This document represents part of a SAfAIDS project implemented in collaboration with the Ministry of Labour and Social Services (MoLSS), which documents Good Practices in OVC programming in Zimbabwe. The goal of the project is to scale-up information generation and dissemination and thereby encourage the replication of Good Practices in the care and support of orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) in Zimbabwe. The two programmes, coined as Good Practices, and documented here are: Africaid's Zvandiri Programme - Providing psychosocial support to children and adolescents living with HIV; and Kapnek Trust's - Early Childhood Development (ECDs) Centres. The Zvandiri Programme focuses on providing psychosocial support to young people living with HIV through their support groups, which are present in most districts of Harare. Kapnek ECD Centres focus on pre-school children in the Zvimba area of Zimbabwe and provide them with food, health care and educational interventions.
