As a Christian organisation we believe that God designed and ordained families to care for children. In order to support vulnerable children and strengthen families at risk of separation, ACCI Mission and Relief's Kinnected initiative aims to help keep children in families.
Through Kinnected, we assist field workers and strategic partners to implement alternative care for children and support residential care facilities to reintegrate children back into families and communities. Kinnected projects also aim to strengthen families and develop gate-keeping initiatives in communities, which aim to identify and develop programming to address the root causes that lead to children being placed in residential care. At ACCI, we are passionate about strengthening communities, and we are committed to protecting the child’s right to be nurtured and raised in a loving family.
If you would like more information, please contact our staff who will be happy to speak to you or provide you with additional resources. We would also love to hear from you if you have any feedback on this resource, or to share your own experiences of seeking to do STM and volunteering ethically.
