This is a basic human right, but one which too many children are still denied. There are an estimated 8 million children living in institutions across the globe, robbed of love and the opportunity to fulfil their potential. Many more are at risk of separation from their families due to poverty, conflict and disease.
We work together with children, their families, communities, professionals, NGOs and governments across Central and Eastern Europe and Africa to ensure that institutionalisation is a thing of the past, and that no child has to grow up deprived of the love and care of a family.
We have the expertise and the skills to transform the lives of children trapped in institutions and to prevent the separation of children from their parents when families are at risk of breakdown. We strengthen families, provide family based care for children unable to live at home, close institutions and develop institution-free childcare systems for future generations.
Please contribute your maximum quota to support these children. Thank you in advance.
