditions, nutritious food, hygiene etc. Recreational facilities are non- existent, schooling poor, very little after school educational support. Children have to leave orphanages once they turn 18 years. They step out into the complex outside world, with no clue of how to navigate through.


Our areas of work cover the entire ecosystem spanning Adoption, Orphanages and Aftercare. We do on the ground actions that deliver results - more adoptions, happier children, better developmental outcomes, placement into decent jobs etc. These results are real - the difference to the lives of children are clear and heart-warming. At the same time we focus on sustainability by implementing best practices and processes and transferring knowledge to our partner institutions.

Long-Term Impact

CSA's vision is to ensure every orphan child be nurtured till he/she grows up to be a happy and contributing member of society. We believe in "A family for every child"- through adoption and where that is not possible, then "family like care" in a well-run children's home. CSA is transforming orphanages into caring and nurturing child homes; CSA helps and supports children transition into independent and income earning adults. With this project, 3400+ orphan children's lives will be transformed.
