Early Childhood Development
Caregivers of HIV Positive children are often disempowered and face many contextual challenges that limit their ability to support their children to learn, develop and play. We have found that many children are struggling to reach their age appropriate milestones and are starting school ill-equipped, lacking foundational skills of early childhood development. As a result, the potential of children to develop into healthy, resilient adolescents and adults declines.
Kidzpositive has developed a project to support caregivers to assist their children to learn through play. The project is being monitored and assessed to determine its impact on pre-schoolers attending our clinics.
