Take Action: Support the REPLACE Campaign
There are many ways you can take action to make a real difference in the lives of millions of children in orphanages and the many millions more who are at risk of entering them.
The REPLACE Campaign relies entirely on your donated funds. Without your support, none of the work we do would be possible and millions of children will continue to be damaged by orphanages.
Every day, more children are entering the system. Every day, children are desperate to return to their families. Your funds will help us drive the message home to millions of people around the world that institutional care is not an acceptable form of child care.
Together we will reach out to individuals, organisations and governments, helping them adopt better systems of child care. With your help, we can come closer to seeing an end to all orphanages worldwide.
The REPLACE Campaign is run by International Child Campaign, a non-profit organisation, registered with the Charity Commission in England, number 1145731. To support the campaign, simply click the 'Keep Caring and Donate Now' button.

Donate your time and expertise as a volunteer
We currently have a number of general internet research projects that you can help us with from your own home. You can contribute as much or as little time as you wish. These projects do not require specialist skills; just a willingness to help, perseverance and attention to detail.
If you have specialist skills, such as communications, graphic design, legal, accounting, campaigning, teaching, translating, fundraising or financial skills, please let us know. If we can't use your skills directly, we will know of someone who can.
Campaign and spread the word
When you hear, or read, about people or organisations raising funds for orphanages, please encourage them to support positive, long-term solutions instead:

- Tweet about us on Twitter
- Keep up to date with the campaign on our news section and follow it through the RSS-Atom link.
Promote child rights
Our work is based on the freedoms, rights and duties as detailed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Convention on the Rights of the Child. One way to help is to read the convention and become more aware of the issues and abuses that are happening every day.
