San Salvador Department
Description of Whole Child International:
Whole Child International’s mission is to improve the quality of care that vulnerable children receive. Our systems-based, comprehensive program prioritizes the social-emotional well-being of children in a spectrum of settings ranging from orphanages, to limited-resource childcare centers, to foster and kinship care. We provide knowledge, skills, and tools to local universities, social workers, center directors, government ministry employees, and other stakeholders whose optimal functioning is critical to sustainable change across the childcare system.
In 2017, after 13 years of program development and rigorous evaluation in a highly underserved area of global development, Whole Child successfully secured a $3 million unrestricted gift to fund our next phase of growth. Having completed a formal strategic planning process, we are currently beginning an aggressive five-year phase to complete program development and evaluation and to create the infrastructure needed for growth to reach millions of children worldwide.
