Enhancing Life Chances

Sofronie Foundation searches for effective solutions to the debilitating effects of child poverty, deprivation and neglect. We want to provide opportunities to the most vulnerable children and give them the best chance to learn, grow and thrive.

Education is crucial to a child's future and learning is most successful when a child feels emotionally secure. Every family is different but all children need and deserve carers who love and support them and have their best interests at heart. This is the best possible foundation for their academic development and it is this child-centric approach that forms the heart of Sofronie’s ethos and thinking.

Too many children spend their young lives in an institution, devoid of warmth or love. We are committed to closing the doors of institutions and providing children with alternative, family-based care.

In brief, Sofronie gives disadvantaged children the chance of a fresh start and the opportunity to realise their full potential.
