Life growing up in an orphanage is the reality for hundreds of thousands of children around the world. Children may live within these settings for several months, years, or even an entire childhood.  They all deserve the opportunity to grow into adults with self-respect, who are capable of achieving their dreams and the feeling of compassion for one another. Infants and young children reared in institutions without experiencing secure attachment and appropriate stimulation become destined for a lifetime filled with disappointments, anger and violence. The cruel reality of most orphanage caregivers within developing countries is that they provide only the most basic daily care, while neglecting emotional needs of children.

our-future depends on children having the opportunity to reach their optimal healthy development. Research clearly indicates that the relationships between a child and his or her caregivers, creates the foundation for the child’s future.  It is only through respectful and responsive care that children have the chance to reach their full potential.

While orphanage administrators and caregivers have the best intentions for the children in their care, they are seldom offered the opportunity to participate in programs which enhance their knowledge and skills. These appropriate programs result in a caregivers’ ability to provide children with the foundation they need to become contributing, empathic members of their communities. LKF Global programs make this possible for orphanage staff, by furnishing the caregivers with innovative ways to incorporate healthy nurturing and care during the simplest of daily activities.  Caregivers learn how to provide for both the emotional and developmental needs of children who have been abandoned and orphaned.

specialized versions of LKF Global’s culturally sensitive curriculum are being used with parents, healthcare staff, and caregivers in numerous residential settings and orphanages.  Our programs have many positive outcomes including:

  • Prevention of child abuse and neglect
     
  • Increased reliance on non-corporal discipline methods
     
  • More responsive care giving practices
     
  • Enhanced family and group functioning
     
  • More realistic expectations for children
     
  • Improved child health, including developmental outcomes
     
  • More parental/caregiver support for early learning
