Family Power together is not an isolated initiative. We are an inspiring and activating part of a larger international movement. Together we want to bring about a change. A change to care for vulnerable children in their own family and community. Family Power sees this Movement as an open partnership with national and international network partners. Our approach is based on practice and 'being the change'. This allows Family Power to have a role as an innovative catalyst in the Movement.
There is positive collaboration consultation with Wilde Ganzen, Partin, Better Care Network Netherlands (BCNN), Radboud University, Dutch Coalition on Disabilities and Development (DCDD), Family for Every Child and Transform Africa Alliance. All are willing to facilitate Family Power and play an important role within the project as advisors. A nice foundation for further cooperation!
Research to orphanage tourism
According to the recently published research report on orphanage tourism commissioned by the Dutch government, private initiatives are partly responsible for maintaining institutions. Family Power wants to show how this sector certainly can offer family-based care and communicate about this in an inspiring way. An action that is fully in line with the recommendations in the report. Family Power would like to come to a joint approach with the Dutch network partners.
Our Family Power team originated from the Pledge Group Every Child a Family. We invite other private initiatives to join the Pledge as well!
