Foster Family project report

Dear Friends,

We are pleased to update you on the latest news of the Foster Family Project.

In August, we conducted our regular School for Foster Parents training cycle. A total of 9 people completed the training and get ready to become foster parents. During this quarter, a total of 26 potential foster parents were provided with consultations by the project staff on family placement of children. Over the last 3 month, 5 children from government institutions were placed in foster families. Also, 23 families with 28 foster children have been provided with project support. The most common challenges faced by foster parents were child development and upbringing issues: What should foster parent do if a child refuses to eat? How to support a child if he/she has an emotional crisis or re-enacts past traumatic event? Should foster parent use punishments to stop bad behavior? These and many other issues were addressed by the Project staff.
