Unicef’s Project Lion was set up earlier this year to provide support for children living in institutional care in India and to protect them against violence, exploitation and neglect. There are some 200,000 orphans in India and the project’s three-year aim is to move as many as possible out of institutions and into secure family care. The inspiration for the project is the 2016 film Lion based on the true story of Saroo Brierley, an Indian boy who was separated from his family at the age of five and taken into an orphanage, before being adopted by a family in Australia.
