Be a Part of Something Bigger

Sponsoring a child in our foster care project is an amazing opportunity to support sustainable development and to contribute to the implementation of an effective child protection system in Morocco. For the past three years, we have helped implement the first government-backed foster care pilot program in Morocco. You can be a part of this unprecedented project and directly impact the lives of children for a brighter future.

Why Foster Care?

An Estimated 115,000 children in Morocco live in residential centres… and they don’t need to be

We believe in a child’s right to a safe and loving home. Foster care programs like other alternative care options can provide such stability, and is essential to developing a sustainable and long-term child protection system.

In accordance to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, children should be with families, be it with their biological or other alternative family care. Unfortunately, this is not a reality for all children. In Morocco, an estimated 115,000 children live residential centres (Entraide Nationale, 2018). Overcrowded and underfunded, these centres cannot provide for the individual needs necessary for the healthy growth of a child’s development.

How Sponsorship Helps

Sponsorship programs vary from organization to organization. While some advertise and sensationalize information about specific children, not all of a donor’s money may contribute to each child or their family. Through our program we ensure that all of your donation contributes to the most pressing needs of our foster care children, while protecting their rights and dignity.

Sponsorship Provides A Child’s:

Daily needs including food, clothing, and transportation

Access to education

Medical assistance

Counseling on a weekly basis with our trained social workers

Individualized care to ensure each child’s unique needs are met
