That India abandoned 6,459 babies between 2016 and 2020 does not surprise Smriti Gupta, a proud mother to two adopted children. "Likely, the actual number of abandonments is much higher," says Gupta, CEO and co-founder of Where are India's Children (WAIC), a Pune-based non-profit that is trying to create awareness about the invisible deserted and orphaned kids who never make it into India's legal adoption pool chiefly because vulnerable parents and guardians do not know that they can safely surrender the child at adoption agencies instead of leaving them at shelters.

PUSKAPA, UNICEF, BAPPENAS,

This study combines a quantitative overview of the leading indicators of well-being among children and young people in cities, with a qualitative, in-depth understanding of how daily life is perceived and experienced by the urban young. The quantitative analysis has predominantly employed existing national data sets, such as The National Socioeconomic Survey (SUSENAS) and the Indonesia Demographic and Health Survey (IDHS), to understand the situation of children in urban settings. The secondary analysis assessed approximately 20 indicators that are based on the SDG/Sustainable Development Goal themes, and that align with the Indonesian National Medium Term Development Plan 2020–2024. The combination of secondary analysis, a systematic literature review, and consultations with children and young people generated insights on the constraints and opportunities faced by them and their broader urban communities.

"Left-behind children" refer to children whose parents or one of them go out to work in the city all year round. Due to the education conditions in the city, they stay alone in the countryside. Because they are separated from their parents all the year round, the lack of good family education in their growth environment has brought many negative effects on their growth and also caused more serious social problems. It can be seen that the research on the family education of left-behind children in rural areas is very necessary. Therefore, this study takes G Village in Guizhou Province as an example. This study includes literature review and a interview of 40 left-behind children and 20 guardians in G Village, Guizhou Province. Also, the physical and mental health and safety hazards of left-behind children and their causes were analyzed.
