Prakas on Procedures to Implement Kinship Care and Foster Care

Ministry of Social Affairs, Veterans and Youth Rehabilitation (MoSVY) - Kingdom of Cambodia

The Goal of the Prakas is to ensure the best interests of the child and protect the basic rights of the child separated from his/her biological parents and receiving kinship or foster care, so that they are safe and thriving in a warm, loving and happy family environment. The Prakas aims to set principles, procedures, rights, conditions, roles and responsibilities of relevant competent ministries, institutions, entities and service providers to implement kinship care or foster care, complementing Prakas No. 2280 MoSVY dated 11 October 2011 on procedures to implement the Policy on Alternative Care for Children. The scope of the Prakas covers formal kinship care and foster care arrangements for orphans, child victims and vulnerable children who are under the oversight of MoSVY.
