Enhancing Child Health and Development

Children affected by HIV/AIDS are at high risk for poor developmental and health outcomes. Strides have been made in reaching these children and their families with health, nutrition, prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV (PMTCT), and orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) services. However, fragmentation of services during pregnancy and early childhood, as well as across multiple levels from the family to the facility, poses challenges to achieving optimal developmental outcomes. The integration of early childhood development (ECD) interventions into HIV, OVC, PMTCT, antenatal care, and other health and nutrition services can improve health and nutrition outcomes for at-risk children by building on existing resources and networks to quickly reach children.
Under the Kids Around Activities, the BUSA team works with a local organization Tiny Tim and friends (TTF run a range of programs to support vulnerable, HIV+ children, adolescents and pregnant women in leading happy, healthy lives. We work daily to reduce HIV transmission and stigma) to integrate and strengthen ECD services in communities and facilities and support multi-sectoral linkages and collaboration.
Under this program Trained Change Agents and health workers evaluate interactions between children and caregivers, counsel caregivers on ECD topics, suggest age-related language and play activities and local materials for simple toys, and refer families for services. Trained Change Agents and service providers, therefore, link families and health care services to ensure HIV-affected families have access to a comprehensive package of services.

Peer to Peer Inclusive Interventions

This is a follow-up event to all the participants from innovative peer to peer for life inclusive session and also be the graduation for all the participants. The young leaders organize the events with the staff from the special needs school. During these events, we also use radio to have personal stories both from the children with disabilities, girls and their parents on the importance of an inclusive society. Thereafter we take advantage of the International Day for Children with disabilities – where we train young leaders to use radio and football to raise awareness on the rights of children with disabilities and always have a forum to lobby on policy changes in areas that have high inequalities for girls opportunities in football and children with disabilities accessing services.

Sport for Change School Leagues

Under the framework of the sexuality lessons offered by our sport for change school interventions, we focus on two areas which strengthen prevention and treatment of substance abuse, including narcotic drug abuse and harmful use of alcohol and ensure universal access to sexual and reproductive health care services, including for family planning, information and education, and the integration of reproductive health into national strategies and programs among girls and children with disabilities. We run the football3 school leagues at 13 schools each term and at the end hold an annual festival.

Game Changers in Football for girls (Personal Development Mentorship)

Mentors lead these sessions with topics such as developing a personal vision board, Servant Leadership, choosing the right career, personal branding plus more using our safe space mentorship and training guide. Young people with disabilities also take part in these cohorts to promote and raise awareness of the importance of inclusion.
