Families for Children

Evidently the journey towards re integration is a difficulty one often with rough rides along the way because of the complexities around the whole process.

Children who are victims of physical abuse from parents or close relatives loose an attachment bond with them taking them home again to face the same abusers is a tough ride. And that is what CRK Child Care workers must do to ensure a child settles comfortably with the family.

In this season one of the difficulty cases that is still in process involves John* who is 10 years old. John was abused and his hands cut, the issues behind such abuses are often poverty related and parental frustrations. On the first visit our staff were met with coldness and resistance but thanks to the Family Therapy Training that they have undergone currently there is a rapport and the family is settled and handling the matter, but this takes time and often the gains made could be lost but we have always remained steadfast and committed.

We have continued to carry on the activities arround the process and this involves doing outreach on the streets meeting new children, rescuing them that are willing and prepare them for reintergration spending time with children and understanding their issues, making contacts with thier families. Its often a cumbersome process but we are up beat.

Thanks again for believing in our cause and support.

Milestones on Re- Intergration

The 2014 is our transformation year for Liyavo Children Centre . 2014 was to be Child Rescue Kenya year of implementing a family focused approach in addressing issues affecting children that resulted into children running from the safety of their homes to streets. This required that we engage in activities that will see the development of relationships among children and their existing relatives or families that was missing initially. Among the things we did to ensure that we are on the way to success was to have a training on family therapy in the month of March 2014 which all of our members of staff participated in. The Training is tailored to have the staff members re-live their past experiences and then develop from their experiences the best way to handle issues affecting families and children. So throughout this year until now we have engaged 65 families and relatives of children and in the process managed to resettle 101 children with their families. The approach also includes an empowerment component where families come up with income generating initiatives that we support to enable families take care of their children well . Children who came to streets for lack of food are now at home because families have now foods. We have so far managed to cut the street migration cycle greatly with out of 101 children taken home only 7 have come back to the streets. We continue to appeal to our friends and partners to support our cause Many Thanks

New Developments

The children in Liyavo and the entire Child Rescue Kenya are very grateful for your continued support of this noble work.

The Period January to March is normally a very exciting time for children as many of them have to move to new levels in their education and so there is a lot of adjustments many have moved to new classes and sat for end term examinations the results of which are impressive.

In this period too Child Rescue Kenya has undertaken a program aimed at shifting from institutional based care for children to a family focus approach. This approach involves the formation of family units within the centre. The units comprise of a mother and father figure who are there to give a personal care to children within thier units. 

For continuity of this service we also bring in close relations to the children to enlist thier support in the development of an appropriate family, so that the environment of the family is created for children,

This is being done as a strategic shift based on research findings that do not favour institutional care.

once again we thank you for believing in our cause and your continued support
