I am trying to find someone at the local level who is working on OVC and gender. As much as I've reached out through standard channels, I've had no one available to discuss their work. If you or someone you know, is working with OVC and, in particular, has knowledge and experience with gender programming for OVC, please let me know.

I suggest contacting the Firelight Foundation, which directly funds and supports over 200 grassroots organizations working with children in east and southern Africa.

Hi Gerber,


Where is 'local level', in which country? Thanks for sharing.



By "local level," I mean at the community level and I don't have any specific country in mind. What I'm trying to learn is if there are any groups that have specific programs for girl OVCs. There has been a lot of dicussion about the heightened HIV and AIDS vulnerability of women and girls and I'm trying to find groups that have activities focussing specifically on girl OVCs and what those activities are and what sort of outcomes they are producing.



The Nike Foundation is also funding a Grassroots Girls Initiative that will soon be publishing on their work in this area over the last 5-6 years.

Hi Willow,


At least two of our members on Ning have experience with OVC, both from Zambia:

Stonek: http://aidscompetence.ning.com/profile/stonek?xg_source=profiles_me...


I will contact some other friends from DRC and Thailand. I'll get back to you on this.



Thank you, Laurence!


This is wonderful. I will contact them and others you may also know.



Yes, i have knowledge on it, how may i help you?
