With nearly 172M children at risk, India is estimated to have nearly 35M children in need of care and protection

our children

Guiding Principles

Strong foundations

The base on which a structure can be built. We are propelled by the fact that the development, learning and the overall wellbeing of the child is immensely enhanced when with parents or within family environments, and not when separated from it.
