Sri Lankan Government Learns Family-Based Care in India

As the field of family-based care expands globally, countries are learning from each other’s innovations. The visit in August 2022 between the Sri Lankan national government and the state of Rajasthan, India offered a framework to Sri Lanka’s child protection system reform. CERI, in partnership with UNICEF Sri Lanka and UNICEF India, hosted Sri Lanka’s Ministry of Women, Child Affairs and Social Empowerment delegation on a learning exchange on family-strengthening, foster care, and group foster care models implemented by Foster Care Society and the Department of Child Rights in Rajasthan, India.

It takes systemic change to transform the way we care for children.
