Despite the fact that for many of our children we provide the only family they have ever known, we are only licenced by the government to look after them until they reach age 18 when they are considered to be adults. While we aim to place as many as possible in college, back with their relatives or in suitable employment with accommodation provided, for many this is not an option.

How we help

Our Snehadhar women's shelter at our Rehab Center and our GKN Center, a few kilometres away, provide short-term dormitory accommodation and food for our beneficiaries once they reach 18. We continue to support them as they continue their education, vocational training or are employed by our organisation or local employers. Live in staff provide support and pastoral support as the youngsters learn how to become independent adults.

 

Who we help

 

We aim to provide an environment and 'safety net' to enable all of our former Rehabilitation Center beneficiaries to achieve independence once they reach 18.

 

 

How you can help

Help us to ensure all of our young people safely and successfully adjust to the responsibilities of independent living.
