Importance should be given to bringing up children in a family environment, Minister for Women and Child Development Veena George has said.

She was speaking after virtually inaugurating a two-day national workshop on ‘Deinstitutionalisation and family-based alternative care’ organised by the Women and Child Development department in association with UNICEF here on Tuesday.

The Minister said children’s community-based rehabilitation could become a success if all stakeholders worked together for it. “The State aims at being a role model for community-based child protection,” she said.
