At a time when cases of abuse in children’s homes have shaken the nation, Gujarat is showing the way on how foster care can be a sound alternative with the right mix of financial incentives and vetting of foster families with the state seeing a significant jump in children under care from 1,784 in 2015-16 to 9,588 in 2017-18.

The state’s success in revamping its four-decade-old foster care system ties in with the Centre’s recent effort to encourage foster care to reduce dependence on child protection homes that are difficult to monitor and have been vulnerable to misuse and the ‘Gujarat model’ is being seen as an experiment that could be emulated.
