Zambia Children First/Orphans and Vulnerable Children Program

IBTCI conducted an end of project evaluation of the Children First (CF) Initiative, a five-year, $17 million cooperative agreement implemented by USAID to mitigate the impact of HIV and AIDS in Zimbabwe. The CF Initiative sought to develop and improve on effective models of care and support for orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) and leverage the experience of national and community-based organizations to increase access to quality holistic services for OVC  IBTCI examined how well implementation partners had provided education, health, child protection services and advocacy for OVC in Zimbabwe over the course of the project’s 5 year term and evaluated performance regarding innovative, sustainable and effective models of service delivery; quantity, quality and timeliness of results; capacity development for partners and communities; and institutionalization of models within relevant government structures.
