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


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.

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
