    Dear care leaver community,

    my name is Robin and I am a member of Careleaver e. V. (www.careleaver.de) in Germany. We built up an international care leaver WhatsApp group with care leavers from Italy, Romania, the Netherlands, Austria, Croatia, France, Spain, Senegal, Uganda, Sri Lanka and India. Please let me know, if you want to join the group. You just have to send me a message (0049 151 541 604 76).

    Regards, Robin

    Dear Robin,

    I apologize for long time needed to get an answer!

    Thank you so much for your sharing!
    It is amazing to see that you gathered care leavers from so many World countries.
    Is it ok with you to put the post in the news about your kind suggestion and invite care leavers to join the group?
    We would be also very grateful if you share information about our web page with other care leavers via your WhatsApp group. We would be more than glad to share on our web page examples of good practice of different care leavers networks and organizations, care leavers’ stories or contributions to the Identity of cactus Museum.
    We are also very glad to share that we had chance to meet some of the members of Careleaver e.V. network. Big hug to all of them 🙂

    Best regards

    Dear Lilly,

    yes, of course! You can put the post in the news. I already sent the link (www.careleavernetwork.eu) in our groups. Do you already know about the 1st Care Leaver Convention in New Delhi?

    Dear Robin,

    Thank you for sharing our link within your groups 🙂

    Yes, we know about the Convention and the news is shared on this web page and also on web pages of partners.
    I have some role in organizing committee of the Convention as well as professor Wolfgang Schroer from Germany. Do you cooperate with him? I know that some of care leavers from Germany will come on the Convention with him, are you among them?

    Best regards

    Yes, we cooperate with him. 🙂 We have also been in New Delhi last year in November with some members of the University of Hildesheim. I do not know, whether we will join. We are still looking for funding.

    Regards, Robin

    Oh, great! I guess India was an incredible experience. Do you have any text about your group visit there? I think it would be very helpful if we put some text on the page about your experiences and tips what to expect, how to prepare…. Maybe more people from Europe would join (and some fears would be dispelled). What do you think?
    Thank you
    Lilly

    And just to let you know we put info on about WhatsApp group on our web page but also on our Facebook page. Hope someone will join

    Hi Robin,

    as you know we shared information about international Wahtsapp group and in our FB page there was a question about it. It would be great if you can answer on it as we don’t know much about the group.

    Priprema za izlazak iz skrbi: “What is the benefit if someone joins that group? However, these are smartphones we are using today and data protection is important.”

    You can find it on FB Care Leavers Network Europe

    Thank you!

    Dear Lilly,

    the benefit is the easy interaction between care leavers, does not matter, where they come from. 🙂 The group is normally not so busy, but at the moment we talk about the 1st Care Leaver Convention in New Delhi. The group is also for professionals with and without care experience. I can also add you to the group, if you are interested.

    Regards, Robin

    Dear Robin,

    Thank you so much for your reply. I will send it to our colleagues to put it on the FB page as an answer to the question.

    I was just on the Skype meeting regarding 1st CL Convention in India and I think your name was mentioned as a facilitator. Congratulations!
    I am so sad that I will not be able to participate on this event.

    Best regards

    Dear Robin,

    as a care leaver from Switzerland I am so glad to find out that you established a WhatsApp group for international care leavers. I will send you a message in a second.

    Have a wonderful day! It‘s sad I can‘t join the first care leaver convention in India as I got to know it just a week ago. Next time I‘ll be there. 🙂

    Best wishes,
    Thomas
