New Delhi, 18th December 2023: The Central Adoption Resource Authority (CARA), Ministry of Women and Child Development, Government of India, and “Where are India’s Children” (WAIC), an NGO dedicated to securing family rights for abandoned and orphaned children in India, are thrilled to announce a groundbreaking Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to advance child welfare and adoption initiatives.

Under this pioneering partnership, CARA and WAIC commit to enhancing collaboration through research and data-based evidence to promote the well-being of children. The MoU marks a new era in public-private partnerships and innovation, focusing on non-institutional care of children and rehabilitation through adoption.

Leveraging technology, CARA and WAIC will expand the legal adoption pool, offering more children the chance to find their forever families. The organizations will also advocate for the adoption of special needs and older children, while raising awareness to prevent unsafe child abandonment.

Tripti Gurha, CEO of CARA, stated, “This MoU is a significant step forward in ensuring the well-being of every child. Collaborating with WAIC allows us to pool resources for positive change.”

Meera Marthi, CEO of WAIC, added, “We are proud to join hands with CARA to make a lasting impact on vulnerable children’s lives, providing the love and care they deserve.”

Protima Sharma, Co-founder of WAIC, emphasized, “Through this partnership, we can create a more inclusive society where every child has a chance for a better future. This MoU reflects our commitment to making a difference.”
