Family-Based Care Learning Exchange of Sri Lankan Government to India

Children's Emergency Relief International (CERI)

This report provides a summary of the learning exchange that took place between the Sri Lankan government and the Indian State of Rajasthan's government around family-strengthening, foster care, and group foster care models implemented by Foster Care Society and the Department of Child Rights in Rajasthan, India

The goal of this exchange was to allow child protection experts and stakeholders from different regions to interact with and learn from each other, allowing them to view practical examples of successful integration of family-based care models and practices in situations like their own. 

This learning exchange resulted in an order from Sri Lanka's Ministry of Women & Chair Affairs and Social Empowerment to start complete care reform in the country (See pages 21 - 22).
