Priya*, a 12-year-old girl from V.B. Navarange Balgruh Pandharpur in Solapur district, was adopted recently in April 2017 by parents from Tamil Nadu – Mr & Mrs Vishwanath. This is the first case of an older child adoption that has taken place in Solapur district through CCI-SAA Linkage. Priya is one among the 193 total orphan children found in Solapur data collection. This data collection exercise was undertaken to identify children eligible for adoption. This is one of the biggest successes of CSA’s adoption program which is ongoing in Solapur district.
