We Provide Stability

At DKF, we combine short-term aid and long-term guidance to strengthen families who struggle financially under the burden of caring for additional children so they are better able to provide quality care for children and to protect them from child labor, child trafficking and other threats to their safety.

Families across Liberia are more vulnerable today than ever before. Adverse circumstances like poverty, armed conflict and disease present overwhelming challenges for parents and threaten family stability. When families are at risk of falling apart, children are at a much greater risk of being abused, abandoned or exploited.
