Benefit of Foster Care Scheme for children in Gujarat for the second time at Vadodara
On Thursday, two orphan brothers begin a new life with a new family. Thanks to the government’s Foster Care scheme many orphan children will soon find a family to call their own.
Samaj Surakha Sankul, a public private partnership of government of Gujarat and Deepak Foundation is the first institute in Gujarat to help orphan children find foster family. Sankul is the pioneer and the only institute in Gujarat that has successfully found foster families for orphan children who were under the care of Sankul, a residential institute for children with disabilities and children in need for care and protection.
Two real brothers lives and studying at the institute for years at the Deepak Foundation-run social security complex without a mother or a family. They wished to have a family, parents and a normal life like other children.
To bring happiness in their lives, the District Child Protection Unit, Vadodara has found a family who are willing to take care of the children under this Foster Care Scheme. With the collaborative efforts of the District Child Welfare Committee of Vadodara, Social Security Officer, District Child Protection Officer and their team and Deepak Foundation team, Foster Care is provided for the second time in the state of Gujarat. Earlier, the same team had given the benefit of the first foster child care in the state.
The children were formally handed over to their new families on Thursday in the presence of Dr. Ruchiben Mehta and all the office bearers, staff, District Child Welfare Committee, District Child Protection Officer and his team at the Social Security Complex – Deepak Foundation. This was the biggest opportunity of life for the children and family.
With one successful case and two more children finding a home and family, Deepak Foundation is now looking to connect with more families willing to welcome orphans into their homes and lives.
