Learnings: Positive Parenting and Care Reform in Kenya

Changing the Way We Care (CTWWC)

Global evidence shows that family strengthening programs increase parent and caregiver knowledge, self-confidence, and competencies around parenting, resulting in improvements for children and families. CTWWC Kenya is supporting families who are at risk of separation and those who have been reunited with their children, by helping parents or primary caregivers access a package of family strengthening support, directly and through referral to existing sources of support.

Positive parenting programs are an important part of this package and are provided together with training in household finance, access to household economic strengthening opportunities, and referrals to other critical services such as child protection and disability support and helping families under stress feel supported and part of their local community.

This brief describes the program and interventions.
