Why Funding for Orphanages is Harming the Children it Aims to Help
Donors and policymakers can do more to help vulnerable children by investing in family and community support programs rather than institutional care. Therefore, ECFG has developed infographics, policy briefs and social media cards to:
- Highlight that funding for orphanages is harming the children it aims to help; and
- Encourage investment in family and community support programs.

"The grantmaker world can be very lonely. We know what our team is doing but it takes an extra effort to find out what other funders are doing. Elevate Children provides that space to interact with others, discuss areas of opportunity and collaboration, identify common partners and share a common vision."
