Our Core Activities



The organization advocates for the rights of institutionalized children and best practices for their care.

The detrimental effects of institutional care on a child’s well-being are widely documented.  We sensitize the public and stakeholders on the said effects and advocate for the use of family-based care options such as family strengthening, kinship care, adoption, foster care, and guardianship as much more effective in providing care and protection for children.

Sensitization and Awareness Creation

There are a myriad of myths surrounding Alternative Family Care which need debunking through public sensitization. Child in Family Focus – Kenya carries out public sensitization with the aim of creating clarity on all matters Alternative Care as well as the need to keep children in family settings.

The use of faith sector platforms, the media as well as piggybacking on community events and meetings at grassroots levels have been effective forums for our sensitization and awareness creation initiatives.

Second Chances

CFFK reaches out to youth or teens discontinued from sponsorship by children’s homes for various reasons amongst them incidences of truant and deviant behavior.
