This project provides training to 220 caregivers and CAGs in the skills of counselling children, including topics of loss and grief in 3 districts in Cambodia.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
CHEC has been requested by their communities to scale up the home-based care program focusing on OVCs to enable them to remain integrated into their own community with a positive outlook for their future. Strategies will be responding to the needs of children and orphans affected by AIDS through the set up of the OVC Support teams/OVC Committee at each Dist. (3 Dists such as Sa Ag, Kampong Tralach and Preah Sdach in 3 Provinces). We ensure access for OVC to essential services.
How will this project solve this problem?
Through the creation of the supportive environment and protection of OVCs, we will be able to help OVCs to access essential services and reduce stigma and discrimination against them.
Potential Long Term Impact
The project will educate 328 carers and links arrangements with health and education services, community saving schemes and volunteer activities.
