The Bantwana Initiative of World Education, Inc. was launched in 2006 to address the growing crisis of orphans and other vulnerable children (OVC) and their households in sub-Saharan African countries with high HIV prevalence. In coordination with national and local government programs, Bantwana provides technical and management capacity building to community-based organizations (CBOs) helping vulnerable families access a comprehensive range of care and services. Bantwana's programs and partnerships affect positive change and a more supportive environment for vulnerable children, from the household to the policy level. Bantwana fosters lasting cooperation of key stakeholders--including government ministries, schools, civil society, local organizations, and traditional leaders--to ensure the continuity of best practices and community mobilization beyond the life of a particular project.
