Family Empowerment Advocacy
Help a vulnerable family become stable and self-sufficient.
About This Campaign
The Child Reintegration Centre reunites children living without parental care with families. Whether this is a child who has left home and is now living on the street, or has lost their connection to family through tragedy, there is a need to prepare the child and the family for success. Getting the child home is only the first step to success. We cannot eliminate the dire circumstances of severe poverty that these children are born into. But we can help their families be better equipped to overcome it. By focusing on the circumstances of the whole family, it is possible to provide tools to make them stronger and more resilient. Your role as a Family Empowerment Advocate will lift up a child, a parent, and a family and lead them to be able to care for themselves.
CRC needs your help to equip family breadwinners to provide adequate economic resources for the family to thrive. Most families enrolled in family strengthening and empowerment programs at the CRC are surviving through some combination of subsistence farming and street selling, and their existence tends to be "hand to mouth." That is why CRC parents are eligible for enrollment in a microfinance program to learn small business and money management skills, how to create a budget and save money, and how to do simple banking transactions. Graduates of this program receive a small loan to start or expand a small business. Acquiring these skills can truly help a family break out of the cycle of dysfunction and illiteracy that mires families in extreme poverty.
How do you help?
You can join the advocacy team with monthly or annual donations that will support the work of the CRC with one or more family and learn about their personal journey. You can contribute to the wellbeing of children rescued from the street, and ensure that their family can provide a stable, loving, safe home for them. You will send children to school, get them fed, keep them well, and keep them growing up where they are most likely to succeed, with a firm foundation of family support and care.
