Deinstitionalization: Mitigating Pitfalls & Maximizing Potential (CAFO Member Organizations Only)

Deinstitutionalization is a hot topic around the world as countries move to connect the orphaned and vulnerable in family environments, rather than large group care. More than a workshop, this is an honest discussion and a call for unity as ministries work together to provide appropriate care for all orphaned and vulnerable children as deinstitutionalization becomes a reality in more countries around the world. It is an opportunity to gain understanding of what is happening, what is going well, and governments, agencies, and nonprofits have fallen short so far—so that everyone is better equipped to offer lasting care.

Models of Transition to Family Care in Africa

Join a collective group of world class organizations leading family reunification efforts in Kenya, Sierra Leone, Zambia, and Uganda. Glean from 20 years of lessons learned and walk away with actionable, practical steps toward deinstitutionalizing children and repurposing facilities/staff. Build connection with pioneering organizations who have gone before you, and walk away with a clear, actionable “next step” in returning and supporting kids in families.

 

 

Supporting Family and Community Reintegration Through Case Management

This workshop will provide basic, entry-level, theoretical, and practical information on case management for organizations and individuals working or interested in family reintegration and preventing separation of children from their families. Together we will explore the process of case management, examples of tools and standards, and share experiences of using case management. Special topics will include: strengths-based approaches, engaging the family, child participation, and monitoring toward successful reintegration. Following a presentation and discussion, there will be a participatory exercise to help participants take steps to incorporate case management into their work. Resources and links to more information will be shared.
