We work to ensure that youth and families that are vulnerable—whether from poverty, because of a disability, or because of their gender and social status—receive the education, care, and services they need to live full and rewarding lives.
We develop the capacity of local NGOs, faith-based organizations, local and national governments, and community volunteer networks to coordinate and deliver services that meet the needs of the people and communities they serve, including orphans and other vulnerable children. We link clients to referral networks and use a case management approach to ensure that vulnerable children and their families receive the care and services they need.
Our Bantwana Initiative builds and scales up models of comprehensive care that enable vulnerable children, youth, and families to move toward social and economic stability. We improve health and wellbeing, in particular among children, adolescents, and young women living with HIV.
Our data-driven approaches build on family and community strengths, enabling rapid adaptation to emerging challenges, such as COVID-19, and ensuring children, youth, and families access the critical services they need to thrive.
