“Child’s I Foundation is truly leading the way in the care of orphans, in the care of abandoned children and those at risk of being abandoned. Lucy Buck and her dedicated, committed staff believe that children should not be raised in institutions.
I think this is a very big departure in the way children are looked after here in Uganda. Rather, they believe abandoned children and orphans should be raised in the loving homes of Ugandans. It may be obvious, it almost need not be said. Yet, in the context of large impersonal institutions which dominate childcare provision in this country where we’ve seen orphanages after orphanages being established. Child’s i Foundation have this wonderful, beautiful philosophy of raising children in Uganda in loving Ugandan homes.”
