Resilience and Outcomes of South African Girls and Boys Town Care-Leavers Seven Years On

By: Dr Lisa Dickens and Prof Adrian van Breda

The third annual GROWTH BEYOND THE TOWN research report released

This is the third annual report presenting the most recent findings from the Growth Beyond the Town longitudinal research study. The data presented in this report includes all findings since the project’s inception in 2012, to the most recently collected data, which took place in late 2020. The findings are based on 176 participants who were interviewed just prior to their disengagement from GBTSA, and outcomes data from many of these care-leavers were measured each year during follow-up interviews. The report also provides an analysis of resilience variables that predict better outcomes for care-leavers as they transition out of care over the seven years since leaving care.
