- Research. GHR partner Better Care Network presented preliminary findings to the working group on living situations of vulnerable children in Zambia. The research found that 17 percent of Zambian children do not live with parents, though for a majority of these children, both parents are living.
- Results. Bethany Christian Services, a GHR demonstration grantee in Zambia, has recruited 85 potential foster or adoptive families. Many of these families have completed assessments and several children have been placed in foster care.
- Connections. GHR’s Children in Families and Sister Support staff spent time in Zambia and Uganda exploring potential connections between initiatives. Program staff are exploring ways to equip sisters with the skills necessary to navigate the movement towards family care.
We are pleased to collaborate with organizations around the world to achieve the objectives of our Children in Families Initiative as we work to realize a more promising future for all children. To learn more about GHR’s approach to supporting children and families, contact us.
