 The Family Empowerment and Advocacy Program is a transformative initiative aimed at strengthening families in Sierra Leone, ensuring they can keep their children and prevent unnecessary separation. We believe that every child deserves the love and care of their family, and we are committed to walking alongside families to empower them sustainably.

Program Objectives

  1. Family Preservation: We provide support and resources to families, helping them overcome challenges and strengthening their ability to care for their children.
  2. Preventing Separation: Our proactive approach focuses on identifying families at risk of separation and intervening in a timely manner with right solutions to prevent the initial family dissolution.
  3. Reunification: When separation has occurred, we work to reunite children with their families as soon as it is safe to do so, providing the necessary support and services.
  4. Empowerment for Sustainability: We empower families with the skills and resources needed for sustainable self-sufficiency and resilience.
