Children belong in families,
not orphanages

Together we Stared at the Moon

An estimated eight million children still live in institutions across the world. Deinstitutionalisation involves strengthening and developing services to prevent children being separated from families. It involves closing down institutions; including children in society and in their communities; and giving them their right to a family. This film is about the people who know that there is an alternative to institutional care, and who are working hard to make it happen. These are their stories, in their own words.
