OUR STORY

Child’s i Foundation was born when Abraham died in a Ugandan orphanage. Our founder Lucy, volunteering at the time, was devastated. She set up Malaika Babies’ Home to prove that every child can grow up in a family. For years, Child’s i supported families, reunited families and made new adoptive families for hundreds of children.

But we knew that even our orphanage was no place for children, really. Not even while they waited for families. So in 2017 we took a great big leap and closed our Babies’ Home to set up a foster care programme. 

Now we help others do the same - reimagine how they care, repurpose their orphanages, and rebuild families.

Together we are stronger. Without our team of partners, corporate partners, and foundations we would not be near as strong.
