This project will support children those who left from long institutional care arrangements/Orphansges and planning to live independently with appropriate higher education, life coping skills and group/independent living arrangements. It is to help or prepare them to be self independent and sustain by them-selves during the transition from institutional to independent life and enable these "young adults" to mainstream themselves in the society.
Thousands of children live in "orphanages" are compel to leave care facilities when they have completed 18 years. The Institutions does not prepare them to be self-independent and prepare during the transition from institutional to independent life. After care 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.
Our solution is to Develop Individual Care Plan for each child 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.
We will provide initial accommodation and living expenses and facilitate each individual child to gradually sustain itself 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 facilitate to develop confidence and cope with outside world and then it helps the child stand by himself after leaving the group care arrangements.
We are currently expecting delays in getting funds to this project due to new regulatory requirements that impact GlobalGiving's ability to disburse to organizations in India. GlobalGiving is working hard to address the issue. Donations to this project will be disbursed as quickly as possible.
