There stands an urgent need for alternative care for children who have been abandoned or are parentless.

To tackle this critical problem, SOS Children’s Villages India developed a community-based care solution in a certified foster family that we help and support to enable them to take care of the child’s education and skilling; health and nutrition. In 2021, SOS Children’s Villages India partnered with the Government of Meghalaya to implement individual quality foster care.

The pilot initiative has been introduced with 50 children.
