134 CR INDIANS

2 CR orphans

There’s no room for more.

Only 10,000 Indians are listed to adopt. Why?

As resources deplete, lines increase, jobs are scarce and human rights continue to be violated, we need to reevaluate what it means to start a family.

Can Adoption be the smarter choice for family planning in India?

#AdoptIndia is a movement to enable young Indians to adopt and to trigger a policy change on the Right of Child

We’re here to tell the People

It’s time to look beyond the color of skin, bloodline, DNA and society.

Think about expanding your family with a child who is already born and waiting for your home.

We’re here to tell the Government

These are children of our state. What good are Skill India, Make in India, and Digital India if 20 million Indian children do not have their basic needs provided?

Young aspiring parents will be more willing to adopt if you make it easier, quicker, and secure. Policy must be revised in order to get more children declared ‘legally adoptable’ and to verify more parents.

We’re here to tell Corporate India

Want to retain your female employees longer?
Want to inspire your staff?
Want to play a role in India’s policy on Right of Child?
Change grows in our networks. Encourage Adoption.

Historically Adoption has been common practice in India’s family constructs across faiths. Many Kings, great men and even Gods (Lord Krishna for one) were adopted.

#AdoptIndia will bring back this practice as a preferred choice for family planning for India’s millennials.
