Connecting the Dots: A Family Care Model That Protects Children 


As a part of the Integrated (HIV Effect) Mitigation and Positive Action for Community Transformation (IMPACT) program in Malawi, CRS and partners implemented an approach to create a protective net for vulnerable children across nine districts. The program has established or revitalized 604 orphans and vulnerable children committees, trained 7,552 community members and government extension workers on child protection, and has reached 12,710 adults and children with one-on-one counseling and support among other achievements. This audio-enabled powerpoint presentation describes the process of creating the IMPACT program’s community systems strengthening approach to child protection.
