… the child, for the full and harmonious development of his or her personality, should grow up in a family environment, in an atmosphere of happiness, love and understanding.

— UN Convention on the Rights of the Child

We’re helping children a-risk of growing up institutions, and those living in institutions, to grow up in loving families by:


Keeping Families Together

We help struggling families to care for their children so they never have to turn to an orphanage for help.


Reuniting Families

We rescue children from orphanages, and help them to return home to their parents or extended families.


Foster Families

When children can’t be cared for by their birth families, we work to find them loving foster families.


Suubi’s Story - Foster Family

Suubi was just a baby when he was abandoned He was so severely malnourished that he was unable to sit up or open his eyes.

He had to spend three months in the hospital, where he received lifesaving medical care, and gained weight and strength.

He was supposed to be discharged to an orphanage, where he would have spent his days in silence, in a baby room.

Instead, our social work team intervened, and matched him with a loving foster family.

Today, Suubi is thriving.

He has a mother, father and four big siblings, who love to pay with their little brother. And he adores his foster father, and is always by his side.

Supporting Children in Families

The children we work with are vulnerable for many reasons. Many are struggling with poverty, disability or family crisis. We support them with social services, such as education, medical care and counselling.
