This case study is based on in-depth qualitative research conducted over six months by Concern Worldwide in the central province of Manica. It looks at how Concern Mozambique has addressed issues related to HIV and AIDS within its education programme. Specifically it outlines how school councils can help create a safer and more supportive environment particularly for girls using a methodology called Circles of Support. Circles of Support encourages the broad community to take responsibility for ensuring all children attend school, children are free from abuse (sexual or other) in school, and provides specific support to the most vulnerable children including orphans because of AIDS.
