Fondazzjoni Sebħ runs 4 children homes, one shelter for women and children who would have experienced violence and a community service within the areas of Hamrun and Marsa.
Fondazzjoni Sebħ is an NGO which supports up to 41 children in residential homes who for various reasons needed to be separated from their families. Additionally, the foundation has a shelter for 12 families of women and children escaping violence. The foundation is privileged to work with these resilient women and children and want to support them in having a secure and stable future.
There are multiple ways in which you can support Fondazzjoni Sebħ. Find out more here.
Fondazzjoni Sebħ were also a Changemakers semi-finalist where they pitched their initiative Aftercare and Therapeutic Apartments. With this they wish to renovate three existing apartments to provide a semi-independent alternative temporary accommodation for those adolescents and families leaving Fondazzjoni Sebħ’s homes. This will create an opportunity where these residents can continue to receive individualised, professional support before transitioning fully to independent living.

Financial support, Fundraising and Volunteering
We are embarking on various projects to improve the lives of the residents and communities we work with. Most of these projects are structural and require a lot of funding which we can only get through funding opportunities and fundraising. Unfortunately though a lot of funding opportunities exist, most of our projects do not fall under the criteria thus cutting us off from such opportunities. This means that the only option left is through Fundraising.
Sponsorship for team building
Fondazzjoni Sebh services have a base line of social care. 5 out of the 6 services are residential services to vulnerable individuals and the premises are all scattered around the island. Another service works within the community and the Central Office team is responsible for the corporate functions of the Foundation. In the past couple of years it was very difficult to bring everyone together due to the pandemic. Residences have been heavily impacted by quarantines. Being group homes, they were constantly being effected by these measures which generated a sense of isolations for both the residents and the workers.
During these past months when measures have been eased a lot of care has been given to the residents so that they re-integrate into normality however we also feel that it is now the time to take good care of the workforce. A Team Half Day was successfully held in May 2023 and staff's feedback was very positive indicating how beneficial it would be if these were regular. Team Days can only be held in the mornings as staff need to take care of the children in the afternoons. As an NGO, Fondazzjoni Sebh has very limited budget for such events and sponsorship for a team day would be an excellent opportunity to continue to restore unity within the Foundation.
