Case Story of Transition: Sky Ministries

Changing the Way We Care (CTWWC), Sky Ministries

This case story is meant to illustrate transition, the actors involved, the challenges and the success factors; recognizing that each transition is an individual process with different starting points, different dynamics and different evolutions.

The case story complements the Phases of Transition Interactive Diagram by illustrating stages of change. The name and locations have been changed to maintain the anonymity of the organization. The Sky Ministries case story demonstrates the clash between policy and regulatory reforms and donor pressure, and how this clash impacts the transition. 

CTWWC is committed to supporting the transition of residential care facilities such as residential institutions, orphanages and children’s homes by helping to safely reunify and sustain children with families or in family-based alternative care and helping organizations to divest or transform into new family and community services.
