"One area that was particularly difficult was family tracing, Lauer said. But he pointed to the 'real clear evidence' of the positive impact that Catholic nuns in East Africa, who GHR fund in Kenya, Uganda, Zambia, and Malawi, are having. Since 2019, they’ve helped nearly 4,000 children from more than 70 organizations reintegrate back into the community. 'They're having tremendous success. But it's taken three to five years to prepare them to be able to do work on the ground,' Lauer said. 'So we've invested in social work training for Catholic sisters to gain the technical skills, we've invested in child protection training and then, for a lot of the orphanage staff across those institutions, invested in the technical training for case management.'"
