Membership Criteria

We are a registered Society with a growing collective of young people and adults with lived experience in alternative care with representation across all counties in Kenya. We are all united by a common background of having spent all or part of our childhoods in care- these are formally or informally recognized models of alternative care i.e.  charitable children’s institutions, rescue centers, Kafaalah, foster care, Kinship care, adoption, and guardianship.
