Online PR News – 21-August-2012 – Provo, Utah, August 19, 2012 – Tom Mower Sr. chooses Whole Child as Sisel International’s cause.

When Tom Mower Sr. saw Karen Gordon on television he reached out to her and asked about her charity and how he could be more involved. Tom Mower Sr. knew that most charities monies raised went to salaries and expenses and few funds actually went to the cause.

Tom Mower Sr. wanted to know if he made donations that the money would be actually used to help the children in orphanages all over the world. After this conversation Tom Mower Sr. decided to get involved in Whole Child and sits on the board and is one of the largest contributors to the organization.

Whole Child International is a U.S.-based non-governmental organization (NGO) founded in 2004. Whole Child focuses on improving the quality of care for vulnerable children worldwide by working within childcare institutions and orphanages.

Collaborating with state and local governments, Whole Child leverages existing childcare systems to build culturally specific infrastructures that afford children the opportunity to fulfill their developmental potential. Whole Child programs are based on the two biggest contributors of inadequate care: caregiver education and training, and organizational structure. Whole Child programs address the “greater risk of psychopathology as well as poor social-emotional and physical development” of institutionalized children. These programs, developed in conjunction with university scientists and policy analysts, target the cycle of abuse and neglect that stems from poor early childhood care. To elevate the quality of care provided to institutionalized children, Whole Child works with existing childcare institutions and implements caregiver education and training, organizational change, and administrative modification. These changes ensure that the children receive nurturing, loving care, and that their emotional and developmental needs are fulfilled.

Whole Child’s model is based on the theories of Hungarian pediatrician Emmi Pikler (1902–1984), the Program for Infant Toddler Caregivers and from the Reggio Emilia approach to Early Childhood Education. The Pikler Institute, in Budapest, Hungary, was founded in 1946 to care for children orphaned and abandoned during the Second World War. Pikler’s methodology involves increasing opportunities for meaningful attachment and bonding between caregiver and child through “continuity of care.”

Continuity of care ensures that children have one consistent caregiver instead of multiple caregivers over a long period of time. It additionally creates of small groups assigned to a single caregiver to replace larger, more chaotic populations randomly assigned to and often non-continuous staff. Research has found that children with secure attachment relationships with their caregivers are more likely to play, explore, and interact with other adults (Raikes, 1996) [2]. Conversely, more frequent changes in caregivers have been reported to be associated with negative child outcomes including high levels of distress (Cryer et al., 2005) withdrawing behaviors and higher levels of aggression later on (Howes & Hamilton, 1993).
