MISSION & HISTORY.
Global Family Care Network is a non-profit organization that works to prevent and intercept child trafficking and systematic abuse and provide long-term and family-based care for children who are victims of commercial sexual exploitation and other forms of abuse.
Our mission is to preserve the family and protect at-risk children with the assistance of community organizations, volunteer caregivers, and donors. Our vision is to help as many children as possible who are victims of poverty, exploitation, and abuse by modeling and sharing principled methods that represent the best possible outcome.
Collectively, our model projects are active in nine countries with 304 global team members.
WHAT WE BELIEVE.
We believe In community-based solutions to child protection and family strengthening. We equip local community organizations to find solutions using their own assets to protect children from exploitation and abuse. A strong family is our most effective tool of protection and prevention. Preserving the family unit is crucial for the safety of children and the wellbeing of the community.
At the heart of our work is the belief and conviction that each of these girls is as precious as our own daughter. For this reason, we place our greatest emphasis on prevention. We want to protect these daughters from being at risk, taken, lured away, and abused.
Our approach is holistic and asset-based. We consider the need for awareness education, economic development, rescue intervention, and long-term care of girls. We work with local authorities, community based organizations, and volunteers to prevent and intercept the spread of trafficking, and to restore young girls back to their families.
Global Family incorporates evidence-based approaches to preventing trafficking and abuse, strengthening families and communities, providing services to victims of commercial sexual exploitation, and training caregivers. Our approaches are consistent with published and peer-reviewed studies, which we consistently review and incorporate.
