- Project Manager – “Care Leavers’ Independence”
Economic independence and the transition to adulthood is challenging for all youth. It is even more so for underprivileged youth who are about to exit institutional homes and who are used to being taken care of, while having to deal with lots of social stigma and rejection. It is estimated that there are over 2 million children without parental care in Egypt for a broad variety of reasons, including being in conflict with the law or rejected by their family. According to the Ministry of Social Solidarity in Egypt, there are around 500 registered institutional homes.
Wataneya Society is registered as an NGO since 2008 and will be launching a five-year project “Care Leavers’ Independence” funded by Drosos foundation.
About the Project
- Project Title: “Care Leavers’ Independence”
- Project Duration: Five Years
- Designed & Executed By: Wataneya Society for the Development of Orphanages https://wataneya.org/
- Funded By: Drosos Foundation https://drosos.org/
Summary of Project
Overall Goal: Youth who have been in care homes are successfully integrated into society and able to access socio economic opportunities. To fulfil the project overall goal, the project has three main specific objectives with clear results and activities:
S.O.1 Care-leavers have the capacity and skills to make a successful transition to independence
This objective focuses on making change on the individual level with 500 youth. Wataneya will design and supervise the delivery of personal development and employability skills programs to enable the children without parental care, from 14 to 18+ years old, for independence through collaborating with implementing partners. The programs will include personal development, basic life skills and employability skills in addition to providing psychosocial support. The personal development and life skills component will include self-discovery, planning, self-awareness, communication skills…etc.
Through its network with the private sector, Wataneya will place target youth in career development programs sponsored by private sector partners that are willing to provide the youth with internships or job opportunities after accomplishing the program.
The outcome of these programs is to develop a well-structured curriculum for after-care for institutionalized children and youth to be shared with The Ministry of Social Solidarity (MoSS) and other NGOs working in the field.
Moreover, a leadership program will be delivered by Wataneya for a selected group of youth, 60 youth, to create change agents from these youth to represent and support their peers.
S.O.2 Institutional homes have adapted their systems and mind sets to qualify care leavers for independence
In order to ensure sustainability and scale up, Wataneya will work at the institutional level in SO2. Using the same approach adopted in its previous project in partnership with Drosos Foundation, Wataneya will build 20 success models by developing their capacity and practices so that they can prepare and qualify the children for independence once they have to leave home. This will be done through several interventions targeting the management and staff of the institutional homes, and the systems and procedures deployed.
S.O.3 An enabling and inclusive environment supports reintegration of care-leavers
For these efforts to bear fruit, the ecosystem needs to be improved to provide better opportunities for the care leavers to succeed in living independently. For this reason, Wataneya will focus in SO3 on advocating for an enhanced eco-system to support care leavers, with MoSS, other civil society players, and the private sector. Wataneya will also leverage its strong position of trust among stakeholders to facilitate the mobilization of resources and organization of efforts to provide the basic needs for care leavers, such as housing and subsistence income for a period of time, until the youth are able to live independently and have secured a sustainable income. During this phase, they will also need the support of mentors and advisors to guide them professionally, socially, and emotionally. Wataneya will also liaise with multiple players to enable the provision of this support for care leavers.
