TARA Child Protection & Empowerment opened the doors to a new Outreach Center earlier this year – their first non-residential program focused on prevention.
This groundbreaking approach in India addresses the root causes of why so many children with parents end up in institutionalized care. The center, based in a marginalized community of rural-to-urban migrants in South Delhi, aims to strengthen vulnerable families and keep them together. Offering community-based programs and educational support for children and their families – such as day care facilities, helping families to access government services such as ID cards, education and health services, and crisis intervention – this program makes institutionalization of children the very last resort. The opening of this center represents a monumental shift towards preventative services, and is a testament to TARA’s evolution, openness to learning and commitment to child protection best practices.
