Due to death of parents, poverty, illness and family break dawn many children in India living without parental care and leading a measurable life. These children are normally send to orphanages which is against the development of children, no matter how best they are. Instead of sending them to orphanages the project will provide with a family, a home where they will be ensured with education, basic health care, nutritious meals and opportunity to live a life full of joy, happiness and dignity.


Produce the children before Child Welfare Committee with Individual care plan and facilitate placement in a Foster Family.

In the long run, these children will be linked with Government support system under Integrated Child Protection Scheme which guarantee that every child has a Right to Family. Institutionalisation will be treated as a last resort.
