Join the movement
to make sure every child grows up in a safe and loving family
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.
In the last 5 years we have
prevented 45,070 children from entering orphanages
orphanages were repurposed into community-based services to address the root causes of child separation
foster carers trained to provide a safe and loving home to children in need
children were transitioned and placed into loving families and community-based alternatives to give them the best childhood
community volunteers trained and supported to respond to families in crisis and ensure the safety of children in their communities
From making a donation, joining the Giving Circle, organising a running challenge with your friends, donating for free while you shop online, to engaging in our work through philanthropy, there are plenty of ways you can help change the way we care for children in Uganda.
