1 in 10 children worldwide lives in the care of family members or friends who are not their birth parents. Yet in many countries, kinship care receives no official acknowledgement, leaving caregivers without vital support and potentially putting children at risk.

Join this online event to learn what kinship care looks like in different contexts and why recognising it is so important. We will hear from frontline practitioners in Egypt, Ethiopia and Paraguay about the different ways that kinship care is used to reintegrate children from institutional care and life on the street.
