Summary

In Thailand, there are an estimated 4,500 children growing up in government-run orphanages. This project will enable these orphanages to develop family placement programmes, whereby they can move children out of the orphanage and into local foster families where they will be nurtured to reach their full potential.

Challenge

In Thailand, there are an estimated 4,500 children growing up in the 20 government-run orphanages located across the country. If privately run institutions are included this figure is likely to be in the tens of thousands. It has been internationally recognised that children thrive in family-based care, and that although orphanages can meet children's basic needs, living within a family is most beneficial for children's well-being and their development.

Solution

Our local team travels across Thailand providing training and support in family placement to government-run orphanages. This enables them to establish family placement programmes, whereby children are moved out of the orphanage and into local foster families. The goal of our training is to ensure staff from each orphanage are fully confident in recruiting and training foster carers from the local community, as well as placing, supporting and monitoring children as they move into families.

Long-Term Impact

This project has the potential to impact 4,500+ orphaned and abandoned children across Thailand, 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 in the community being abandoned and placed into orphanages in the first place.
