Join us in supporting care leavers as they step into the world
Why do we exist?
Children living in institutional care are forced to leave the only homes they have known when they turn 18.
WeLive Foundation was formed to address the needs of young adults, who leave child care institutions at the age of 18. Our purpose is to support them to live independently and integrate with society.
Care Leavers, who leave child care institutions at the age of 18, lack the emotional, social, and financial support that families usually provide for most young people their age, and hence may find it a struggle to live independently. 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.
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.
Their time at WeLive Foundation will enable them to lead independent lives. The program will focus on building the strength of these young people on their well-being and work-readiness front. Read More.
“We too are humans. We have our dreams and goals. We should not let anyone stand in the way of our dreams. Just because we are vulnerable does not mean we cannot dream and work to achieve them.” – Care leaver, Maharashtra. (Source)
