We serve orphanages because we believe every child deserves to thrive, no matter their living situation. Ideally, every child would have the opportunity to live in an environment as close to a family as possible. However, the reality is that orphanages will be part of the sociocultural landscape in most countries for the foreseeable future, and the children who live there deserve the best possible care. That’s where we come in.
How We Select Orphanage Partners
We’re always on the lookout for orphanage directors who, with the proper support, have the potential to create a high standard of care for their kids. Somewhere between the poorest and wealthiest orphanages, there are many “aspiring” orphanages who have demonstrated the desire and the ability to see the children successfully through to adulthood– they simply need a little help to get there.
We partner with orphanage directors who are eager to become better leaders, and we help provide the support and resources they need to fulfill their vision for the kids. The following graphic outlines each phase on the road to certification:
Throughout this process, we encourage the orphanage directors to maintain their existing goals and traditions. We’re not here to tell them what to do, we’re just here to help them do it even better.
We currently partner with 7 orphanages throughout Mexico and Haiti.
Published Orphanage Improvement Roadmaps
An Orphanage Improvement Roadmap is a plan we create alongside the orphanage directors about the vision and goals they have for their home. They can use these documents to give all of their donors and partners an efficient way to collaborate in supporting them. Here are the most recent Orphanage Improvement Roadmaps for each orphanage.
We are currently expanding which means we will have more partners in the future! Check back to learn about our newest orphanage partners.
