10 Child Care Units (6 for girls and 4 for boys), supported by The Hope Foundation, were established to provide temporary protective shelter for children between the ages of 6 and 18, who are identified as in need of care and protection by the Child Welfare Committee. Vulnerable children, deprived of education and a proper childhood are placed in these Child Care Units to secure their rights to survival and development.

Reuniting children with their families is an important aim of this programme. When children are placed in the Child Care Units, strategies are put in place to strengthen and support their families. The Child Care Units are categorised in the following manner based on the duration of stay and the nature of the services provided.

7 Child Care Units provide care and support to children aged 6years to 18 years for their holistic development.
