This program is: open on a limited basis

Kenya prohibits a sole male applicant or an applicant of a different race from adopting a child, unless the Kenyan courts determine that there are extenuating circumstances.

It is also illegal to advertise when a parent is looking to adopt or to place; it must be done through the proper channels and the proper courts. Applicants must be at least 25 years old, younger than 65, and at least 21 years older than the child. It is required that the prospective adoptive parents are present during the adoption. The average time frame is 6 months. In 2011, six adoptions were finalized in Kenya.
