Orphans into families in Asia



There are 8 million children living in orphanages around the world (UNICEF). Care for Children believes all children need a family. We work with governments in Asia to help place orphans into good, local families - probably the best gift you could ever give a child!

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

In the last 50 years child development specialists have found that "residential institutions consistently fail to meet children's developmental needs" (Families Not Orphanages, 2010) Orphan care in Asia is in urgent need of reform, as many countries lack the knowledge, skills and resources necessary to make the transition from institutional care to family-based care.

How will this project solve this problem?

This is where Care for Children comes in. Care for Children partners with governments in Asia who want to make this transition but lack the tools to see it through. By government invitation, our team of local and international social work experts deliver professional training and support to state-run orphanage staff, empowering them to recruit, assess and train foster carers, as well as place, support and monitor children as they move into good, local families.

Potential Long Term Impact

This project has the opportunity to impact millions of children, and is a significant development in our 'vision for a million' children moved from institutional care into families. We desire to contribute to the development of strong child welfare systems in Asia, giving all orphans the opportunity to grow up in a loving family. We have the unique opportunity to work alongside both senior government and grassroots levels to be agents of this positive transformation.
