The Public Charitable Foundation (OBF) "Oasis" together with the Public Union "Our Voice" in partnership with the Ministry of Labor and Social Development, with the support of the USAID Collaborative Governance Program, are working on the project "Care Leavers Advocacy." As part of this project, “Oasis” conducted an analysis of the current legislation and provided the following recommendations to support graduates of boarding-type institutions (care leavers):

-Identify an authorized state body responsible for supporting and promoting the social socialization of care leavers (post-institutional support);

-         - Introduce to the current regulatory legal acts the notion of "care leaver" without reference to his/her status as a child (left without parental care, orphans);

-         - Oblige the authorized state body responsible for supporting and promoting the socialization of care leavers, create a single interdepartmental information system (a database) for registration of children left without parental care and graduates, should be included in the e-government system; and

-          - Oblige the prosecutor's office to exercise supervision of timely payment of the assigned benefits to care leavers at their place of residence as well as during their stay in children’s institutions and monitor the provision of housing for care leavers, as well as the measures taken to ensure funds accumulate  for the care lever..

By the end of 2016, 8,888 children live in residential care institutions, of which 1,080 children are in institutions for orphans and children left without parental care. Released at the age of 15 to 18, adolescents face problems of finding housing, admission to educational institutions, adaptation to the society, and frequently become victims of crimes.
