We believe that children belong in families, not orphanages. We work with governments to introduce local family-based care for disadvantaged children. Care for Children has been at work for 18 years in China and for 5 years in Thailand.
We are working toward moving 1 million children from orphanages into families.
An estimated 8 million children around the world are growing up in institutional care without families. This problem persists despite the fact for over 50 years governments have known institutions consistently fail to meet children's development needs.
Care for Children works with governments in Asia to make the transition from institutional care to family-based care. We provide the tools and training to recruit, access and train suitable foster families. We then help governments place, support and monitor the children. This brings a scalable solution to a massive problem – one we have been working to solve since 1998.
