The Child Reintegration Centre continues the collaboration with Street Child UK to identify on the streets of Bo, so they can be reunified with their families.
Children run away from home for many reasons, including conflict with their caregivers and fear of punishment, but the problems can be addressed through reconciliation counseling, family strengthening, and material support for the extremely vulnerable.
Over the last several weeks, Street Child workers found eight children between the ages of 10 and 14 who had run away for various reasons. CRC case managers brought the children in for family tracing, provided interim care, and reunified them with their families. All eight children have been enrolled in a CRC program, and are attending school.
