We are not currently accepting new  families into the Pakistan orphanage program  due to the increasingly long wait time to receive a placement by licensed Pakistani orphanages. 

We will continue to assist US citizens taking guardianship of approvable relative cases. 

New Star Kafala’s goal is to operate in the most cost-effective manner possible while maintaining high standards. By working with knowledgeable, ethical and deeply committed partners abroad, we are able to offer professional services in the true spirit of non-profit operation.  There are no hidden additional costs in our fees or estimates.
