Bringing HOPE to Namibia
Our history in Namibia
Project HOPE has been working to address the burden of HIV in Namibia since 2002. In partnership with local organizations and in close coordination with the Ministry of Health and Social Services and the Ministry of Gender Equality and Child Welfare, we implement programs funded by PEPFAR/USAID and UNICEF to help at-risk populations across the country access treatment, education, counseling, and opportunities to improve their income.
We focus on strengthening HIV care and treatment and mitigating the impact of HIV on at-risk populations including orphans and vulnerable children, their caregivers, and adolescent girls and young women.
Through our USAID-funded Namibia HIV Adherence and Retention Project, launched in 2013, we work to provide treatment, care, and support to vulnerable groups living with or affected by HIV. We focus on children first — providing services that are responsive to their needs and their family and community contexts.
Through the Namibia HIV Adherence and Retention Project, we have improved adherence to antiretroviral therapy for thousands of people across Namibia. In the first half of 2020, we reached around 20,000 orphans and vulnerable children and their caregivers with household services and more than 18,000 people with health education.
Since 2013, we’ve reached over 100,000 orphans and vulnerable children through family-centered care and support — reducing household vulnerability through a range of activities, like providing startup kits and loans for caregivers who are unable to cover the cost of school materials. We’ve also provided caregivers with business management skills, financial literacy training, and links to markets.
Through the DREAMS program, we’ve empowered nearly 20,000 girls and young women across Namibia with education on HIV, as well as job skills and financial literacy training to help them become more independent. We also provide clinical support for survivors of GBV: In 2019, the program reached over 450 adolescent girls and young women with care.
