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 2021 impact so far
children moved from orphanages into family care
families supported with food parcels, medical care, and training by our social work team
children supported through our established community networks
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.
