Every child has a right to love, and be loved and to grow up in an atmosphere of love, affection and of moral and material security. This is possible only if the Child is brought up in a family.

Vathsalya Charitable Trust (VCT) was founded on June 28, 1988, as a non-profit, non-government organization under the Indian Trusts Act of 1882. Named after the Sanskrit word for mother's love, Vathsalya initially focused on providing homeless children the experience of familial love through its childcare facilities and pioneering family foster care systems, particularly for children with special needs. While originally dedicated to placing children in adoptive homes, VCT has since evolved its mission. Today, we no longer facilitate adoptions; instead, we have expanded our focus to strengthen families through comprehensive child development programs, informal education,education sponsorships , nutritional support, and income generation projects for mothers. This shift reflects our commitment to fostering long-term stability and well-being for children within their own families and communities.

Migrant Families and Community Development

In recent years Vathsalya have made a strategic move from adoptions and foster care to family preservation and strengthening for migrant communities. Through our community based rehabilitation program, we reach out to parents struggling to cope with the difficulties of life. In response Vathslaya focuses on three programs, education: transitional and flexible schooling for migrant children as well as vocational tuition; training: regular engagement with families and communities in life-skills training such as nutrition and sanitization and; educational sponsorship: whereby families who cannot afford decent education are sponsored in sending their children to an accredited schooling institution. All program functions rely solely on donations.

In addition when children are at risk of being separated from their families because of problems arising out of unemployment, vices, marital disputes, sickness or death in the family, Vathsalya intervenes and works the family providing counselling services and psychological and financial support. This is a long-term program requiring regular assessments and the Board of Trustees is committed morally to the efficient functioning of the Trust and also to improve its efficiency on a continual basis. The Board has approved the current vision and mission statement.
