We bring together all the operatives involved: orphanages, governmental and non-governmental agencies, ministries, etc., in educational and supportive programs that will improve outcomes for the vulnerable populations being served, including:

.  Social and Protective services,

.  Health and Nutritional support programs,

.  Access to Lifelong Education,

Participants in Future Planning


We will create awareness of the real   needs of orphanages, as a distinct   subset of the general population, with   it’s own set of needs, to be integrated   into all governmental planning activities   that will impact them.

We will participate in educational   conferences, conventions, congresses,   etc., that reflect on those outcomes.

 

Advocate for the Children


We recognize the priority to reunite families that have become separated.

However, as professional Orphanages, we will impartially determine whether each individual family-based (kinship) option is actually in the best interest of each child, on a case-by-case basis.

If it is determined that the kinship option is viable, then the Orphanage will encourage the use of counseling to the prospective family unit to help integrate the child.

Alternatively, when there are no realistic options at hand, the orphanage will recommend that the child be retained by his/her acting orphanage “family.”
