Supporting Orphans Aging Out

AGCI is committed to transforming lives through Independence programs that give older orphans the tools they need to thrive.

Dream Homes

Together with our partner in Colombia, we’re creating Dream Homes for kids aging out of institutional care. Dream Homes provide a safe space for teenagers to transition into independent adulthood. Through dorm style housing, kids who previously would have been on the streets will now have an opportunity to study, live, and learn how to be an adult while pursuing a college degree or vocational training program. House “parents” will provide guidance, support, and love during this critical time of growth and self-discovery. We believe that only by imagining a different future for older orphans can we begin to empower the next generation of leaders who will then be able to imagine a world where there is no such thing as an orphan.

Vocational and Educational Training

Training and education are crucial in empowering older orphans in creating full, happy lives outside of an institution. Through Education Sponsorship and Vocational Training Programs, we support orphans who are aging out to ensure that they have the tools they need to achieve their dreams, develop healthy relationships, and create successful independent futures.
