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.
Strategy, 2023 – 2030
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 Impact since 2018
Orphanages were repurposed into community-based services to address the root causes of child separation
Children were transitioned and placed into loving families and community-based alternatives to give them the best childhood
Children were prevented from entering orphanages and separating from their families
Community volunteers trained and supported to respond to families in crisis and ensure the safety of children in their communities
