Advocacy Tools

Kenya has embarked on a care reform process that is aimed at promoting family and community-based care options and subsequently reducing reliance on institutions (Children’s homes, Orphanages, baby centers etc.) in Kenya.

Here below, find an Animation and Frequently Asked Questions booklet produced by the Association in collaboration with the National Council for Children Services and Department of Children’s Services.

These advocacy tools emphasize the importance of family based care for the care of Orphaned and Vulnerable Children, provide answers to regularly asked questionslist current government efforts including the policy and legal frameworks and existing forms of family and community-based care.
