Challenge

In China, there are an estimated 90,000 children growing up in government-run orphanages located across the country, the majority of whom have disabilities. Children living within institutional care are among the most vulnerable in the world. Decades of research show that institutional care simply cannot provide the one-to-one care, love and attention a child needs for healthy development.

Solution

Our local team travels across China providing training and support in family placement to government-run orphanages. This enables them to establish or expand family placement programmes, which means they can move children out of the institution and into local foster families. Our goal is for these staff to be fully confident in being able to recruit, assess and train suitable foster carers from the local community, as well as place, support and monitor children as they move into families.

Long-Term Impact

This project has the potential to impact 90,000+ orphaned and abandoned children across China, giving them the chance to grow up within local, loving families where they will be nurtured to reach their full potential. By helping orphanages to develop new services according to the needs of the community i.e. special needs education or physiotherapy, the project also has the potential to prevent children from being placed into care in the first place.
