Launching the 20/20 Campaign

To mark Universal Children’s Day, Each Inc. is very proud to launch the 20/20 Campaign: An innovative effort, starting the week of November 20, 2013, to positively impact 20 lives, with the collective power of your support.

THE YEAR – It’s been an exciting second year for Each Inc. and our 20/20 vision to provide technology support to organizations working with vulnerable children, globally.  After sharing a demo of our data management systems in East Africa last year, we were encouraged by the excitement it generated.  Securing funding for a full pilot, however, has been a challenge.  Happily, we are about to begin the first pilot of our digital case management tool with a client non-profit organization in Guatemala.

THE PROJECT – This pilot project includes customizing technology to provide an improved data management system for social workers to use as they move young children out of the largest government orphanage in Guatemala City (the ‘City of Children’) into foster families, who will provide each of them a safe family environment.   The toxic stress created in an institutionalized child, especially a young one whose brain is rapidly developing, is a serious health issue that has destructive long-term consequences.  Any child suffering the lack of a consistent caregiver with whom they can bond may experience severe developmental delays, and a lack of family support makes them more vulnerable to violence, exploitation, trafficking, and crime as they grow into adulthood. Early intervention and placement into family care can prevent abuse and dramatically improve the life prospects for each child.
