Foster Care and Adoption:4 Adoption Agencies in Kenya

The topic of adoption has been on the rise in Kenya, with many people inquiring about how to go about it or if MumsVillage is an adoption agency. While we are not an adoption agency, we’re interested in the well-being of children and families. Adoption offers a child what the parents are not in a position to grant them and this can be emotional, physical, and psychological support as well as basic needs.

Uwakili, a Nairobi law firm guides parents on The Process of Adoption in Kenya as an adoptive parent, an adoptive child, and the overall process.

For you to adopt a child or give a child up for adoption, the law has to be followed to protect the child and ensure that they are placed in a well-intended loving family. Here are 6 registered adoption agencies to contact if you’re considering adoption.

 

 

 1. Buckner: Hope Shines Here
