The Elevate Children Funders Group is seeking a consultant to conduct a funding stream analysis in three low-income countries (Cambodia, Nepal, and Uganda) in order to get a clearer understanding for the role private and government funding plays in promoting (versus discouraging) different forms of family and alternative care and whether current funding streams are in line with international standards, mainly the UN Guidelines for Alternative Care.

Does funding act as a driver of institutional care?
