Partner: The province KwaZulu-Natal’s department for housing
Budget: 297.188 euro
The project’s goal is to decrease the impact of HIV/AIDS on orphans and on children infected with HIV/AIDS.
The goal of the programme was to provide shelter and care for 120 orphans and children with high risk of an HIV/AIDS infection. Additionally, capacity building of the local community and service providers was also a goal. This way, they would be in a better position to support the children.
Almost all the predetermined goals were reached:
- the building of 20 nursing homes which meet all the safety rules that are needed to provide shelter for 120 children
- selecting and training 18 nannies
- training 39 volunteers
- organising sensitization campaigns in the surrounding villages
In the meantime, the project was closely followed by a local NGO, in cooperation with the government.
