Deinstitutionalization of Vulnerable Children in Uganda

The Deinstitutionalization of Orphans and Other Vulnerable Children in Uganda (DOVCU) project that was funded by USAID, lasted 42 months (July 2014-December 2017). This is a final report of the project's successes. Overall, compared to the baseline, stakeholders in the district government, community structures and also beneficiaries (families) seem to have changed their ideas around child care institutions, their role, and the importance of children growing up in family care. The words “mind-set change” came up many times in interviews and discussions. The strategy of involving community mechanisms and para-social workers is cited as one reason for success.
