Services we offer
Children Tariro provides direct services to the child through a holistic approach to ensure that children are healthy, safe, schooled, and in stable environments. Therefore, interventions focus on Case Management, Access to Health/ HIV services, Safety, Protection, Economic Strengthening and Access to Education (ECD, Primary and Secondary.)
Households and communities are supported through economic strengthening activities and child protection structures to provide direct support to the child. Furthermore, government systems will be supported and strengthened to provide adequate service required by the child for improved well-being. At all these service points, cross cutting issues of child and adult participation, disability, case management and gender are mainstreamed. This is done within the Government of Zimbabwe and USAID guidelines and priorities.
