About Family For Every Child

Family for Every Child is dedicated to a vision of a world where every child can grow up in a permanent, safe and caring family, supported by temporary, quality alternative care where needed.

Fundamentally we are driven by three strategic goals:

  1. Enabling children to grow up in permanent, safe and caring families, and
  2. Ensuring a range of high-quality alternative care choices
  3. Taking steps to prevent children from having to live outside of any adult care, without the care of families or other carers, and in the interim protecting these boys and girls

We are an Alliance of national member organisations which has grown from a handful of members 4 years ago, to a network of over 43 members in 38 countries around the world.

Although our members all grow independently, they are connected by a shared “root” system, tended to by a small team of Family for Every Child staff (the Secretariat).This makes each member more effective, and the network as a whole more resilient, because together, we’re more than the sum of our parts.

We are therefore seeking candidates based in India, Kenya, South Africa, or the Middle East. The candidate must be able to work in English and, ideally at least one of our other working languages namely Arabic, French or Spanish.
