"Care leaver networks are like a safety net, where you can fall back and survive to see another day"

- Ruth Wacuka from Kenya

Global Care Leavers Community commenced as a functional outcome of the first International Care Leavers Convention wherein the care leavers clearly spelt the need for an active platform for the exchange of ideas, best practices, advocacy, legislation, research and support. The community aims to drive the collectivization process including driving motivations, sharing challenges and achievements and seeking support for Care Leavers.
