Morocco Kafala Grant

The Morocco Kafala Fund is available to families adopting from Morocco. It provides Adoption Grants to families to help cover some of the adoption expenses. Grants for Waiting Child are also available. The Fund is available to provide Emergency Loans to a family experiencing unexpected expenses while in Morocco.   Lastly, the fund supports our partners in Morocco and the orphans they serve.

Adoption Grants

The Fund provides grants to families adopting from Morocco with financial need. As a guideline, families with an annual income under $100,000 and savings under $50,000 would be eligible to apply for a grant.  Grants range from $500 to $3,000.

Grants for Waiting Children

Waiting children are older or might have special needs. By helping families reduce the financial barriers we can help find a waiting child a home. The financial criteria for this Grant would be determined on a case by case basis.

Emergency Loan

The loan would be for a family that is required to stay longer than expected in Morocco because of unforeseen delays or an emergency. The loans would range from $500 to $3,000.  A brief statement of the financial need and how the funds would be used would replace the formal application.  Payments would be arranged through a payment plan.

Projects Grants

This grant would be available to support projects that benefit orphaned and abandoned children in Morocco. Projects would be considered as a one-time, single funded project and not ongoing support. The prospective recipient would provide a description of the project and its intended benefits. Project grants would be between $500 and $2,000.

A family receiving a Kafala Fund Grant is encouraged to donate or raise donations to help sustain the program in the future. Supporting the Kafala Fund will support orphaned and abandoned children in Morocco. We also welcome and appreciate support and donations to New Beginnings’ Morocco Adoption Program and the Kafala Fund from all our New Beginnings’ Families who support our work. The Kafala Fund grants cannot be combined the Beyond the Placement Grant. Combining the Kafala Fund Grant with other financial aid is encouraged.

Beyond the Placement Grant

The Beyond the Placement Grant Program provides help families adopt a waiting child.  There are many children available for adoption that are older or have special needs.  In assisting families in reducing the financial barriers, we can help find a waiting child a home.  For more on waiting children adoption, visit our website at

Grants available when adopting a waiting child are $1,000.  To qualify, first, you must be active in a New Beginnings program. Next, you must be seeking approval or be approved to adopt a waiting child. Lastly, you must demonstrate some financial need. Along with other considerations, you would show financial need by a gross household income of less than $125,000 or other circumstances.

Our Grant Selection Committee will review grant applications.  We will make every effort to consider your application promptly. We look to and will try to pre-approve grants early in the process.  The Grant Application can be submitted with the Adoptive Family Profile or any time before finalization.  Grants will be awarded upon the acceptance of a waiting child for adoption.

Beyond the Placement Grants help reduce the cost of adopting a waiting child so you will have a little more money for the trip abroad or the first doctor’s visit.

If you have any questions on the Beyond the Placement Program or the Grant Application, e-mail New Beginnings at [email protected] or call Timothy Sutfin at 516-747-2204.

My Experience in Home to Home

In the fall of 2018 I participated in the Home to Home program in South Korea. Truth be told, I almost turned down the opportunity to go – there was a lot going on for me this year, work has been busy, etc. I can not express in words how happy I am that I decided to go.
