Around 80% of children growing up in institutions have living relatives and are not ‘orphans’.
We make it our job to try and trace the children’s families and resettle them safely back into their families. In fact around 66% of children admitted to Malaika are reintegrated back into their extended family. Watch the video of Michael and how we found his family.
If we are unable to find their families our aim is to find them new homes. We are delighted to share the story of a George and Desire who adopted baby Joey.
Child’s i Foundation has established a monthly Adoption Panel chaired by the Ministry in charge of Children’s Affairs – the first of it’s kind in Uganda. The panel’s purpose is to independently approve the families our team assess and match children to families.
Please support us in the long term to help us make more families, not orphans by signing up to a regular gift.
