It starts with one child…
Around the world, children are living with trauma and disease. The impact on their life chances can be devastating. The individual child is where we start.
We train and empower people who can best fill the critical gaps in care for those children – mothers, peers who have experienced the same challenges, and community health workers.
We rigorously monitor results so the model can scale up and be integrated into government.
From that first child, our projects have transformed the lives of 122,000 children and been a catalyst for change for a further 1,260,000 people.HOW YOU CAN HELP?
Mothers & Babies
Between 15% and 45% of HIV-positive women who are not accessing treatment will pass the virus on to their babies. We have cut the transmission rate to babies to close to zero. How?
Early childhood is a critical stage of development that forms the foundation for children’s future learning, relationships and wellbeing. 90% of children’s critical brain development happens by the age of 5 years. Find out how we are supporting children to reach their full potential.
The teenage years are ones of change and challenge. This is even more true for adolescents living with chronic illness. Learn more about how we have partnered with Groote Schuur Hospital to offer peer-led adolescent support groups that help teens cope with their illnesses on a physical, psychological and social level.
Creating an AIDS-Free Generation
Our Mentor Mothers walk every day, house-to-house to provide healthcare to some of the most at-risk mothers and children in the Eastern Cape.
We wanted to share with them the difference they are making to the community they are supporting.
