About Hope and Homes for Children:

Orphanages don’t protect children, they harm them. Put simply: the last thing an orphanage can provide is the first thing a child needs - someone to love them.

Science shows what we all know, that the bond between a child and their family is vital for their development. Decades of evidence proves that orphanages harm children, subjecting them to high levels of sexual and physical abuse, as well as extreme neglect.

Children always belong in families. They need protection, encouragement, play, laughter and love. They need somewhere to call home and someone to love them. You can help us make this a reality for children.

This is a deeply rewarding role and an exciting time to join us. As the world reels from the impact of Covid, there is increased risk of families experiencing the poverty, lack of support and desperation that drives children into orphanages. There is vital work to be done in ensuring this does not happen.

If you believe every child belongs in a family, join us as we consign orphanages to history

To apply, please upload your CV and short cover letter, indicating why you’re interested in joining us. Please keep your cover letter to no more than 500 words in total.
