Providing life skills, training and mentorship to help build brighter futures.
Partnering with Rainbow Homes, our Livelihoods Project aims to transform the lives of 600 boys and girls aged 16 to 23 across 3 cities in Year 1. This innovative programme prepares the young people for the world of work, independent living and finding jobs.
The Livelihood programme focuses on helping young people seek out vocational and practical training to forge their future goals.
Navigating the challenges of becoming an independent adult without the support of a family can be very difficult. Rainbow Homes strive to be that family for their children and young people, helping and supporting them through this key transitional stage of their lives.
Whilst they are still living in Rainbow Homes the programme works with 16 to 18 year olds to identify their interests, aspirations and abilities to tailor possible vocational and training opportunities for them as an individual.
They begin preparing them for independent living with life-skills training and workshops. This includes looking at areas like personal development, decision-making, managing money and planning for everything they will need to live as confident young adults.
As the 19 to 23 year olds move into living independently, the programme mentors them and provides access to a range of opportunities with work experience, internships and finding and sustaining jobs.
This tailored programme will have a life-long impact, empowering these young people with the skills and knowledge they need to change their lives forever. Young people like the resilient and determined Meena demonstrate the impact this powerful programme aims to achieve.
