Why We Cannot Deinstitutionalize all Orphanages…

We cannot deinstitutionalize all orphanages without having systems in place to ensure that these children do not get left behind. There are also many good orphanages that are homes: the caretakers truly care for the children, there is space to play, pets, storytime, and children are allowed to visit their families when possible. Whether they are true or social orphans, the fact remains that these homes often serve as intermediary places where children can be fed, attend school, and be safe from the streets.
