Naguru Reception Centre

Naguru Reception Centre was established in 1959 to provide residential care for abandoned, missing, abused orphaned with no relatives, children with mentally ill or disabled parents or those whose parents were in prison.

The institution was meant to care temporarily for 25 children aged between 2 to 7 years as the parents/relatives were being traced.

The main objective of the centre is to provide safe and better care for children and expose some with no traceable parents for adoption or link to alternative care facilities for long term programmes.
