The Experience of Family Foster Care in Malawi: A Preliminary Investigation.
Bandawe, Chiwoza R.; Louw, Johann
Child Welfare, v76 n4 p535-47 Jul-Aug 1997
Used semi-structured interviews to investigate foster parents' qualitative experiences with the Malawi government family foster care structure. Found that cultural factors influenced family foster care, from caregivers' decision to foster children to their determination not to disclose to children that they were fostered; social and economic factors also played role, particularly with regard to some shortcomings in service delivery.
