Integrated Care for Orphans and Other Vulnerable Children: A Toolkit for Community Service Providers

Communities and local organizations in Uganda have found innovative ways to support orphans and other vulnerable children (OVC), often with very few resources. This Training Manual and Toolkit were developed by World Education through the Uganda AIDS/HIV Integrated Model District (AIM) Programme for the Uganda Ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development to share practical ideas that work, in the form of tools from the field in Uganda and around the world. The Training Manual and Toolkit were designed for OVC service providers in communities, including community-based organizations and faith-based organizations. It can also be used by people providing technical assistance and support to such organizations. It includes step-by-step guides, sample documents, needs assessment checklists, monitoring and evaluation indicators, program models, behavior change messages, and suggestions for further resources.

This Toolkit is designed to accompany the Training Manual, which includes comprehensive descriptions and guidelines for all the core program areas of support to vulnerable children and households.

This Toolkit is a practical “how to” guide for selected OVC planning and support activities described in the Training Manual. The tools can be used by people providing technical assistance and support to local organizations. It includes step-by-step guides, sample documents, needs assessment checklists, monitoring and evaluation indicators, program models, behavior change messages, and suggestions for further resources.

The toolkit was produced under the Uganda AIDS/HIV Integrated Model District Program (AIM), implemented by World Education under a sub-contract to JSI Research & Training Institute. 2005.
