In Kazakhstan the number of children without parental care is becoming less. Since the beginning of 2016, 829 children from orphanages and children's homes are given for Kazakhstani families.

This is largely due to the fact that Kazakhstanis are more willing to foster orphans. Among 829 children in orphanages and children's homes 183 children were  taken  tutorship, patronage - 123, for adoption - 105, returned to the blood family - 418. Today, there are 7866 children in institutions for orphans.

The MES actively works on improvement of normative legal acts aimed at strengthening the social, psychological and legal assistance to families and children in difficult life situation, which will create conditions for the gradual transformation of children's homes to the family support centers in the future.

In addition, the Republican database of orphans and children without parental care was established  including those wishing to grow up  children in their family.

According to the guardianship, 1800 candidates for adoption were  registered in Kazakhstan.
