Welcome to ONETrack International
The mission is to promote proper orphan-care solutions by encouraging our Transition to Home approach to family reunification. We work to uphold, introduce and train globally-recognized international laws and standards that protect an orphaned child’s rights to be raised by biological relatives, or other suitable providers, within their communities of birth in situations where it is practical and appropriate.
We advocate and practice these principles at both the community and global levels by supporting and advising organizations that work with parentless and vulnerable children around the world.
Our vision is a world in which all orphaned children have the opportunity to grow as a member of a family, receive proper educations and healthcare, as well as one in which orphanages and international adoption are reserved as an important function for those cases without other options.
Why We Do It
There are currently an estimated 150 million children worldwide who have been orphaned by a variety of tragic circumstances. Sadder still is that most of these children have been harmed by a second injustice and many are unnecessarily suffering in overcrowded and under-resourced institutions. ONETrack International believes that the responses to this crisis need to be reassessed and better solutions need to be put in place!
That is why we work hard to promote the Transition to Home alternative that places parentless children in the homes of biological family members within their villages of birth (in cases where orphaned children still have surviving relatives).
We have proven this system as a successful practice in our projects in West Africa via our CameroonONE programs and have now expanded to introduce our approach to other communities across the globe.
How We Do It
The ONETrack International team has ten-years of experience in alternative orphan-care techniques, having initially proven our approach a success with our groundbreaking CameroonONE In-Home Sponsorship projects.
At the village-level, ONETrack International provides for orphaned children by removing them from their overcrowded and under-resourced orphanages and placing them in the households of biological family members.
ONETrack provides for all their education, health needs and caretaker support, and in a conflict context, provides for separated children by keeping the remaining family members together and removing them from collective institutions (such as refugee camps) to private homes.
Reunification is the process in which orphaned or abandoned children are reintroduced into the home and community of their family of origin.
ONETrack International is dedicated to the transitioning of orphaned children from over-crowed and under-resourced institutionalized care back into family environments.
The Benefits of Caretaker Support
Our In-Home Child Sponsorship program is designed to support both an orphaned child as well as his or her surviving relatives.
Where We Work
What originally started as a project in Cameroon via CameroonONE, the Transition-to-Home orphan care initiative is now being used in several countries around the world.
It takes a global village to ensure all orphaned children have the opportunity to grow as a member of a family, receive proper education and healthcare.
