The impact of our work has been multi-fold
Legally Free for
Identifying Abandoned and Orphaned Children in Child Care Institutions (CCIs aka Child Shelters) and Supporting their Movement into the Legal Adoption Pool using our technology solution CLMS and extensive fieldwork
With the support of the Department of Women and Child Development (DWCD) in Maharashtra, along with our partner, we are working in multiple districts of Maharashtra.
1. Project associates visit every Child Care Institution in the district, and digitize the data of children who are staying in the CCI in our technology solution CLMS
2. Based on certain indicators, the rule engine in CLMS recommends children for adoption evaluation.
3. Project associates prepare the documentation and present the identified children’s cases in front of the Child Welfare Committee.
4. Based on the CWC orders, our project associates update the child’s record in our CLMS and work on the adoption process for the child including giving paper publication, following up for the final non-traceability report etc.
5. Once the process timelines are complete, the CWC declares the child legally free for adoption. Thereafter our associates work with the linked specialised adoption agency to upload the child’s record on the CARINGS PORTAL so that child can be matched with a waiting parent.
6. On an average it takes anywhere between 2-4 months for a child to be declared legally free for adoption.
1.Training our implementation partners in digitizing the children’s data and entering the data in agreed CCIs to our CLMS solution and training them on the process of the ground.

We conduct regular consultative sessions with CWC and DCPU to present our findings and plan next steps for identified children.
We have conducted consultative sessions with WCD’s tech development partner and presented them with the requirements and functional specifications to build CLMS in the ongoing Child Protection Management Information System (CPMIS) being developed by the Telangana WCD.
We have been selected as one of the members of the State Inspection Committee (SIC) to inspect CCIs as per the JJ Act.
