NGO Profile :
Indian Association for Promotion of Adoption & Child Welfare (IAPA) works for the betterment of abandoned/orphaned children by focusing on securing permanent family for them through adoption, preserving those families that are in crisis, and strengthening the disadvantaged to brighten the child's future. Their activities are also directed towards awareness, advocacy and upgradation of the standards in serving children.

Main Intervention Programs are:

  • Sponsorship for Education & Development: IAPA’s Educational and Sponsorship Program facilitates and promotes education of students from low socio-economic strata. Most beneficiaries are children studying in Municipal schools and some in private schools in the B, C, D and E wards of Mumbai. In FY16, the monthly financial aid along with counselling, professional guidance, medical help and host of support services enabled in sustaining 516 children in mainstream education. Of the above, 126 children were supported by Terre des Homes (TDH) Germany, 104 children were supported Chance of Life, and 100 students were provided financial aid by Chatwani family (UK).
  • Foster Care & Adoption:  The program relates to family care for orphaned, given up and abandoned children. It encompasses several services to the child, the birth parent/s, foster parents, adoptive parents and adoptees. The program includes advocacy, promotion and publicity and adoption placement services. Foster families are selected for their ability to provide quality and tender loving care to a child and who fulfill the criteria laid down by Government. During the year, 10 foster families took over the responsibility to look after 23 children.
  • Kinship Foster Care Program: This program is supported under the Bal Sangopan Yojana, a Government of Maharashtra Scheme and H.T. Parekh Foundation, a CSR initiative of HDFC Ltd. It caters to children facing neglect from their family undergoing crisis. Possibilities of alternative care with an extended family member are explored and financial assistance is provided towards maintenance of the child.
  • Asmita: The program helps children studying in Std. I to VII of West Khetwadi Municipal School as well as those from the nearby Municipal schools to sustain their education and work for their development through various personality enrichment programs.
