Summary

This project will support 100 young care leavers who left from long institutional care and other alternative care arrangements and planning to live independently with appropriate higher education, life coping skills, and secured income. The major thrust will be to prepare them to be self-independent and sustain by themselves during the transition from institutional to independent life and enable these "young adults" to mainstream themselves in society.

Challenge

Thousands of children who live in various alternative care are compel to leave care facilities when they have completed 18 years. The Institutions do not prepare them to be self-independent and prepare during the transition from institutional to independent life. Aftercare is an important stage in the life of an adolescent to reintegration into adulthood. This is especially required, as the child has gone through a long period of institutionalization, which resulted in lack of social adjustment.

Solution

Our solution is to Develop Individual Care Plan for each care leaver and takes the plan forward. To build the confidence and capacity to face the world outside the Institution, we will organize life coping sessions. Based on the Individual care plan higher education and job placement will be facilitated to sustain without external support and move out of the group home to stay in a place of their own choice with their earnings.

Long-Term Impact

We will provide initial accommodation and living expenses and facilitate each individual care leavers to gradually sustain themselves without external support and move out of the group home to stay in a place of their own choice with their earnings. During the process, we will facilitate linking with Government support services and facilities to develop confidence and cope with the outside world and then it helps the child stand by himself after leaving the group care arrangements.
