137, 686 children have been registered for the DAPP ZAMFAM South-Central project exceedng the target of 125,000. DAPP is implementing the ZAMFAM project in Central Southern provinces, the overall goal of the project is to improve the care and resilience of vulnerable populations in the Central and Southern Provinces, specifically targeting OVC and People Living With HIV/AIDS by supporting and strengthening the capacity of children, families and communities. 

Central and Southern provinces have high rates of Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC) in Zambia with 18.9% and 21.5% respectively, the demand for OVC care and support is high in these Provinces. Addressing the growing OVC population is a priority for most national governments across the globe.DAPP is implementing the Zambia Family South-Central project that is reaching over 125,000 OVC per year for five years, with comprehensive life changing activities.

The ZAMFAM South Central catalyst for the change is that it is building capacity of the targeted families and mobilizing individuals to organize themselves into OVC Action Groups and Youth Self Help Groups. ZAMFAM has led to increased life sustaining health services, improved care and support for OVC and increased food security assets. The capacity building held within the community has increased accessing of life-sustaining health services, improved care and support of OVC, and increased food security and asset bases for the families that care for OVC.

At the end of the project ZAMFAM South Central will increase resilience of households to care for children and adolescents living with HIV measurably, the child wellbeing status measurably will be improved due to provision and accessing of quality care and support services. Further, the  capacity of government and community structures will support children and adolescents living with HIV measurably will be enhanced. The ZAMFAM project is funded by USAID and runs for five years.
