Kinship Care in India: A Case Study Documentation

India Alternative Care Network (IACN)

This IACN report outlines the importance of families for the emotional, physical, and cognitive growth of children. The authors discuss that all efforts should be made to provide family-based care to children without parental care, and institutionalisation should be a measure of last resort for the optimum development of children. The report draws on the experiences of eight families in kinship care arrangements and the children placed with them.
