Orphans and Vulnerable Children

EDC supports Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVCs) and their families. EDC’s work with OVCs includes school access and retention programs, ensuring that children affected by HIV and AIDS continue to have access to educational resources, psychosocial supports and positive school environments. We also help to create supportive communities of teachers, parents and local leaders through community mobilization, teacher training on curriculum related to OVCs, and income generation activities for households caring for OVCs.  EDC also links OVCs and their families to appropriate care and treatment services.
