Join us in supporting care leavers as they step into the world

Why do we exist?

Children living in childcare institutions/orphanages (CCIs) are forced to leave the only homes they have known when they turn 18. They may not have the support of a family when they step out into the world. 

WeLive Foundation was formed to address the needs of young adults, who leave childcare institutions at the age of 18.  Our purpose is to support them to live independently and to integrate with society. Read more

 

What do we do?

WeLive Foundation offers a 3-5 year program of transition called a Bridge Program, which is a full-time residential program for care leavers that will provide a place to stay, act as a social security net, invest in their aspirational future, and build their resilience and self-reliance. 

Our Bridge Program will help ease them into the world with optimism, confidence, skills, and the means for a fulfilling, secure and meaningful life. Read More.
