Enabling children without parents to grow up in a familial environment

Introduced in 2017, the Kinship Care Programme ensures that children without parental care grow up with minimal disruption to their educational, cultural and social lives. Under this initiative, children who have lost their biological parents are cared for by their extended families or relatives. Our interventions safeguard the right of every parentless child to grow up in a familiar environment by strengthening the capabilities and income of the extended biological families, so that they can provide wholesome childcare and development till the child attains adulthood.

  • 513 children are growing up with their next of kin
  • 325 families are being served by the programme
