In a country where around 1 in 10 adults lives with HIV, our programme ‘Phoning Out Poverty and AIDS’ (POPA) contributes to the improvement in the standards of physical and social well-being for migrant mine workers, their families, and mining communities affected by HIV and AIDS.
Adolescent girls and young women suffer disproportionately from negative sexual and reproductive health outcomes, challenging their ability to contribute to their communities’ and country’s development.
Young women aged 15 to 19 are twice as likely to die in childbirth as adult women, and half of all new HIV infections occur in young people between the ages of 15 and 24.
Our Girls Education Challenge Project (GEC) in Manica province seeks to ensure improved life chances of marginalized girls through an enabling school and community environment.
"From my experience as a VSO volunteer I know all too well that if the right people with right right skills are not present, then little or no sustainable work will happen"
