The Egress Is Made In 3 Cases

  • The child expresses his desire to graduate. If the CIMA team gives its approval, it will seek to persuade the child to wait until the end of the school year so as not to disturb their schooling. In the event that the school year is not very advanced, the transfer to another educational institution is processed. If the CIMA team considers that the child is not ready, it initiates discussions with him and his family. However, CIMA’s philosophy is based on the free consent of the child, discharge is never prevented. On the contrary, contact is made with the family to prepare for discharge and facilitate family and social reintegration.
  • The team considers that the discharge conditions are met (positive change in the child’s behavior and good family conditions). If the child feels ready to reintegrate into his family, the discharge is prepared.
  • The young man is 18 years old. The discharge of the adult is a legal obligation.

In the months prior to the young man’s departure, he is being prepared.


  • After discharge, follow-up is carried out by social workers through visits to families. Generally a visit is made and if necessary some more. Sometimes CIMA also offers financial support to children who are in school when the family does not have sufficient financial resources to pay the costs.
  • CIMA maintains collaborations with organizations that have programs in which young people can join after graduation. Among others, the RUNAYAY association can be named, founded by a former CIMA volunteer precisely to support the young graduates of CIMA and two other homes. The RUNAYAY association supports young people for a period of 3 years, helping them find a home, with a study program and a job. RUNAYAY also offers recreational handicraft workshops, productive workshops, job placement workshops and psychosocial support to help build a life project. The objective is not only the employment of young people (90% of them get a formal and stable job) but also their personal development (strengthening their ability to face problems constructively). This program is open to young people over 16 years of age, who have been at CIMA for at least 1 year and who show a desire to participate in the program.
