Our COVID-19 Response

Today, more than ever, children need safe and loving families. Together we can keep families and children safe during and beyond this crisis.

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.
