For 10 years Association Life Chance has already been working with disadvantaged children and adolescents in Tbilisi. A large number of the youth are orphans or children whose parents are unable to care for them. Therefore, the majority grew up in orphanages and similar institutions.
In Georgia, the accommodation for disadvantaged youth is only guaranteed up to the age of 18. Afterwards the state care ends. Many adolescents are then faced with an overtaxing situation, because they have nothing to orientate.
We support adolescents in exactly this situation. Our aim is to help these young people to escape from poverty, develop good prospects for long-term, attractive employment and thus be able to integrate into society. We are doing our best to support them growing up into independent and self-determined adults.
