Reintegrating street children into families and the community is the most powerful and sustainable way of supporting them.
Tracing the families and resettling the children is done throughout the year. At times, the families do not want to take the children back. This makes the resettlement very difficult. In other cases, the conditions of the home are not by far adequate; this can also hinder a child's resettlement. However, if none of these problems occur, the child is put back into the home. Before coming back, both children and families are counseled and prepared for reconciliation and reunion.
The children are supposed to be resettled with a package including books, blankets, a mattress and a mosquito net. These days this is rarely done, due to shortage of funds.
