Statement on orphanages:

The Nadia and Alf Taylor foundation appreciates the need for orphanages around the world and strongly believes in supporting those who are most vulnerable. However, we also recognise the adverse impacts that are linked to the institutionalisation of children as well as the exploitation that can occur in this area.

With this in mind, we will continue to support organisations that have orphanages/children’s home as part of their intervention process but only if there is a proven track record that identifies the re-integration of children back into their community as a priority and only incorporates institutional residential care as a short-term option of last resort.

While we understand the good intentions behind taking care of orphaned children, we value a long-term preventative approach to serving these children’s needs.
