Don’t you think you’re wasting your time in Africa, as the problem is so big?
Our vision is a world where children no longer suffer orphanage care and our mission is to be the catalyst for the elimination of orphanages everywhere. We know from experience that children can be moved out of orphanages and that the systems can be created that remove the need for these kinds of institutions. We have demonstrated this in Rwanda, Romania and in other countries. Whilst enormous amounts of money are being channelled into orphanages in Africa and other parts of the world, we would always argue that if this money was used to close orphanages and to support families who were at risk of separation, then this would be a far better outcome for the children, the families, the communities and that particular society.
