Child Separation Crisis
Together we can restore family
Thousands of charities in Kenya are working to support at-risk children and families. Many charities are struggling with the changing laws and regulations, funding issues due to COVID-19, and lack of knowledge and skills to meet the need of their communities. Our partners reunite children with their families, practice family-based care, and work with trauma-informed practices.

Your guide to better care and bigger impact
Over the years, we have worked with and as, frontline social workers, counselors, caregivers and leaders of charitable children's institutions (CCIs) in Kenya. We are now putting that experience to work by building innovative solutions to help Charities make a bigger impact and provide better care for vulnerable children and families.
Although this work isn't complicated, it presents challenges that even the most seasoned charities find themselves looking for help. We offer charity support services to help organizations overcome these challenges quickly and effectively. Through our training, mentoring, and consulting services we can help you to keep administrative costs in check while helping streamline operations so you can focus on building a future for your community.
Collaborating with others in this work can be demoralizing. Broken relationships and unnecessary competitive relationships between organizations can reduce community impact for everyone. Healthy collaborative relationships can radically transform a community and improve the effectiveness of everyone involved. We work to build, support, and grow localized networks of care in order to maximize impact in the community.
Too often, frontline social workers, counselors, teachers, pastors, and other caregivers are under-employed, underpaid, and under-trained. We work to train these practitioners with the latest alternative family care models and build systems of support through peer mentoring and training of trainers.
The needs of children and families are changing at a rapid rate. COVID-19 is outpacing HIV/AIDS in the growing number of orphans globally, rates of violence and abuse are growing, and the legal framework for child protection is changing. We are a learning first organization. We seek to understand what models are working and why.
