Child Care Institutions (CCIs aka child shelters) goes through adoption
evaluation and assessment by the local WCD authorities and reaches

Pallavi* was found

when she was 5.


Pallavi* was found in a railway station when she was 5. Her process was started, and a paper notification was given, but the child was not declared legally free for adoption due to various delays and Pallavi languished in the shelter for over four years.

With the approval of WCD, when WAIC started work with CCIs, our tech solution CLMS flagged Pallavi's case for adoption evaluation. Our field workers supported the WCD in getting her declared legally free for adoption. We are happy to share, Pallavi reached her forever family in 2022.

WAIC has greatly improved the adoption ecosystem in Telangana by supporting the government home with training, streamlining the process, and providing WAIC’s technology solution, CLMS. WAIC’s intervention has resulted in nearly 100+ children being included in the legal adoption pool. The aim is for Telangana to become a model state in adoption, and the partnership between Telangana WCD and WAIC will persist to advance this goal.
