Child’s i Foundation (CiF)
In Uganda, more than 50,000 children are growing up in orphanages. Nearly all have family. Orphanages make orphans out of children. Every day, families are forced to give up children in the promise of a better life. Children lose their childhoods and their life chances.
Child’s i Foundation helps children return to families by rebuilding family support systems. We work with partners to create foster care networks that keep children out of orphanages. We help repurpose orphanages into services that meet local needs: preventing family separation, reuniting families or placing children with safe adoptive parents. We work with the Government to build the capacity of a national social workforce across Uganda, and help a nation reimagine the care of its most vulnerable citizens.
At Child’s i Foundation we make families, not orphans.
