Families for Orphans
Tragically, many orphanages across the world are filled with children with family members who cannot care for them due to a lack of economic resources. The Families for Orphans program works through partner organizations to help family members care for their own children. Where family members are not available, we promote policies and programs that place children with substitute foster families or permanent families through domestic and international adoption.

The Acenda Project was created to help the children who did not have any living relatives to return home to. Supportive families were found and given training before their foster child was placed in their care. To date, Acenda has placed 20 children with loving foster families in the Beira and Maputo areas. However, Mozambique is extremely challenged with poverty, and the foster families would not be able to take in an additional orphaned child without support. Acenda offers the foster families training on how to care for an orphan, regular monitoring of the child, and financial support.
