Forget Me Not Australia Limited

Rescue Crew

Alisha’s grandmother said it was as if gold had been laid at her feet when Forget Me Not reunited their family after 8 years of separation.

Highly skilled teams trek to the farthest rural and remote communities, searching high and low for the bloodlines of children stolen from their families. However you couch the process, children continue to be removed from their families under the false pretenses of receiving the 'golden opportunity' of an education with the 'platinum promise' they'll return home and liberate their families and communities.

Our Team build trusting relationships with each 'rescued' child, so they feel safe and supported throughout the entire rescue and reunification process. As we uncover information from the child's own memories of their homes and families and scour official records, we begin tracing the families in villages throughout Nepal.

Shakti Ghar (House of Power) is our transition home for children in the process of reintegration. The children staying here are safe and secure in a loving environment. They are provided with excellent education, medical care, psychosocial support, nutritious food, and attentive and dedicated caretakers.

We never, ever give up searching for families for these children, because every child matters.

Once we locate the families, we begin the process of reconnection. Before first introduction we talk with the family to better understand the original reasons why the child was displaced. Once we are confident that the reconnection will not put the child at risk, we facilitate the child meeting their family.

We are very careful to ensure the safety of the child each step of the way. After this initial meeting, the families begin to rebuild their relationships through phone calls and visits. A series of assessments are conducted over time to analyse the optimal case management for each child – whether that is full reunification, kinship care or another alternative.

We support families to raise their children to be thriving, vibrant and connected to family, community and opportunity.
