USAID Tujitegemee

USAID Tujitegemee is a five-year program funded by USAID and PEPFAR to support orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) & Adolescent Girls and Young Women (AGYW) in Kilifi and Mombasa counties. The program is implemented by AMURT as the Prime partner, and its Consortium partners: The Partnership for HIV Free Generation (HFG), Women Fighting Aids in Kenya (WOFAK), the Council of Imams and Preachers in Kenya (CIPK), and KWETU Training Centre for Sustainable Development (KWETU). In line with USAID Kenya Health Partnership for Quality Services (KHPQS) framework, the program aims to increase access to and demand for quality HIV prevention services, as well as increasing access to quality health and social services for OVC and their families. The implementation is guided by evidence and seeks more collaboration with beneficiaries, other key stakeholders, and private partners. The project contributes to Kenya’s attainment of the joint UNAIDs 95-95-95. It focuses on providing need-based, age-appropriate OVC services through case plans and DREAMS (Determined, Resilient, Empowered, AIDS-free, Mentored, and Safe) services.
