We mobilise Family Networks around vulnerable children and their parents to co-create safety and/or empowerment plans that ensure the ongoing welfare of children. A Family Network is a committed group of people who are naturally connected with the child – they consist of extended family, neighbours, family-friends, teachers, coaches, and anyone else who cares about the child's welfare.
Our model of preventative child protection empowers vulnerable families, preventing children from being exposed to harm, trafficked and ending up in orphanages.
Our model is community-led. It places families in the driving seat, empowering them to identify their own solutions and raise their children well. We mobilise family and community networks to support families, equipping them to meet the challenges in their lives.
Our model is holistic. It addresses problems as a whole, allowing a tailored approach in each village. We bring support services directly into communities to ensure that families struggling with poverty, disability or illness never resort to placing their children in an orphanage.
