We have a Dream! A Dream, that each one of the 1 million children in orphanages in India, will be nurtured into a contributing member of society. Also, that the rehabilitation plan is so sustainable that every subsequent institutionalized child is assured of an optimum rehabilitation outcome.
13 years ago, it seemed just a dream; today it looks real! In 13 years we have come a long way. Our services, geographies, partners, stakeholders, donors, volunteers and Adoptive parents have multiplied. From Adoption facilitation, through enhancement of child care conditions in children’s homes, networking with local stakeholders and finally advocacy, we now look at an end to end solution to child rehabilitation.
Today, we partner 55 institutions in the states of Maharashtra, Goa, Odisha and Madhya Pradesh. Our beneficiaries are 2800+ children. ‘Holistic care’ is our rehabilitation model; ‘holistic coverage’ will now be our functional model.
At CSA, we have never actively solicited funds. Our motto, “Service to the child” prevents us from charging adoptive parents for our services; we do not solicit donations from them either. Our funds come almost entirely from people who know us personally. We also, receive funding from retail donors such as Give India & Global Giving (a manifestation of our credibility).
We invite you to join us in this endeavor. Corporate Houses can support implementation across an entire state or, sponsor smaller projects. FMCG companies can support us in kind too; after all, children in an orphanage pretty much need the same stuff that those in our homes do – nutrition, clothing, health, education, recreation, living arrangements, infrastructure work (toilets/kitchens, water supply, electricity). Individuals can just donate. NO contribution is too small – it all adds up. And of course, volunteer participation is most welcome!
