Sunrise has made several trips to Africa over the past few years in order to explore the possibility of adoptions, to meet with government officials and to visit orphanages. One in five children in Africa today is an orphan.
It is a powerful experience, to say the least. While formal adoption has been a foreign concept in Africa in the past, some countries are looking to international adoption to find permanent families for orphaned and vulnerable children. We have established several adoption options in Africa. Our Africa Coordinator is a Social Worker who was born and raised in Africa.
