Project Description

Fondazzjoni Sebħ is an NGO which supports up to 41 children in residential homes who for various reasons needed to be separated from their families. Additionally, the foundation has a shelter for 12 families of women and children escaping violence. The foundation is privileged to work with these resilient women and children and want to support them in having a secure and stable future.

Adolescents leaving residential care and women and children escaping violence, leaving shelters, often lack solutions which allow them space to heal and stabilize. Fondazzjoni Sebħ hopes to renovate three existing apartments to provide a semi-independent temporary accommodation for these children and families. This will create an opportunity where these residents can continue to receive individualised, professional support before transitioning fully to independent living. This will lower risks of vulnerability in the community, allow them time to pursue goals of employment or education and support the belief that every child deserves the right start to adult life free from burden.

By renovating three existing apartments this will provide a semi-independent alternative temporary
accommodation for those adolescents and families leaving Fondazzjoni Sebħ’s homes. This will create an opportunity where these residents can continue to receive individualised, professional support before transitioning fully to independent living.

THE IMPACT

  • The time in these apartments will increase the readiness of these women and children when moving to the community and in turn will lower risks of vulnerability,
  • It will allow them time to pursue goals of employment or education,
  • Support the belief that every child deserves the right start to adult life free from burden,
  • To share the realities of these children and women with the general public,
  • To support the shift to community integration,
  • Breaking the generational cycle,
  • To have a solution which will support many children, adolescents and women for years to come.

The initiative is divided into three phases with a budget of around Eur380,000. Any little bit will help them reach their targets. Donate and be a changemaker too!
