Our Model of Alternative Care
We believe that every child should know the love of a family. Many children, especially girls in Sri Lanka and Nepal are abandoned or relinquished by their mothers to orphanages, mostly through poverty, in the belief that they will have a better life and a better future. Siblings are separated by age and gender and forced to live without the love of their family which has a devastating effect on their development and outcomes are poor. Our experience of working with institutionalised children and the damaging effects has enabled us to develop a model of alternative care.
