Community Action for Quality Alternative Care and Protection in Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Zanzibar is the second phase of a regional programme. The programme aims to improve quality in family- and community based care for the most vulnerable and marginalised children in East Africa who grow up outside of their family of origin. The interventions empower alternative caregivers and improve their parental skills while developing the social service workforce that support them and strengthening support systems for improved supervision, accountability and transparency. The programme has a strong focus on research and documentation to detect promising practices and existing gaps in child protection systems in order to inform policy dialogue, advocacy, knowledge sharing and building strong partnerships for change. Child and youth participation remain a key priority to make sure that their best interests are protected and that no one is left behind.
