Who we are
Foster Care India believes that our work must exemplify a balance of structure and freedom, both internally and externally. In this tone, Foster Care India focuses on partnership, empowerment and capacity building of existing systems and invests in our own staff. We are working with WorldBlu. an internationally recognized organization, to create an environment where everyone is embraced and empowered.
We promote foster care and kinship care as best practices for children in need of care and protection. Our work focuses on advocacy, direct practice. capacity building and research.
We believe in every child’s right to a safe, nurturing and healthy family environment. We also partner with stakeholders at local, state and national levels; and empower communities to be led by the needs and voices of all children.
Every decision at Foster Care India is informed by the child’s fundamental rights as outlined in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
