Because children belong in families, not orphanages

UNICEF estimates, there are 17,900,000 orphans who have lost both parents and are living in orphanages or on the streets and lack the care and attention required for healthy development.

A report by UNICEF (2010) indicates that in Ghana, there are about 1,100,000 orphans. Out of that number, 160,000 are children that have been orphaned by HIV/AIDS. The number of orphans in Ghana keeps increasing each year. It is clear from the statistics that the growing number of orphans in Ghana, the available number of orphanages clearly is unable to provide accommodation for all orphaned children.

Research has shown that the emotional, social and physical development of young children has a direct effect on their overall development on the adults they become
Orphans and vulnerable children are a growing population and it is urgent that their short and long term psychological needs are cared for (Abehe, 2005).

According to The Gospel Coalition, Children raised in orphanages have an IQ 20 points lower than their peers in foster care, according to a meta-analysis of 75 studies (more than 3,800 children in 19 countries).
