Now Mukisa’s Aunt can care for him, and he’s able to be in a safe and loving family.
Mukisa was thrown in a pit latrine by his biological mother. The government rescued him and brought him to our care for protection.
However, we identified his Aunt, who desired to care for him, but she was not financially stable.

Thanks to the help of donors, we were able to help this family get reunited and keep this family together, along with resources to support self-sufficiency.
The focus of Family-based care is providing the love, nurture, and security that allows a child to thrive through reunification with biological parents, kinship care, foster care, or adoption.
In most cases, kinship care – where extended families take care of children whose parents have died or abandoned them. These family members receive financial support, job training, food, school allowance, health care, and parenting coaching from our staff.
