The UN Calls For The End Of Orphanages
December 2019

In a historic move on December 18th 2019, all 193 member states of the United Nations have formally recognised that orphanages don’t protect children, they harm them, and have called for the progressive elimination of institutional care globally.

Supporters of the Nasio Trust will be aware that our proven model of caring for disadvantaged children in a family-like environment (using a network of amazing Nasio guardians) is a direct reaction to the harm caused by institutionalised care.

It’s incredible news (and a wonderful Christmas gift) that will bring amazing long term benefit to children all over the world.
