About Us

Bantwana works with local communities and small organizations that are already serving orphans and other vulnerable children. Many of these groups have suddenly found themselves having to cope with an increasing number of children as relatives and community members are affected by the HIV epidemic.

Bantwana works with these organizations to expand an integrated, holistic package of care, including psychosocial support and child protection. By working with these small, locally run organizations, Bantwana ensures that all support goes directly to communities caring for orphans and vulnerable children (OVC).

By building the skills, resources, and networks of local programs already caring for orphaned and vulnerable children, Bantwana offers a different way of thinking, testing, and scaling efforts that will shape the next generation of Africa's youth.
