Raju* came in the care of IAPA in June 2003, when he was seven years old. He was placed in foster care with an experienced foster family on IAPA's roll. He was found abandoned in a public place and picked up by the Police, when he was around five years of age. As per the provisions of the Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection) Act 2000, he was produced before the Child Welfare Committee (CWC). Efforts to trace his original family by the CWC failed and he was declared a destitute. He was in the meantime admitted in the Additional Observation Home run by the State where he remained for two years.

At the time of his transfer to IAPA, he was a very withdrawn child. He had a severe skin infection (scabies) and later on was found to be suffering from tuberculosis. His personal habits and hygienic also needed attention. His foster mother not only attended scrupulously to his medical treatment but also trained him with loving care to overcome his negative habits and improve his hygiene. The loving environment provided by his foster family saw a gradual and happy change in Raju's health and personality.

He became more social during the two years of his life in his foster home, achieved all his developmental tasks normally. He was enrolled in a school and his scholastic performance gradually improved.

As soon as he was declared medically fit, efforts were initiated for his adoption. He continued to live with his foster family till a wonderful caring adoptive family agreed to adopt him.

Raju has now permanently joined his adoptive family.

Many such older children need permanent homes.

Sunil,* a 17yrs. old lad is today well on his way to building a vocation. He has completed the second semester of Diploma course of Electronic Tele Communication, after scoring 83% marks in his Xth Std. exam. In 1998, a student of IV th standard, his future took a turn. He was on the verge of dropping out of school then. His mother, a domestic worker and a sole support to Sunil and his younger sister earned just Rs.1,200 p.m.. By then, his late father, a chronic alcoholic had already ceased to contribute. That is when the Sponsorship scheme of IAPA came to Sunil's aid.

Through out these years of receiving Sponsorship aid, Sunil has shone not only in academics, but participated with zest in extracurricular activities. The special sessions on "How to prepare for the Board Exam", Career Guidance and other personality enrichment programmes of IAPA have proved valuable in achieving his goals so far.

Today Sunil is talking about sponsoring a child in the situation he had once been in, when he starts earning.

Kiran had reached IX th Standard, in 1997, with the support and indulgence of his grandmother Laxmibai, a vegetable vendor. Then, his father, a driver tried to have him quit school and supplement family income, as a major portion of his own earnings went to support his addiction to alcohol. Mother looked after the household, but lacked ability for outside work.

Kiran pursued his and grandmother's dream, with the support of Sponsorship programme in 1997. In 2004, he passed B.Com. Today, while working in a job with a company dealing in Paints, where he is already promised a first raise, he is pursuing Cost Accountancy on the side. Kiran attributes his success in fulfilling his own and grandmother's dream due to the support, not just financial but the encouragement that he received through his association with his sponsors and IAPA.
