Family Preservation Programme

Family Preservation Programme

The Family Preservation Programme cares for children affected by or at risk of trafficking and/or sexual abuse, while keeping the family together. Although children living at the Asha Children's Reintegration Centre improve in their education, health and social skills, the presence of mother is clearly missing. Sadly there will always be children affected by trafficking who need to be separated from the family, but we prefer to find ways of preserving the family unit where possible.

This is done through educational support for the child, balanced by a range of services in support of the mother and sometimes also the child's siblings. Support centres on education, but may also include one or more of the following: healthcare, counselling, rent support, food and dietary support, and employment coordination and training. The FPP is kindly funded by The World Childhood Foundation in Sweden and Sanctuary for Kids in Canada.

The Family Preservation Programme means we can reach out to many more children affected by trafficking, as there is a lower financial outlay per child (a welfare team, office support and a couple of scooters) compared with supporting them within a residential centre.

Children on this programme join the children at the Reintegration Centre for a number of formal and informal activities. Where possible, parents also attend counselling and support programmes at the Centre.

So that we can continue to reach more child victims of violent abuse, please support the children
