Our impact

We have reached just under 5,000 young people, on three continents, since our inauguration in late 2011. Young homeless people in Britain have been supported into independent adulthood.  Young Malawians leaving prison have successfully reintegrated with their communities and been given training and tools to earn an income. Young Nepalese women supported to become leaders in their communities, raising awareness on important issues like early child marriage and caste discrimination. Young people have become positive role models, entrepreneurs and leaders, inspiring other young people to make changes in their lives and become active citizens in their communities.

 

How we work

 
 
 
We get a new positive mind-set and positive message we can keep in our heads
— Participant 2014
It’s all about showing people that I can do stuff to be proud of (instead of feeling ashamed).
— Participant 2013
Rites of Passage gives a ‘real life, real world’ experience that continues to shape aspirations for the future. Participants all comment how their confidence has grown through taking ownership of their travel and budget, making new friends and discovering new places.

Working in partnership with Chance for Change has influenced our thinking. We now offer a strength based model that focuses on young people’s talents, skills and ability.
