Summary

When adolescents living in institutional shelter turn 18 years old, they have to leave the institution to live an adult, autonomous life. But most of them don't have strong family ties, a job or a place to live. This fund will help those adolescents in such a difficult transition, providing emotional, professional and material support and assisting them in the search for purpose, a job, housing, and how to exercise their citizenship.

Challenge

According to the National Council of Justice, there are, at the moment, more than 5000 adolescents aged 16 and 17 living in foster childcare services in Brazil. When they turn 18, these adolescents need to leave shelters to live on their own. Without government or family support, they face difficulties to transit to this new stage of life and break the cycles of violence and ruptures they have been subjected to

Solution

Fazendo Historia Institute, through Grupo Nos program, works with adolescents and young adults from 16 to 21 years old. The program is based on four axes of action: housing, professional development, money management and citizenship. We provide individual monitoring and group meetings, when we offer different activities related to the program's axes, cultural expeditions and emotional support to help them strength familiar and community bonds.

Long-Term Impact

The project makes it possible for young adults disconnected from foster care institutions and living in vulnerable areas to be able to sustain their life projects autonomously, with the possibility of finding a place in the labor market, dignified housing and participating actively and critically in the society in which they live
