“Based on our experiences and years of research, we found out that orphanages are not the best place for children; though they stand as temporary solutions to the interventions for children to have care. Whether they have come out of abusive situations or tragedy struck and the parents died, we need to find a place for them to stay Permanently eventually .”

“Children should not continue to remain in orphanages for five, 10, 15 years but unfortunately we have children in the orphanages across who have remained there for a very long time and we are seeing how that is adversely affecting them. .”
