Coordinating support to vulnerable children
Vulnerable Children include orphans, children in the street, and children in hazardous environments. The main aim is to facilitate support for care, protection and development of orphans and other vulnerable children in a coordinated manner in order to provide them with an environment in which they realize their full rights and potentials. Through this program, the department coordinates partners that are providing services to OVC. The services being offered to OVC include education support, protection from abuse and exploitation, strengthening family and community capacities to care for OVC, and building institutional capacity to respond to problems facing orphans and vulnerable children in the country.
