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.

Hope and Homes for Children

Is an international organisation working in partnership with governments and partner NGOs, across 4 continents, to catalyse the eradication of institutional care of children. We work to consolidate political will for reform, to develop the know-how on the transition from institutional care to family and community based care. We build the capacity of the social workforce to support families and children and we help governments to secure funding for transition.

Children in orphanages and those at risk of separation are at the heart of everything we do. Their transition into families and alternative family care is helping us to assist partner Governments to design robust child protection and care systems, effective in preventing children’s separation and providing suitable alternative care for children who need that. Our national teams from Rwanda, Sudan and South Africa are part of the
Transform Alliance.
