Is Your Business Doing The Right Thing For Children? It’s a really important question to ask. That’s why ReThink Orphanages, a cross-sector coalition (including AVI), has developed a new resource to help those in the travel and volunteering sectors responsibly divest from relationships with orphanages.
The Orphanage Divestment Resources (download from the resources tab)is the result of careful consultation with leaders in tourism, volunteering and child protection. The consultation also involved a number of organisations that have already successfully transitioned away from these relationships.
ReThink Orphanages believes in a world where no child is needlessly separated from their family, and the institutionalisation of children is a thing of the past. This new, readily available and practical resource will help bring us one step closer.
