Left Behind

An article by Sophie Arnö in Save the Children's membership magazine "Barn", providing an assessment of the quality of care in childcare institutions in Indonesia, which has one of the highest numbers of children in residential care in the world, the majority of them run by private, mostly faith-based organisations. The article reveals that only a small percentage of the children in residential care are orphans and that more than 90% of the minors have either one or both parents alive, but are trapped in residential care because their parents cannot afford their food, clothes and, most of all, their education.
