NOVEMBER 2015 HIGHLIGHTS

• Focus is on building local community capacity to expand/maintain services and to improve overall service quality
• Local community ownership continues to expand with more involvement and greater support for Orphans and Vulnerable Children
• Orfund supported programs are continuing to move toward a higher percentage of local monetary support as opposed to sole support from Orfund
• The number of newly orphaned children is declining (child with no living parents) as AIDS treatment is reducing the death rate although the overall Orphan rate is still high and the number of Vulnerable Children is reported to be increasing
• Botswana’s HIV/AIDS Prevention of Mother to Child HIV Transmission (PMTCT) program is reducing the number of HIV positive infants. This is seen in a fewer number of HIV positive children attending Orfund sponsored programs
