Vision & Mission:

Our vision is to find a #Family4EveryChild. Our mission is to ensure that all eligible abandoned, orphaned, and surrendered children across India are accounted for, and reach a positive outcome in the best interest of the child (including the legal adoption pool).


WAIC (Where are India’s Children) is working to ensure every eligible child in Child Care Institutions reaches the legal adoption pool and potentially reaches a forever family. WAIC’s flagship project is the technology-enabled fieldwork. This project is undertaken in partnership with State Women and Child Development authorities to assess the status of children in Child Care Institutions (CCIs) and determine the best next step for every child.


WAIC needs to continuously Monitor and Evaluate the impact made on the ground using the data collected by our fieldworkers at every stage of the project. So, we are searching for a Monitoring & Evaluation Officer to join our team. We seek candidates with a passion to work for the child’s right to a family, who believe that a family can be created through adoption and are excited about working in the Child Protection and Welfare space to establish and lead the Monitoring and Evaluation Function.
