About the project ‘Foster care’

The successful development of the service foster care as an alternative of the institutions for children is seen as cornerstone of the reform for the system of cares for the children. The   foster care allows the children without parents care, to grow up in a family environment. The purpose is to receive maximal good care and possibility for development.

The foster care is a social service, which gives a real chance for reducing the number of the children, housed in institutions. It is a part of deinstitutionalization in Bulgaria and has to be combined with services and support to the families, so there are no abandoned children.

The realization of the national campaign aims to increase the sensitivity and the awareness of the society regarding foster care. The successful development of the service foster care as an alternative to the institutions for the children is key element of the reformation of the system of the cares for the children. The foster care allows the abandoned children to grow up at the family environment.
