Relative Support Programme

Monthly distribution of food is an essential element of the Relatives Support Programme

We place the orphans who come to us within their extended family whenever possible. When we are able to locate family members who are willing and able to take the child in, the family joins our Relatives Support Programme.

Members of the Relatives Support Programme bring the foster children to our Reception Home in Dar es Salaam once a month to collect packages of staple foods, toiletries and sometimes clothing. This is an opportunity for foster parents to meet each other and for our staff to assess the children. A second opportunity to monitor the children takes place with a monthly visit to their homes. Our staff check that the children are being well treated, are healthy and are prospering at school.
