Webinar: Care Reform Funding in Light of the Covid-19 Pandemic

Hope and Homes for Children

Hope and Homes for Children presents ‘Institutionalised Children in Asia: Covid-19 and Beyond’; a new series of free webinars focusing on care reform within Asia. Designed for practitioners, policy makers, donors or children and adults affected by institutional care, these webinars will explore how we can make a hugely positive impact in the region for children without, or at risk of being without, parental care.

These free sessions are a timely follow-up to the recent Institutionalised Children Explorations and Beyond (ICEB) international academic journal, which highlighted some of the key elements, challenges and opportunities relating to alternative care for children in Asia.

Webinar 03. Care Reform Funding in Light of the Covid-19 Pandemic

Much funding has been made available and redirected to support vulnerable communities as an emergency response to the Covid-19 pandemic, and we’ll ask what this means for care reform in the short, medium and long term. We’ll also explore what opportunities this presents.

In this third free webinar, three respected and experienced individuals from the donor community will discuss advice and insights from a donor perspective: Nalini Tarakeshwar, Programme Director of Child Protection at UBS Optimus Foundation; Joel Borgström, Programme Manager at World Childhood Foundation; and Paromita Chowdhury, Programme Officer (India Programme) at Oak Foundation.
