Challenge

In 2003, it was estimated that 43 million children in sub-Saharan Africa had lost either one or both parents to death, and 12 million of these children were orphaned by AIDS (USAID, UNAIDS, & UNICEF, 2004). However, research demonstrates that the HIV/AIDS pandemic impacts children in myriad ways, and orphanhood is often an inadequate measure of child marginalization in the African context.

Solution

Orphanhood was not found to be associated with educational disadvantage Ainsworth & Filmer, 2006; Campbell, Handa, Moroni, Odongo, & Palermo, 2010; Lloyd, Blanc & 1996), though other factors, such as an orphan's relationship to the household head, have been found to be significant (Case, Paxson & Ableidinger, 2004). These findings led to a policy shift across sub-Saharan Africa towards child vulnerability as a category of analysis rather than orphanhood (USAID, 2000; World Bank, 2004).

Long-Term Impact

1) Higher Literacy Levels in the community 2) Improved Health 3) Fairly Distributed access to Education for both boys and girls 4) Fewer cases of Destitute and abandoned children 5) Widespread engagement in economically viable activities 6) Economic empowerment of women and girls
