About Us

Our Mission

The mission of New Star Kafala is for every child to have a loving and secure home. Our goal is to help eliminate the causes of abandonment and relinquishment through advocacy, education, and dissemination of resources. We offer ethical, cost effective, and sharia compliant adoptions.

What We Believe

It is a fundamental right of every child to be raised by parents, kin or community. Unfortunately, countless children are raised in institutions, which dooms them to a bleak future. When international adoption is appropriate, it must be carried out with transparency, ethically, and in the best interest of the child. A child is entitled to know his true identity and maintain his family ties, culture and religion.

Adoption and Islam

The majority of U.S. adoption agencies are faith based. Many laws exist that promote a child’s right to be served by organizations affiliated with their faith. This allows religious matching between parent and child, thus ensuring continuity of tradition and identity. Until now, there was not an adoption agency to support Muslim children.

Our Charity Projects

BASICS Program

Morocco’s orphanages receive only about 10% of their operating costs from the Moroccan Government. Orphanages rely on inadequate fundraising and donations to care for the children. Funding may only provide the most minimal needs of a child such as a bed and food. The objective of the BASICS Program help meet the additional living, nutrition and medical needs of children living in four orphanages in Morocco.
