Summary

We offer a home and vocational training for up to 20 homeless teenagers in Tbilisi. In the last 10 years, 400 children and teenagers have passed through our rehabilitation process and almost all have now built successful, independent lives. We run several small enterprises to provide training and work including a printer cartridge refilling service, which helps to fund our work. In today's tough climate, we are struggling and have had to turn teenagers away because we can't feed them.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Homeless teenagers are the most vulnerable young people possible. On the streets they are at risk of exploitation, of health problems and of getting in trouble with the law. In Tbilisi, Republic of Georgia, there are few services for homeless teenagers. Homeless teenagers mothers and their children are also not provided for.

How will this project solve this problem?

We particularly target those teenagers at risk of a prison sentence. We provide the responsible adult and a lawyer to accompany them through the legal process. When a prison sentence can be avoided we take responsibility for housing the young person, provide a loving environment in which they can address their problems, and give them a vocational training and a way into the world of work. In the bitter Georgian winter we also feed more homeless teenagers who come to us for help (up to 40).

Potential Long Term Impact

Without help now, these teenagers will not be able to go on to work as adults, and are likely to remain homeless, or end up in prison. The chances are their lives will be short. By providing training and work placements, we give them the opportunity to build a stable adult life and contribute to their community. At the moment we are feeding 17 people every day including 2 mothers with 2 babies and a toddler, which gives us the chance to change their lives.
