OUR PRIORITIES

 

Mwana Villages sets forth a holistic model of ethical orphan care.

ORPHANHOOD PREVENTION

The global orphan crisis is nuanced and complex. Many vulnerable children have a family unit that is fragile. These children are at risk of becoming orphans due to poverty, illness or cultural realities.

REUNIFICATION FIRST

The cyclical nature of the orphan crisis will be broken only when we prioritize family preservation and reunification. We then support vulnerable families toward self-sufficiency as a means for orphanhood prevention.

ADOPTION WHEN NEEDED

Only when family reunification is not possible or safe, we seek loving adoptive families for the children in need.
