Every child and young person should live in a supportive, protective and caring environment that promotes his or her full potential.
The United Nations’ Guidelines for the Alternative Care of Children
FAMILY BASED CARE
We are very proud to support partners that are adaptive, innovative and child-centred.
In 2011, our partner in Kathmandu, Asha Nepal, aware of the damaging effects of institutional living took the step of replacing an outdated model of residential care with family-based care homes.
We recognise that rebuilding the emotional well-being, confidence and independence of women and girls exposed to sex trafficking requires consistent, intensive support. So we take a whole-of-person, individualised approach providing five girls, living in one of Asha Nepal’s family-based care homes, with the funding and resources they need to build meaningful futures.
WHAT DOES THE FAMILY BASED CARE INCLUDE?
The rent and living costs of a home close to Asha Nepal’s community centre and the children’s schools
All educational expenses, including school fees and homework tutoring
