Influence Of Community Based Orphan Care On Integral Growth Of Orphans In Homa Bay County: A Case Of The Mango Tree Orphan Support Program
While Home Based Care (HBC) of orphans is for the most part advancing in recognition in most of developing countries in Africa as an alternative approach to Institutionalized Based Care, its knowledge among the members of local communities in Kenya especially Homabay County remains scanty. This study is aimed at investigating the influence of community based orphan care on the integral growth of orphans in Homa Bay County in the case of The Mango Tree Orphan Support Program. The study reached a total number of sixty five orphans and households. Purposive sampling procedure on the other hand was used to arrive at the sample of households that were selected to participate in the Focus Group Discussion (FGD). In sampling the participants, the researcher was assisted by using the zero-based acceptance sampling plan table to come up with a sample size of 68 participants with a .65% representation of the total population of four thousand four hundred and fifty eight (4458). The total number of those who were selected included fifty (n=68) participants.
