In Romania, there is an ongoing process to deinstitutionalize large rezidential centers for children and integrate them into small, foster care houses, into society. This process is financed by institutions such as the European Union. The main objective is to improve the situation of the children and teenagers that are living in large residential centers. They must not be closed down before there are better alternatives for children and teenagers. These solutions include reintegration with their families (where possible), placement with a professional maternal assistant or in small scale residential services (family like houses or apartments).


We built the e-Cuib system together with the World Bank to help with the process of deinstitutionalization of these centers, in Romania. The first step in this process is closing down the large residential centers for children and at the same time to create, develop and consolidate new social services and family-like (foster care) residential alternatives. For this project, we had to collect huge amounts of data, on different dimensions, such as children data (medical, social, family, education), residential center data (current situation, personnel), establish the closing down plan (steps, financial data). The next step has been to automate the process as much as possible: pre-fill information and remove redundancy.


The World Bank, and their partners, had the objective to generate a comprehensive and complete closing-down plan that includes reports about the current situation in the large residential centers and the children living there. The e-CUIB platform takes advantage of technology to implement a software product that benefits the users of e-CUIB: residential center supervisors, residential center personnel and also data collection consultants, by simplifying and accelerating the data collection process. The software automatically generates the closing down plan (~400 pages), together with complete and comprehensive reports about the residential center and the children living there. About 3,500+ children have been evaluated.
