Fairstart Foundation cover
Mission Our mission is to improve professional competencies of caregivers for children without parental contact.

More than 100 million children and youth grow up without parental care. Their caregivers are often underpaid, not supported much by government and have no access to quality care education.

FairstartGlobal is combining knowledge of a global network of researchers. Our training programmes are designed by child psychologist Niels Peter Rygaard and have been tested in a two year European Union project in 12 countries by children's homes and foster family organisations.

FairstartGlobal offers a non-profit online-based education curriculum with fifteen staff and leader training sessions – covering all basic aspects of quality child care illustrated by texts and videos. Volunteer researchers worldwide have contributed to the design.

Founded 4 June 2012
Products 3 free online training programmes targeted at:
- caregivers in institutions

An online instructor education is soon to be available on the education platform EdX.
