Promoting social integration of care-leavers in Ukraine

According to the former Ministry of Ukraine for Family, Youth and Sports (dissolved in 2011), the number of orphaned children and children deprived of parental care in Ukraine accounted for 103,452 in 2008.

According to the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine, on average 8,600 children graduate annually from residential care schools.

The study financed by European Commision and carried out by «Ai.Bi. – Associazione Amici dei Bambini» within the Project “The Consolidation of Non-government Organizations (NGOs) and the Government and Local Self-government Bodies of Ukraine and Moldova to Promote Social Integration of Residential Care School Leavers”, revealed that at present care leavers in Ukraine, as well as in Moldova, do not have sufficient skills for transition to independent living; in addition, no support mechanisms are available.
