Passion for Women and Children (PAWOC) (Malawi) and The Teresa Group (Canada) will seek to improve the nutrition and life skills knowledge and capacities of children age 0-18 living with or affected by HIV and their households through three key areas of intervention:
- Increasing nutrition and life skills knowledge and capacity of children living with HIV
- Enhancing the knowledge of households of children living with or affected by HIV on nutrition and HIV-related care
- Providing nutrition and economic supports to households of children living with HIV
Teresa Group will support PAWOC in adapting its materials for use in the Malawian context. Two PAWOC staff members will travel to Toronto in Month 3 to learn from Teresa Group about how they implement their activities and the materials they use, as well as to learn about the political environment as it related to HIV in Toronto. Thereafter, a representative from Teresa Group will also visit PAWOC to learn about PAWOC’s activities.
PAWOC’s activities will work with 180 households (60 in Dzoole A, 60 in Dzoole B and 60 in Mponela) delivering a series of interventions that will target the children living with HIV, their parents and the household unit.
