About us

Christian Aid is a humanitarian and development organisation that insists the world can and must be swiftly changed to one where everyone can live a full life with dignity, free from poverty.

CASE-OVC Project

Comprehensive Assistance, Support and Empowerment of Orphans and Vulnerable Children (CASE‐ OVC) project is a USAID-funded $38.8 million 5-year award to a consortium led by Christian Aid.

The project aims to improve the welfare and protection of 170,000 children affected by HIV/AIDS in 18 target counties in Central, Eastern and Part of Rift Valley leading to resilient and thriving orphans and vulnerable children (OVC).

It has three main sub-purposes. First, it will aim at improving the health and social status of OVC and their households; secondly at enhancing economic status, economic resilience, and care giving and protection capacities of OVC households and caregivers; and thirdly at strengthening and creating linkages of formal and informal protection systems making them responsive, inclusive and accountable to the needs of OVC.

Activities in CASE-OVC will aim to meet short term needs of OVC and their households, as well as invest in building capacities of households, communities and wider systems to sustainably provide an enabling environment for OVC to thrive and be resilient to risks they face.
