This paper addresses two frequent overgeneralisations in the orphanhood literature in Africa: about the vulnerability of children and about orphans. It specifically examines school attendance, given the common presumption that orphans are less likely to attend school than non-orphans. Using survey data from two regions in Tanzania, analysis by primary school attendance categories (regular attenders, irregular attenders, dropouts, never attenders) shows that orphans should not be compared only with non-orphans since there are other vulnerable groups of children, all with different levels of social and spatial disadvantage. Both orphans and a second large and potentially vulnerable group of children, children who have not lost a parent, but who live with only one or neither of their parents, are less likely than other children to attend school in urban and roadside settlements, but there is no clear relationship for rural areas between vulnerable groups and attendance and dropout. ...
The three essays in this dissertation examine issues related to family structure and marriage in Sub-Saharan Africa. The first two essays explore how family structures influence childrens outcomes. The third essay focuses on the data quality of marriage histories collected in a longitudinal survey. The first essay examines whether the timing and type of orphanhood is associated with early sexual debut and early marriage among 12-19-year-old adolescents in Burkina Faso, Ghana, Malawi, and Uganda. I also test whether education mediates orphans risk of early sexual initiation and early marriage. Discrete-time event history models suggest that female double orphans, regardless of timing of orphanhood, have greater odds of early sexual debut than do nonorphans. Education explains little of their increased risk. In contrast, male orphans of any type reveal no increased vulnerability to early sexual debut. Uganda is the only country where female orphans, specifically double orphans and those who are paternal
Orphaned children have been found to be at greater risk of poor health and malnutrition compared to non-orphans in sub-Saharan African countries. However, levels of disadvantage vary by location and little is known about the causal pathways that lead from orphanhood to poorer health and malnutrition. Aggregate data from recent Demographic and Health Surveys in 22 countries were used to compare overall levels of ill-health and malnutrition by orphan status. Data from the Manicaland Child Cohort Study in Zimbabwe - a closed cohort study with detailed longitudinal information on orphans experience - were used to describe how patterns of ill-health and malnutrition alter over the childs life-course and to test causal pathways between orphanhood and ill-health and malnutrition, hypothesized in a previously published theoretical frame-work ...
Background: Identifying children at the highest risk of negative health effects is a prerequisite to effective public health policies in Southern Africa. A central ongoing debate is whether poverty, orphanhood or parental AIDS most reliably indicates child health risks. Attempts to address this key question have been constrained by a lack of data allowing distinction of AIDS-specific parental death or morbidity from other causes of orphanhood and chronic illness. Objectives: To examine whether household poverty, orphanhood and parental illness (by AIDS or other causes) independently or interactively predict child health, developmental and HIV-infection risks. Methods: We interviewed 6 002 children aged 10 - 17 years in 2009 - 2011, using stratified random sampling in six urban and rural sites across three South African provinces. Outcomes were child mental health risks, educational risks and HIV-infection risks. Regression models that controlled for socio-demographic co-factors tested potential ...
This study examines the impact of school support as a structural intervention, tested among adolescent orphans in Siaya District, Nyanza Province, Kenya.. Aims for the proposed study are: 1) To experimentally test whether providing comprehensive school support to Kenyan orphaned boys and girls will reduce school dropout, reduce sexual risk behaviors, and prevent HIV/HSV-2 infection; 2) To conduct a process evaluation of the implementation of the program; and 3) To conduct comparative cost effectiveness analyses, specifying the interventions cost and return on investment as evidenced by cost per unit improvement in the primary outcomes of school enrollment, delay of sexual debut and prevention of risk behaviors and HIV/HSV-2 infection, as well as by gains in health-related quality of life. ...

We worked at Reach-Out Orphans and Vulnerable Children for two weeks as part of our global health externship. So far we have assisted in two free health clinics to the Reach-Out community and its surrounding areas, one in West Kochieng and the other in East Kochieng. Both of the clinics were very successful and had an exceptional turnout of 350 and 400 respectively. We were very thankful to have nursing students from Moi University assist us for both of the health clinics. Collectively we were able to recognize and treat a variety of illnesses such as malaria, respiratory tract infections and eye infections. We also provided wound care and voluntary HIV testing accompanied by counseling.. Pam McQuide and Hezekiah were a big influence in another major project we did of distributing sanitary pads to the female students. We were amazed to learn how common it is throughout Africa for girls to miss up to a month of school each year due to the lack of sanitary pads. Through the generosity of family ...

This implies that the teacher may not be happy to teach Life Orientation, but that they have no choice but to try and cope with the incumbent stressors - "you have no option but to swallow the pain and go ahead with the tuition." Being overburdened with OVC issues, the LO teachers were forced to work longer hours in order to attend to their lesson preparation and assessment duties. This kind of problem is something that can only really be dealt with at school level under the leadership of the principal (Wood & Webb, 2008).. Conclusions and recommendations. The findings of this study offer little evidence of the training programme designers having consulted with teachers on the lived reality of teaching in a school where HIV and AIDS have increased the vulnerability of the majority of children. The current training workshops, while well-intentioned, position the teacher as a passive recipient of knowledge, rather than an active contributor to the construction of strategies based on expert ...

In Sub-Saharan Africa, 30 percent of the population is malnourished, 76 percent of the population living in rural areas lacks access to improved sanitation, while 53 percent has no access to improved drinking water sources. Children suffer a large proportion of this resulting disease burden which results in preventable death and nutritional, cognitive and physical deficits. The Helmsley Charitable Trust funds integrated development approaches to ensure that children stay in school longer, achieve better learning outcomes and ultimately serve as agents of improved health and wellbeing within their own communities.. ...
On 19 October 2017, New Zealand First leader Winston Peters agreed to form a coalition with Labour,[8] making Ardern the next Prime Minister.[63][64] This coalition will receive confidence and supply from the Green Party.[65] Ardern named Peters as Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs. She also gave New Zealand First five ministerial posts in her government, with Peters and three other ministers serving in Cabinet.[66][67]. On 20 October, Ardern confirmed that she would hold the ministerial portfolios of National Security and Intelligence, Arts, Culture and Heritage, and Vulnerable Children, reflecting the shadow positions she held as Leader of the Opposition.[68] However, as of 25 October 2017 her position as Minister for Vulnerable Children had been replaced with the role of Minister for Child Poverty Reduction, and New Zealand First MP Tracey Martin took on the role of Minister for Children.[69] She was officially sworn in by Governor-General Dame Patsy Reddy on 26 October, ...

Save the Children provides care and support for orphans and other vulnerable children (OVC) in communities in many countries across Africa, including Ethiopia, Malawi, Mozambique, Uganda and Tanzania. Save the Children has also been active in Haiti and is building stronger OVC components into its Asia programming as well. Save the Childrens approach strengthens child safety and protection, nutrition, health, education and other critical support services. Our programs are tailored to meet the age-specific needs of the child affected by AIDS, and use whole child programming and family-centered approaches to ensure their needs are met and appropriate linkages to services and care are made. For example, Save the Children supported over half a million children though the Positive Change: Children, Communities and Care (PC3) program in Ethiopia, building upon on a foundation of community mobilization that has been highly successful in ensuring community engagement in care and support for OVC. This ...
The face is involved in 40-50% of patients with burns admitted to the Dutch Burn Centres. Scarring of the face as a consequence of burns will often have a detrimental effect on function and aesthetics, and may cause negative effects on psychosocial wellbeing. What the best treatment is for facial burns, minimising scarring, is unclear. Besides that, there is little empirical evidence regarding the impact of facial scarring on psychosocial wellbeing.. In clinical practice good results are felt to be achieved by treatment of facial burns with flammacerium. To substantiate the perceived advantages of flammacerium, its efficacy is compared to flammazine, a current alternative of care. The efficacy of treatment will be assessed in a prospective randomised multicentre clinical trial. Efficacy will be analysed in terms of number of patients requiring surgery and functional and aesthetic outcome.. Apart from medical outcome, this study offers the opportunity to study psychosocial problems associated ...
When Arifa arrived in August 2010 at Family Awareness Consciousness Togetherness (FACT), a USAID-funded non-governmental organization (NGO) that receives technical support from the MSH-led GHARP II Project, it was immediately evident that she had major communication challenges. At age 17, Arifa found it difficult to have even brief conversations with anyone.. The Berbice Technical Institute had sent Arifa to FACT as a work-study student for a two-month term. At the time, she was studying for a Certificate in Information Technology (IT).. FACT assigned Arifa to be an assistant teacher in their computer program with 40 orphans and vulnerable children (OVC), ages twelve to fifteen. Most of the time, Arifa could be found sitting in a corner all alone. When she did speak, the children made fun of her. ...
This content is abstracted from the HIV/AIDS and Education topic page.. The positive impact of education reforms are greatly reduced by the presence of HIV/AIDS. This epidemic is damaging education systems by killing teachers, increasing rates of teacher absenteeism, and creating orphans and vulnerable children who are more likely to drop out of school or not attend school at all.. At the request of countries affected by HIV/AIDS, the UNAIDS Inter Agency Task Team (IATT) for Education was established as a mechanism for coordinating action on AIDS and education among the UNAIDS co-sponsors, bilateral donors and Civil Society. In 2002, the IATT established a Working Group, coordinated by the World Bank, with the specific operational aim of helping countries to "Accelerate the Education Sector Response to HIV/AIDS in Africa". The World Bank works with several developing countries to create stronger links between education and other sectors, especially health, to mainstream HIV and AIDS in new ...
Over 170 million children, aged up to five years old, will be given the life-saving polio vaccination on one day, 28th January, thanks to Rotarys End Polio Now campaign. John McGill and Val Robinson from Dalton, are joining 90 Rotary volunteers from across Great Britain and Ireland who are flying out to India to join local Rotary members and health agencies to immunise millions of tiny vulnerable children in the hardest hit areas. John and Val, members of the Rotary Club of Furness Peninsula, will be working alongside local volunteers in Delhi, Kolkata, Bhiwadi, Amritsar and surrounding high-risk villages, reaching and protecting millions of children. This includes house-to-house visits for impoverished families who cannot travel to the vaccination booths.. They say the extra help makes a huge difference to protecting India from this crippling and, at times, fatal disease: "Rotarians and other volunteers go out twice a year to help Rotary clubs in the area reach as many children as possible. ...

In a gripping series exploring autism and its treatments, the Los Angeles Times reports that "after reviewing thousands of pages of court documents and scientific studies and interviewing top researchers in the field, an investigation by the Chicago Tribune found that many of these treatments amount to uncontrolled experiments on vulnerable children.". According to results of the investigation, "the therapies often go beyond harmless New Age folly," with many being "unproven and risky, based on flawed, preliminary or misconstrued scientific research.". Moreover, "lab tests used to justify therapies are often misleading and misinterpreted," and "the few clinical trials conducted to evaluate the treatments objectively" have yielded "disappointing results.". The Times reports that "up to three-quarters of families with children who have autism try at least some alternative therapies.". While some physicians and people in the autism "recovery movement … say their treatment protocols rest on a ...

The White Hope Orphanage We specialize in caring for unique and special children. The children in the orphanage include elves, drow, lycanthropes, selkies, sprites, dragons, and more. Were even equipped to deal with young dragons in the event the need should arise. Our Mission: To provide the best possible care to the many orphans found in Rhydin. We specialize in providing for the needs of unique, special, and magical children. Who We Help: Given the number of wars, disasters, murders, and atrocities that happen daily in Rhydin, it is no surprise many orphans are to be found there. We primarily take in the children that most are unlikely to even be able to deal with. Most cities have orphanages to care for normal children and were more than happy to assist them should they be in need. We maintain contacts with as many of these orphanages as possible and they send us the children they are not equipped to deal with. Where Were Located: We have branches in the cities of Moonblade and Taglios. ...
A large number of service agencies work to support optimal child development, but many have specific age requirements (e.g., early intervention, preschool, or school age), or provide specific types of services (e.g., developmental, health, social welfare, or educational). Too often, vulnerable children are identified but do not meet strict criteria for services of the agencies contacted, leaving them without needed services. An example of a program that has reduced service gaps by integrating available services for children is Help Me Grow.¶ Help Me Grow serves as a centralized point of entry for both state- and community-based services where families of vulnerable children are matched to service agencies that offer the support they need (14). Through a single information line, vulnerable children who are likely to meet eligibility criteria are linked to one or more publicly funded early intervention services, preschool special education services, and interventions for children with special ...

Peace Child Orphanage is based at the foot of the Himalayas in the bustling town of Pokhara. It is home to a wonderful group of children who are lucky enough to enjoy the shelter, support and education offered by Binod and his family. When the children are not at school, helping around the house or playing games in the back garden, they sometimes enjoy trips out to the playground and other recreational activities. The orphanage was set up in 2003 by Binod whose vision was to provide shelter, food and education to as many children as possible who would otherwise have had no such opportunities in life. With the continued help and encouragement of volunteers and sponsors from around the world, this vision is realised daily in the growing sea of smiling faces that welcome you at their door. ...
Introduction. The number of children orphaned by (Human Immunosuppressive Virus) HIV/AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome) and those made vulnerable by other factors has risen worldwide, creating peculiar circumstances that may affect childrens ability to benefit from regular education (Chitiyo, Changara & Chitiyo, 2008). Globally, almost 10% of the people infected with HIV/AIDS are children and youth under 18 years, while 17.8 million children have been orphaned by AIDS (Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), 2013). Sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean have experienced the effects of HIV/AIDS, which have changed human lives, along with the shape of societies (Family Health International (FHI) & United States Agency for International Development (USAID), 2001). The overwhelming number of OVC live with either one parent, elderly grandparents who also need care and support, or with poor relatives who struggle to meet their own needs (FHI & USAID, 2001).

Life has been great and it is always a joy for me to teach the young ones; that was what my 76 years young father in law Cornelis said to me when we were having our breakfast at the orphanage. More he said that he feels good to be able to mingle with the little ones. From a simple thing we can create such a happy environment for us to teach and for the children to be taught. It was great also almost every evening to see my daughters teaching the bigger orphans about English too. It has been a privilege for me and my family for having my father in law coming and to stay with us at the orphanage. With his presence I am sure that our orphans will be much better off on their studies. To teach is not just a mater of having a diploma/certificate about it but we have to know how to implement the teaching theories and to know the students quality ...
