Book title: Family Based Vs Institutional Care: Best Approaches In Caring For Orphans And Vulnerable Children


Even from the various policies and movements, it is clear that social rules governing child welfare and ideas about caring for “orphans and vulnerable children (OVCs)” have changed over time and vary from culture to culture, sometimes dramatically.

The book provides a comprehensive account of foster and institutional care, which embodies Ghana’s family-based or institutional care. It examines the socio-legal, political, cultural, and economic views on caring for vulnerable children.

Above all, it presents a balanced view of the complex motivations and circumstances of all those whose lives are touched by adoption, orphanhood, and fostering. This includes the experiences of care leavers growing up in orphanages, and the motivations of foster advocates, social workers, orphanage administrators, and adoption agents who have attempted to mediate this process.

 But, most importantly, this book focuses on the alternative approaches of caring for orphans and vulnerable children the right.

Thank you to everyone who showed up for me in the smallest of ways. It means a lot to me.

Releasing a book removes a layer and increases vulnerability, and I am appreciative of that in so many ways.
