From Crisis to Opportunities
Our Residential Care Centers serve as a home when there is no living family or community support. In an economically disadvantaged family, the death of parents due to HIV/AIDS invariably results in the disintegration and destitution of the family.
Providing Holistic Care
Health and Nutrition: All CCDT’s Residential Care Centers have a visiting nutritionist who prepares a seasonal menu based on the children’s requirements. Homemade supplements and a special diet are provided to children according to their health status.
Medical Support: All HIV-infected children at the centers undergo medical treatment (ART) and are supported by CCDT staff at the centers to adhere to their treatment. Each center has a visiting pediatrician who assesses the health of children residing at the centers and provides medical support as required.
Education: CCDT ensures that all children at their centers are enrolled in school. The centers engage in-house teachers and tutors to bring children up to the level of education required by their schools and enable them to excel academically.
Future Planning: CCDT encourages each child and their existing family members (extended members as well) to co-create a plan for the child’s future, that includes mapping support networks, identifying career choices and listing potential sources of income.
Psychosocial Support, and Counseling: CCDT engages in-house counselors to provide children residing at these centers with psychosocial support.
Legal Aid: In some cases, legal aid is provided to ensure that children have access to property that is rightfully theirs.
