OVACAC exists to supplement the process of HIV prevention, restoring hope and improving the lives of vulnerable children, youth, families and communities affected by HIV infection and disease.Ovacac implements programs in four major core program areas; Psycho-social support, Education, Human Rights and Health. The organisation targets youth, orphans and vulnerable children more especially as a result of HIV/AIDS. The impact of HIV/AIDS is unique because it kills adults in their prime years and leave the most vulnerable, which deprives families and communities of the young and most productive people. HIV/AIDS is also deepening poverty, reversing human development achievements, worsening gender inequalities and eroding the capacity of government to provide essential services. When parents fall ill children are often compelled to leave school to take care of the ailing parents or due to diminished resources to keep them in school. HIV/AIDS scares their minds and are left with traumatized memories of society’s stigma towards them and many unanswered questions. In addition, children are particularly being affected by AIDS epidemic as they lose one or both parents to the disease, leading to a decrease in school enrollment and an increase in orphans and vulnerable children. Majority of OVC lives with a surviving parent who may eventually fall ill as well. Grandparents, uncles and aunts are also looking after orphans demonstrating that the extended family continues to share the burden in spite of hard economic situation. OVACAC believes that orphaned children develop best when they are able to remain with their siblings within a family situation with an adult caregiver in their own community. The comfort of siblings, relatives and familiar authority figures and surroundings helps to mitigate the grief, insecurity and fears experienced by children who lose a parent. Orphans are also able to participate in their own traditions and cultures. In turn they are more likely to succeed in school, socialization skills and preparation for their future livelihood. HIV/AIDS prevention and advocacy for protection against OVC abuse and exploitation interventions will also be put in place to make sure OVC and other children in the communities are protected.
