The world doesn’t need orphanages.
They harm children and they harm society. And shockingly, 8 out of 10 children in orphanages have family members who would care for them – but a broken system hoards money, makes false promises, and keeps children neglected and families exploited.
The majority of those who experience life inside an institution suffer violence, abuse and neglect. Denied the chance to grow up in a family, they’re more likely to become homeless later in life, to have run-ins with the law, and to experience mental and physical health issues.
We work in countries across Eastern Europe, Southern and East Africa and South Asia to stop the institutionalisation of children.
Our goal is to make orphanages history.
