We deploy the lessons from our decades of experience to educate local leaders and communities, to change attitudes, to strengthen service programs, and to build the capacity of local advocates and professionals.
We have established training centers in local organizations to be purveyors of best child welfare practice over time. We have helped leaders acquire skills in strategic planning, facilitation, and team building to support local and national initiatives. We have trained and supported local trainers. And we have used competency-based training to create a firm foundation of core level knowledge and skills to underpin a competent work force.
International Capacity Building
From day one, IHS has been committed to a global vision of promoting the safety and well-being of at-risk children and families. A primary focus of our work is helping countries develop family-based alternatives to the institutionalization of homeless and vulnerable children, through stronger community support and prevention services and family-based alternative care.
