There are 8 million children living in institutions around the world. That number is alarming. Ask any child and they will tell you that their biggest dream is to be part of a loving family — it’s where they thrive.
Our “Child First” approach is multi-faceted, collaborative and community-based:
- More than 80% of children living in institutions have a living parent. We make every effort to reunite these children with their birth family, if possible.
- For abandoned children without family — our measurable, systematic method ensures that children are loved, educated, healthy and safe until they transition to a permanent family.
- We actively collaborate with governments, other non-profits and local family-strengthening organizations to transform systems and give children a voice.
