Foster Care Society’s primary mission is to establish and model best practices for foster care organizations seeking to help foster youth and their parents throughout India. The society was registered in Rajasthan, Udaipur in January 2017 as a non-governmental organization (NGO). Building on previous work done by Foster Care India, Foster Care Society set out to move children from institutions such as orphanages to individual families. We believe that every child deserves a nuclear family that can provide love and support. Foster Care Society began its work with four families who were already fostering in Udaipur. Within one year we have more than doubled that number, working with 10 families in Udaipur and the surrounding districts. We strive to spread awareness about the importance of fostering and bring more caring citizens into our family.
Foster Care Society’s mission is not only to move away from outmoded institutions but also to provide individualized and community based supports to keep more families together. To that end, on May 1, 2018 we opened our Family Support Centre, “Parivar Sayhog Kendra,” in order to empower families and prevent family separation.
