Summary

The aim of our campaign is to ensure that children living in orphanages reclaim their rights, and grow up in a family that provides them with the love, care, education, and stability they need. We are working with the Sri Lankan National Childcare Services to close orphanages by developing alternative family care, and a new system that empowers and educates women and girls, and strengthens families.

Challenge

For many parents, their only option is to put their child in an orphanage, due to poverty, discrimination, war or natural disaster. Orphanages are places with higher chances of extreme neglect and abuse, the consequences of these are not just physiological either, there is also evidence of impairment of brain cognition, intelligence, ability to form relationships, and are more likely to abuse alcohol, suffer teenage pregnancy, drug abuse, have depression and commit suicide.

Solution

We help families to bring their children home. We work with international donors, governments, and communities, helping them redirect funds from orphanages to provide health, education and social services in the community, so more children can be raised in loving families. We train professionals to deliver better care and support. We aim to transform social care systems to find ways to stop unnecessary child abandonment.

Long-Term Impact

We are working with the Sri Lankan National Child Care Services to close orphanages by developing alternative family care and a new child care system that will put families first. Through the work of our campaign we will promote parental care and prevent family separation, ensure children are cared for in appropriate settings, make certain that care meets individual children's needs and laws and policies reflect children's best interests.
