The AIDS Foundation of South Africa (AFSA) is a development organisation that exists to mitigate the impacts of HIV and AIDS and poverty through the implementation of health and community development projects in vulnerable communities. AFSA was awarded a grant by FHI 360 to implement the Bridge Project: Support, Prepare and Engage Vulnerable Youth (in eThekwini North (Inanda, Ntuzuma & Kwa Mashu).
This Bridge Project is funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and managed by FHI 360.
This program will be rolled out in the eThekwini North sub-district of the eThekwini Metro. The interventions will be directed at orphaned and vulnerable children and youth (OVCY), adolescent girls and young women (AGYW) most at risk, with the aim of strengthening the resilience of the individual, the family unit and the larger community through targeted interventions that address vulnerability at each level. This will enable the beneficiaries to become more resilient, be active participants in their development trajectory, and to negotiate and manage the negative effects of HIV on their economic status. Interventions will develop the human capital of beneficiaries, assisting them to strengthen their productive asset base. Through skills-building and development, beneficiaries will have a better understanding of the job market and become more employable. Lastly, interventions will develop the emotional coping mechanisms of individuals, households and the community, ultimately strengthening the connective social capital within the locality.
The plan is to focus on these 18 Wards in eThekwini north during the program cycle.
