Support for Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC) for Nairobi and Coast Counties of Kenya (Nilinde) is a five-year Cooperative Agreement awarded to Plan International in partnership with Ananda Marga Universal Relief Team (AMURT), Childline Kenya, Danya International, and Mothers2Mothers. Known locally as Nilinde, this five-year initiative aims to improve the welfare and protection of the most vulnerable households affected by HIV/AIDS by increasing resiliency and empowering parents and caregivers to make investments that will improve the health and well-being of OVC.
Nilinde aims at strengthening household and community capacity with knowledge, skills and services to reduce economic vulnerability – efforts that will reduce the risk and impact of HIV/AIDS and other health conditions on most vulnerable populations in Kenya.[/vc_column_text][edgtf_separator position=”center” bottom_margin=”50″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_gallery interval=”3″ images=”16959,16963,16964″ img_size=”large”][vc_column_text]Project Objectives
