Inadequate care

Inadequate care
One of the biggest myths is that children in orphanages or children’s home are there because they have no parents. This is not the case. The parents to most of them simply can’t afford to feed them, provide clothes or educate them.  For government and charities, placing children in institutions is often seen as the most straightforward solution. We are working to develop alternatives that enable families and communities to provide the care that gives every child the chance to thrive and which is every child’s right.  Institutional care should be used as a last resort and only in the best interest of the individual child. Currently we are working in 8 districts of Jammu and Kashmir to promote family, kinship and other alternative care. During this time we are also trying to provide support to 25 children’s home/orphanages run by government and non government agencies to improve their care and protection standards.
