Every effort is made to never publish the names or faces of our children. Please contact us directly should you require more information about the use of photographs on our website.


Studies have shown that institutionalized children are often deprived of adequate opportunities for emotional, physical and social development and to grow to their full potential. Globally there is a shift from lengthy institutionalization of children to alternative family based care, because children develop better within a family structure. Institutional care should be considered as a last resort and as a temporary solution only. In fact, much more needs to be done to prevent children from entering the social welfare system.

GCF has carefully considered these important issues in the development of the unique model. Programs are based on a proactive approach, early intervention and prevention, family strengthening and holistic temporary care for children waiting to be integrated back into a family.

Over the years GCF has developed quality programs which gained the attention of African and other developing countries.

A quality Assurance Manual has been developed to guide all operational and program procedures. The Monitoring and Evaluation system ensures that performance and quality indicators are monitored and performance indicators are monitored. Internal and external evaluations are conducted with beneficiaries to ensure that programs meet their needs. It is GCF policy to control cost without jeopardizing quality.
