CHILD'S i FOUNDATION
In Uganda, 50,000 children are growing up in orphanages. Nearly all have family. Orphanages make orphans out of children.
Every day, families in crisis or poverty are forced to give up their children in the hope of a better life. Decades of research prove what we know in our hearts: a family is the best place for a child to grow up.
Child’s i Foundation helps reunite children with their own families where possible and finds loving, Ugandan adoptive or foster families where the child’s own family cannot be found or is unsafe. We help repurpose orphanages into community hub centres that provide services that prevent family separation in the first place.
Orphanages are damaging to children and we need to reimagine the way we care.
We support vulnerable families to prevent them from placing their children in orphanages.
We are using our own journey to help other orphanages transform how they care.
The families and children we work with are our heroes. Read more about their stories from Uganda below!
