NGOs are playing a leading role in taking care of orphan and abandoned children. Since the government of India funds only 9% of child care Institutions, it is our duty to support all NGO orphanages with donations and advocacy.
To address the fall in donations for orphanages and avoid shortages, Child Protection Scheme (CPS) funding by the government should be extended to all registered CCIs, at least until the current COVID-19 pandemic situation stabilizes. the process to avail funding under ICPS is cumbersome and is released as reimbursed only. Often CCIs get reimbursed for a far lower amount given low budgetary allocations towards child protection services.
