Children reunited



Children supported within their families

We are always striving towards integrating street children back into their original families. However it must be assured that they can return into a secure environment there. For example if there were only monetary reasons that led to an escape to the streets, we try to support the children within the familiar setting of their relatives so they can pursue their school education from there. In these cases our social workers visit the families regularly in order to make sure that a positive development of the child is guaranteed. Some families are taken care for in a wholesome setting, meaning that they are supported for example in constructing simple trade booths so they can take on responsibility for their children themselves.


Should it not be possible to reintegrate a child into his/her original family, we search for an alternative solution: This can include welcoming a child in one of our homes, direct it to another NGO’s or place it in a foster family. We discuss each single case with the social welfare, who finally takes a decision.




Daniela is in Switzerland till end of August and is looking forward to sharing more about the situation of street children in Ghana and CFC’s positive impact in their lives.  For event details, click here.
