Permanent and complete rehabilitation for children in rural adoption agencies
Our ability to find homes for 171 children over a period of 3 years is perhaps, our largest single achievement. The trend of rural adoptions which is now a practice was started by us.
Malnutrition often leading to acute health problems, a common phenomenon in many adoption agencies has been completely addressed in the agencies supported by us!
Court Orders pending since 2005, cleared
Court cases pending in District Courts of Orissa since 2005 have now started moving; The Hon. Chief Justice of Orissa High Court has directed all District Courts to ensure that all adoption cases are processed as per pre-defined timeline.
