WHO WE ARE
Chiedza Child Care Centre (CCCC) is a local non-governmental organisation established in 2001 and registered with the Ministry of Public Service, Labour and Social Welfare in 2003, PVO 16/2003. Currently, Chiedza CCC is operating in Harare South and Zvimba rural districts.
Primarily then, Chiedza CCC’s focus was to respond to the impact of HIV and AIDS through offering meals and early childhood education services to children who had been orphaned due to AIDS related illnesses.
Over the years, with the advent of anti-retroviral drugs, the organisation adjusted its programs to respond broadly to the impact of HIV and AIDS on children and families. Chiedza CCC designed appropriate programs that are effective in delivering results for orphaned and other vulnerable children in urban, peri urban and rural areas.
Currently, the organisation has developed a holistic model premised on four thematic areas; Child Protection, Education, Health and Nutrition and Economic Strengthening. Program areas of strengths include early childhood education, general education support, and non-formal education, inclusive education for children with disability, Paediatric HIV, child protection, health, nutrition and economic strengthening
In pursuit of its vision, Chiedza Child Care Centre carefully identified its client communities having studied the nature of vulnerability among children. The list below forms the current six client communities identified by CCCC;
