What is an Orphanage Home?

An orphanage is an institution that takes care of orphans. An orphanage will care for tiny babies and also older children without parents. Orphanages care for children until they can be placed in homes and adopted.

How Can I Start an Orphanage Home in Nigeria?

  • You need a Standard Housing facility
  • It may owned by you or its a rented property, just ensure that the location of your orphanage home is free from external and internal threats. This is because the safety of the children should be put into consideration while choosing a place, this include; emotional, psychological, physical, intellectual, and academic safety. Your facility should be leveled and not prone to flooding or any other natural and man-made disaster.
  • Register your Orphanage Home with the Necessary Governmental Bodies
  • Meet all the regulatory bodies that are important to meet (you need to carry out research on this from existing orphanage homes), pay all the stipulated fees before you start. This will place your home on the lips of the agency should there be a grant for orphanage homes. There are so many orphanage homes that have been termed illegal just because due registrations were not carried out.
  • Know how to Get Investors
  • Apart from the free will gifts that people give to orphanage homes, some reputable organizations within and outside the country contribute immensely to orphanages. Search the internet, you’ll see some of them. This is something you should also learn while learning from an existing orphanage. An orphanage home ultimately gives out most of its children for adoption by those who don’t have children or those who just want to have an adopted child in their home.
  • Be Financially Boyant
  • As your orphanage gets popular, a lot of philanthropists will begin to give voluntary donations to help you take care of the children but first of all, you need to be able to foot the bills that will give the children a comfortable life; something close or better than what they would have had if they had been at home.
  • Get Adequate Training
It does not matter if you studied a course in school that focused on training children or not, you still need the experience of those who have been in the operation of orphanages for the maximum success of your own. These people have gone through experiences you will not even imagine so it is compulsory that you undergo the training by becoming a volunteer staff. You can also take advantage of YouTube classes and other online mastery classes.
