We are determined to have the greatest impact on the lives of the millions of children living without parental care and over the past 10 years we have protected and promoted the rights of thousands of children. However with well in excess of 24 million growing up without the love and safety of their families, we know we have to work together with other organisations to try and ensure no child has to spend the most important years of their life vulnerable and alone.
That’s why EveryChild is collaborating with like-minded organisations to develop a global network called Family for Every Child; a diverse group of hands-on organisations with over 250 years’ combined experience. All members of Family for Every Child share a vision – every child growing up in a permanent, safe and caring family – and the determination to make this a reality.
By sharing expertise and by joining together with one voice we will bring even more lasting and positive change to the lives of vulnerable and marginalised children across the world.

Badri is ten years old and lives in an institution in Georgia. When his parents left to work in Russia he went to live with his older brother. Soon after his brother joined the army and there was no one left to look after Badri. He was taken to live in a nearby institution.
In Georgia EveryChild helped the government with the development of new childcare standards which are now obligatory for all services providing 24-hour care, including residential institutions. These standards are a huge breakthrough in ensuring that basic requirements are met in services for children without parental care, or at risk of losing parental care. The new standards ensure that the rights of children are recognised and that there is greater emphasis on the development of individual children.
