Marang Child Care Network Trust

Equipping NGOs/FBOs/CBOs for the protection and care of Children

About Us

Historical Background

The establishment of the Marang Child Care Network Trust aimed to enhance and support the existing government initiatives in strengthening the technical capabilities of Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) to work effectively with Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC). This decision was driven by the recognition that many NGOs, Community-Based Organizations (CBOs), and Family-Based Organizations (FBOs) often lacked the necessary skills and resources to successfully implement OVC programs. The challenges included a shortage of skilled personnel and financial constraints. Moreover, these organizations struggled to provide ongoing training for their staff, management, and volunteers.


Marang Child Care Network Trust addresses these gaps by actively building the capacities of NGOs, CBOs, and FBOs. This involves comprehensive training programs for their staff and volunteers, as well as coordination efforts to ensure a holistic approach in meeting the needs of OVC.


Functioning as a central coordinating entity for OVC-focused organizations, Marang is dedicated to safeguarding the well-being, protection, and care of OVC through various means, including policy advocacy. Additionally, Marang facilitates the sharing of vital information, networking opportunities, and training initiatives for NGOs, CBOs, and FBOs in critical areas such as policy development, advocacy, organizational enhancement, and the operation of daycare services. Marang also provides tailored interventions that directly address the unique needs of OVC.
