  • CULTURE AND CARE, THE ROLE OF THE EXTENDED FAMILY CARE
    Paper Presented During the FICE-INTERNATIONAL FEDERAL COUNCIL Held in Barcelona – Spain on 7th November, 2014 by Simon Peter Otieno – President of FICE Kenya. Abstract: “The Critical Review Paper (2010) informs that over 90% of OVCs are given care by the extended family system. This demonstrates and appreciates that the extended family care, a form of informal alternative care, in child and youth care, is the most suitable form of alternative care. This explains its growing popularity. The paper therefore demonstrates the suitability of this culture-based form of alternative care for children and youth in need of care and protection among communities, in comparison with orphanages or juveniles, among other categories of formal care.” read more
