Promoting Kafaalah as an Alternative Family Care System within the Muslim Community

Changing the Way We Care (CTWWC)

This short document describes the process of ensuring Kafaalah is considered as a family-based alternative care option within Kenya and the work to promote best practice within the model. It describes the journey of developing a framework and standard operating procedures, beginning with the launch of the Kenyan Guidelines on the Alternative Family Care of Children in 2014.

Changing the Way We Care worked with many partners and shares the learning on Kafaalah through this document. 

Changing the Way We Care is a global initiative implemented by Catholic Relief Services, Maestral International, and other global, national and local partners working together to change the way we care for children around the world.
