The project, implemented by the NGO AI.BI, aims at promoting an innovative approach towards family and community care in the child protection system for institutionalized children by training and empowering a network on non-state actors from the public and private sector active in the protection of orphan and vulnerable children and in the alternative family care. Moreover, the project intends to sensitize the civil society on the consequences of institutionalization by helping the children to know their rights and promoting social and job inclusion for young care leavers. The needs to be faced are: the lack of knowledge, control and coordination among the institutes, of professional skills, of efficient strategies and methodologies that could foster the family reintegration of the children from the institutes, of support for young care leavers. The strategy of the project is the fruit of an approach based on the rights established in the international conventions, the guidelines of Italian cooperation and the strategic plan of the Kenyan ministry in charge. read more close
