80% of children in orphanages have a living parent.

And most have other family members too - siblings, grandparents, aunts and uncles. But against a backdrop of poverty, orphanages can become magnets that attract families to surrender their children into them.

Children thrive in families, not orphanages.

There's a global movement working to see the 8 million children currently living in orphanages come home to loving families - through family reunification, kinship care, fostering or local adoption.

Robert Glover, CEO, Care for Children

Care for Children works with governments in Asia to develop strategic, sustainable child welfare reforms that offer orphan children safe good families. We stand with Home for Good as we believe that God ordained the family as a safe place that children can thrive through nurture, stimulation and love. The certainty of unconditional love in family membership provides Biblical anchorage and the reassurance of practical and emotional support throughout life.

Save the Children works in 118 countries worldwide. In so many of these contexts, church members and religious leaders play an incredibly important role in the care and protection of children. We are so pleased that Home for Good is launching this campaign as we hope it’s one of many steps needed to work together to help children remain in safe and loving families.

Mark Waddington, Chief Executive, Hope and Homes for Children

Home for Good is one of the most important organisations. Why? Because it believes in family in all its forms. The community of churches that Home for Good works with will be breaking new ground with this campaign because of their belief that family is what children need to grow and develop. Hope and Homes for Children is a leading charity in transforming national childcare and reform, and we fully endorse the latest campaign of our friends at Home for Good.
