It's all about families. Not orphanages.
of children living in orphanages across the world have a living family member
Orphanages are separating families, fracturing communities, and ultimately harming children.
We know change is hard and scary. There are too many orphanages and too few alternatives. They can feel necessary, and seem like the ‘obvious’ solution, when families are in need.
At Child’s i Foundation, we are building a blueprint for sustainable alternatives to orphanages: truly social services run by and for communities to strengthen families and support them to raise their children, as well as finding new foster and adoptive families for those who need them.
OUR 2020 IMPACT SO FAR
children have been supported with essentials during this pandemic, such as food and medical care
children have been helped through our established community networks
community volunteers have been trained and supported to make sure their communities are safe and thriving
We’re helping to reimagine the whole child protection and care system, repurpose orphanages and rebuild services at the heart of communities that are designed to strengthen and support birth, foster and adoptive families.
