Summary

In Thailand, there are an estimated 5,000 children growing up in government 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 orphanages located across the country. Decades of research shows that orphanages cannot provide the individualised care, love and attention a child needs to develop and thrive. Largely hidden from their communities and living in very close quarters with other children, the spread of COVID-19 only deepens the needs of this already vulnerable group.

Solution

Our local team travels across Thailand providing training and support in foster care to government orphanages. This enables them to establish foster care 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. "Living in an orphanage is like living in a box - there are so many rules. In a family, there are rules too, but there is also a sense of being free. I've learnt so much from my foster family. They have taught me the skills I need for life." Foster child
