African Solutions to African Problems (ASAP) identifies emerging groups of women caring for orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) in rural communities in the Eastern Cape (EC), South Africa. ASAP has a decade of experience working in the EC and has developed a 6 year Model with the objective of scaling-up broad-based care to OVC. The Model guides, supports and builds the women’s capacity to establish a professional organisational hub in drop-in centres and creates sustainable organisations which are able to scale-up care to OVC. The drop-in centres provide OVC with nutrition, school uniforms and shoes, psychosocial support, access to education, health services and social welfare grants and youth development. ASAP provides capacity building training in Organisational Development, Child Care, First Aid and Healthcare for the women, Permaculture and organic gardens with fruit trees and chickens for food security, community outreach activities and grandmother programmes to strengthen families. In this manner ASAP ensures holistic development of OVC to enable them to grow up as valuable members of society.
