Adoption Panels

Child’s i Foundation host monthly adoption panels which have been set up to allow professionals in child care to assess potential adoptive and foster parents ensuring that the needs of the child are met.

So far we have had 2 adoption panels where we have considered the applications of 5 prospective families. Although it is early days we have already placed 3 children with new families.

The panels are held once a month and we work alongside the Ministry of Gender and other organisations that promote domestic fostering and adoption. We also work with child psychologists as well as previous adoptive parents.

Caroline Bankusha, Probation & Social Welfare Officer for Kampala City Council, recently spoke about how the Ugandan Government is working with Child’s i Foundation to help promote adoption and find new loving homes for vulnerable children.

Working With The Community

On May 5th 2011, Malaika Babies’ Home held an Open Day for religious representatives.

We are passionate about promoting fostering and adoption to the people of Kampala, and are hoping that working with local churches, mosques and other organisations will enable us to find new families for our children.

We were delighted to see so many people attend our Open Day, and hope that a good time was had by all. Guests got the opportunity to tour our Home with members of our Social Work team, to meet our children, chat to our Project Director Lucy Buck and view a presentation that focussed on issues surrounding adoption and fostering.

Representatives from Malaika Babies’ Home will be speaking to local congregations in the near future, and we welcome new partnerships with any organisation who might be interested in finding out more about the work that we do.
