Benefits of the Holistic Approach
Along with personal growth and character development, a primary goal of the Vibrant Kids Center is to allow each child to develop and explore as many social opportunities as possible each day.
Finding a Forever Home
Project for change
Start the conversation, Change the story, Create lasting change
Together with our partnerships, we can help replace institutions, creating the vibrant kids program and working with community-based services that provide children access to health, education and social care tailored to their individual needs. Creating thriving childhoods full of hope, life, and love to lead to change on a larger scale.
Although Romania has come a long way in the last 10 years to change the way their government institutions are run, they still have a long way to go.
Per NPR, today 75,000 children are still in Romanian State institutionalized care, and it's believed some 150,000 others are living in the streets. New efforts have been made in the last few years to reintegrate children in the child protection system with their families or foster placement. But the process for disabled children has been limited to none.
The forgotten population of orphans: the children that have disabilities. The 10-year-old whose mother left him because he cannot walk, the baby girl who was left at the hospital because she had no limbs, the autistic child, the children with Downs Syndrome, the children with intellectual disabilities, the little girl with fetal alcohol syndrome. There is nowhere for these kids to go, no educational opportunities, limited social interactions, and limited medical assistance.
Due to the poor economics children in state run facilities live in small house-like buildings, staffing is low (16 children to 1-2 aides) in which most these 16 children per house have a handicap.
