The home-based care (HBC) program is a cost-effective and culturally relevant means of helping children who have been orphaned. This simple approach involves coming alongside extended families who are willing and capable of caring for children who have been orphaned. Rather than removing children from their local communities and placing them into a more costly setting, they live with grandparents or extended family.
ReACT’s social worker, Josephine, carefully assesses each situation and ReACT assists families with food and basic supplies. Mark Kamondi, the Kenyan Director, also disciples them with the help of the children living at the Veronica Home.
There are presently 35 children in ReACT’s HBC program.
