Family Tracing for Children Without Adequate Documentation

In this video, Dy Noeut and Kim Malin of New Smile Organisation (NSO) discuss their experience of conducting family tracing as a part of reintegration efforts in the context of an unregistered orphanage where children’s files contained missing and inaccurate information. Noeut and Malin share their key learning about how to determine what information in a child’s file might be factual and non-factual, how to approach tracing where parents’ real names are unknown, what information typically provides the most reliable clues and how to engage other stakeholders to source information and pursue leads.

This video is part of a series of practitioner learning videos from Cambodia.
