Mission Statement

Providing medical, educational, vocational and nutritional support for HIV+ orphans, vulnerable children and pregnant women in Zambia.

Description

Tiny Tim and Friends (TT&F) provides medical care and case management free-of-charge to the most vulnerable orphans and under-served children living with HIV in Zambia. We identify children and their caregivers who are not currently accessing health services, we enroll them in our program, and we stabilize them medically and socially so that they can be integrated into the public sector system.

We conduct outreach clinics in the poorest areas of Lusaka, Zambia where we offer free counseling and testing for children and their caregivers. We provide transport to our clinic in downtown Lusaka for confirmatory testing and enrollment in our program where we offer a free clinic twice a week.

TT&F has started a women's group made up of HIV+ women who are trained to go out into the community and talk to local women about their rights to healthcare, treatment and making decisions for themselves & their families. They also make and sell crafts to sustain their families and their group.
