Facilitator's Guide: Practical Life Skills - Workshops for care leavers and those who have recently left care aged 18 to 25 years old

Youth who grew up in care can face challenges that are often different from the challenges faced by other young people. They often leave care without any definite or tangible support from the government, little-to-no support from the residential care facility (called "charitable children's institution" in Kenya) they are leaving, and sometimes limited connections to family or community. This series of resources are designed by care leavers for care leavers to help equip youth for life outside of care, strengthen coping strategies, foster safety nets and community networks.

Put Children First: Recommendations to End Orphanage Volunteering and the Institutionalisation of Children

It is estimated that at least 5.4 million children live in institutions worldwide. Yet over 80% of these have at least one living parent. Research has shown the harm of orphanage care on children’s health, development and wellbeing and how orphanage volunteering is working to perpetuate these institutional systems which separate children from their families and communities. There is now a global movement to end both practices.

These key policy recommendations were published as part of the "Put Children First: End Orphanage Care" campaign.
