Throughout the world, children without parental care need a safe and
caring family-like environment, in addition to materially sufficient orphanages.
Through over a decade of work in Russia, Central America, and most recently
China, OCD has found that it is possible to provide family-like care and
environments within the walls of orphanages. We have been engaged in various
efforts, with partners like UNICEF, USAID, and other NGOs, to both understand
the needs and challenges of children without parental care around the world and
to promote and evaluate efforts to seek alternatives to traditional orphanage
