Affecxn (read Affection) is a first of its kind newsletter focused on childcare and adoption, published by CSA. This Newsletter is one of the many initiatives that CSA has taken to address the issues of low adoption rates and sub-optimal rehabilitation outcomes in the case of institutionalised children in India. There are 25 million destitute and orphaned children in India languishing without proper care and no voice of their own. While Adoption is a viable option for children below 6 years, approximately only 3000 adoptions take place annually in the country. Also, care conditions and Rehabilitation outcomes in many orphanages is dismally poor. CSA would like our stakeholders informed on various activities and news around the issue.
