What is Family Care First?
In 2014, USAID launched Family Care First, a global initiative that seeks to uncover and advance transformational solutions that considerably reduce the number of children growing up outside of safe, nurturing, family-based care.
What is Family Care First Cambodia?
Family Care First Cambodia (FCFC) is a group of global and community partners across all sectors committed to increasing the percentage of children living in safe, nurturing and family based care. Guided by the collective impact model for structured, multi-sector collaboration, FCFC partners are working together to build both the trust and evidence required to more strategically and collectively contribute toward the shared vision of safe, nurturing family based care for every child in Cambodia.
The work of Family Care First Cambodia is governed by the following three equally essential cross-sector working groups:
- Technical Working Group for Implementation (TWGI): Comprised of 30-40 leaders of the non-profit, government, civic, business, academic and faith sectors, the TWGI is charged with both shaping and implementing FCFC’s framework for strategic action.
- Knowledge Sharing Working Group (KSWG): Comprised of 10-15 international and local experts in research, data and evaluation, the KSWG is charged with both collecting and using data to inform the direction and assess the impact of FCFC.
- Donor Steering Group (DSG): Comprised of 8-10 resource partners, the DSG is charged with providing overall strategic direction and mobilizing resources to meet FCFC identified resource needs.
Family Care First Cambodia’s strength lies in the commitment and support of its diverse membership and only collectively can its partners have the desired impact on the lives of children living without safe, nurturing family based care.
