Mission Statement

Global Family Care Network was established with the belief that long-term alternative care for at-risk and abandoned children is best practiced within the structure of a family. The organization’s focus is currently in India, Nepal and Myanmar with efforts to be launched in the US and Canada in 2014. Our model is supported by numerous studies indicating that family care, in lieu of institutional care, provides the best possible outcome for children with respect to their social and psychological development as well as their economic success. Global Family’s shelter homes accommodate children who find themselves in vulnerable situations. Each child’s physical and psychological needs are met before being restored back with their families or placed in long-term family care.

Description

Global Family U offers hands on experiences to college students and post-graduates as they engage with a rising non-profit organization, changing the way that alternative care, human trafficking, and social entrepreneurship are understood. Available positions are both overseas and at home, with projects specifically geared towards students enrolled in colleges and universities. Our goal is for interns to work on projects that will support the evolution and success of Global Family’s programs.
