Orphans and Vulnerable Children

Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC) may be infected or affected by HIV/AIDS or live in social or economic conditions which expose them to other risks. They may experience sexual or physical abuse, engage in various forms of exploitative labour and/or be highly mobile. The conditions endured by these children are usually exacerbated by deeply entrenched poverty and poor access to healthcare. Working with OVC requires extreme sensitivity and over the years I have developed a number of participatory techniques to enable them to articulate their stories and to pro-actively empower themselves.
