PEPFAR's annual planning process is done either at the country (COP) or regional level (ROP).
PEPFAR's programs are implemented through implementing partners who apply for funding based on PEPFAR's published Requests for Applications.
Since 2010, PEPFAR COPs have grouped implementing partners according to an organizational type. We have retroactively applied these classifications to earlier years in the database as well.
Also called "Strategic Areas", these are general areas of HIV programming. Each program area has several corresponding budget codes.
Specific areas of HIV programming. Budget Codes are the lowest level of spending data available.
Expenditure Program Areas track general areas of PEPFAR expenditure.
Expenditure Sub-Program Areas track more specific PEPFAR expenditures.
Object classes provide highly specific ways that implementing partners are spending PEPFAR funds on programming.
Cross-cutting attributions are areas of PEPFAR programming that contribute across several program areas. They contain limited indicative information related to aspects such as human resources, health infrastructure, or key populations programming. However, they represent only a small proportion of the total funds that PEPFAR allocates through the COP process. Additionally, they have changed significantly over the years. As such, analysis and interpretation of these data should be approached carefully. Learn more
Beneficiary Expenditure data identify how PEPFAR programming is targeted at reaching different populations.
Sub-Beneficiary Expenditure data highlight more specific populations targeted for HIV prevention and treatment interventions.
PEPFAR sets targets using the Monitoring, Evaluation, and Reporting (MER) System - documentation for which can be found on PEPFAR's website at https://www.pepfar.gov/reports/guidance/. As with most data on this website, the targets here have been extracted from the COP documents. Targets are for the fiscal year following each COP year, such that selecting 2016 will access targets for FY2017. This feature is currently experimental and should be used for exploratory purposes only at present.
Years of mechanism: 2007
PCI's work with the Africa KidSAFE program ("Kid"; "Shelter, Advocacy, Food, Education") began in 2005,
with the objective of consolidating and expanding a safety net of civil society organizations (CSO) and
government institutions that can effectively meet the immediate and long-term needs of street and at-risk
children in Zambia. Related to this overall objective are four results: 1) Reduced number of at-risk children
moving from their communities to the street.; 2) Increased number of children moving from the streets back
to communities through family and community reintegration; 3) Increased number of children benefiting from
high quality street- and facility-based services; and 4) Increased public awareness and participation in
protecting and promoting the rights of children on the streets. A cross-cutting objective is to increase
capacity of civil society organizations and government institutions to intervene effectively at a national level
for the benefit of street children and those at risk of ending up on the streets.
The Africa KidSAFE program has been an active member of the USG/Zambia OVC forum and will seek to
collaborate and link with other OVC efforts such as the RAPIDS project, other Track 1.0 OVC projects
operating in Zambia, and other donor-supported and GRZ efforts. PCI has a very close working relationship
with the Ministry of Community Development and Social Services and the Ministry of Youth, Sports and
In COP 2009 period, PCI will reach 10,000 OVC, as the network expands to other parts of the country. The
primary beneficiaries of the program are children (generally below 18 years of age); whose situation on the
streets reflects the following:
•Living essentially full-time on the streets, including nights;
•Spending some portion of their days or nights on the streets, who may or may not be homeless;
•Staying at centers established for the care of street children; and
•Living at home and who are not currently active on the streets, but who are considered to be at-risk of
ending up on the streets
In addition, PCI will train a further 200 providers to provide effective services to street children. Children will
be provided with services in at least four core program areas, such as shelter, health care, education, and
psychosocial support. Implementing partners include Rainbow Project (Ndola); Friends of Street Children
(Kitwe); Sables Drop in Centre (Kabwe); and in Lusaka: Flame, Fountain Of Hope, Chisomo, St. Lawrence
Home of Hope, Jesus Cares Ministries, Messiah Ministries, Lazarus Project, Mapode, Mthunzi Centre,
Lupwa Lwabumi Trust, Children's Transformation Trust, Barefeet, an arts performing group Cicitekelo
project in Ndola. In Lusaka: Zambia Shanti, YOFOSO (Youth for Sport, Rehabilitation, and Restoration) ,
Anti Aids Teachers Association Zambia (AATAZ) and Socli
The PCI/KidSAFE program will continue to focus on strengthening critical coordination and logistical support
to the network, and provide technical support, training, and limited financial and material assistance to
partner organizations. KidSAFE is also facilitating much wider involvement in issues relating to street
children, as a more sustainable approach to promoting and protecting street children's rights and as a
means of promoting public awareness and sustainable involvement.
PCI/KidSAFE members will work in these communities with a primary prevention strategy to complement
"curative" interventions with children on the streets or in centers. Preventive activities will include a range of
small micro-credit support activities targeting caregivers of children on or formerly on the streets, and
community sensitization campaigns on child rights, child abuse, child care, etc. in targeted zones using
drama and discussion groups.
PCI will continue to use its "outreach" program to reach children on the streets through street workers or
street educators, at times convenient and in ways appropriate to them. Outreach helps to establish trust and
a quality relationship with the child, and for understanding the individual needs and aims of each child,
prerequisites for withdrawing children from the streets. As children come in contact with KidSAFE
implementing partners—through contact with an outreach worker or the mobile health team, or when visiting
KidSAFE drop-in centers, feeding programs, or transit centers—their background will be documented
carefully through thorough one-on-one sessions with a staff member, with the ultimate objective of
permanent reintegration with his or her extended family or other suitable guardian. If there is a family
member, (immediate or extended) or community contacts that the child is willing to return to, efforts are
made to trace them. If the family or community can be located and is willing to accept the child,
reintegration is encouraged and facilitated, as long as it is determined not to pose a threat to the child's well
Mobile Health: PCI will sub-contract a partner to increase access to medical services to street children due
to their increased vulnerability to disease and injury on the streets through violence, sexual abuse, poor
nutrition, and lack of hygiene, which lead to high levels of morbidity and mortality. PCI's mobile health unit
serves children on the street and in the drop-in centers, and children with special needs are linked to
government health facilities for higher level clinical care. KidSAFE partners will psychologically prepare
children for integration into a more structured life of the centers or home by providing an opportunity for
them to think clearly about the transition from the street, get all their questions about entering a center or re-
entering community life answered, or receive the necessary guidance and counseling.
Since substance abuse constitutes one of the main barriers for children on the streets to access services,
PCI will continue to provide training on prevention activities, how to work with intoxicated children, and the
detoxification process. PCI will also provide support to highly vulnerable girls. Since girls account for up to
20 percent of children working or living on the streets, PCI will organize training for partners and services
related to sexual abuse, commercial sex activities, and health-related issues such as tuberculosis, sexually
transmitted infections, HIV/AIDS, and pregnancies will be provided. In addition, PCI raise awareness to
target the most at-risk households and focus on specific conflicts which may lead children to the streets,
child labor issues, child abuse, and sensitizing children on their basic rights.
PCI will continue its work with the soccer league, which has demonstrated that street children can be
Activity Narrative: successfully engaged in constructive activities where inhalants are prohibited. PCI will add a basketball
and/or volleyball league to the ongoing soccer league in order to attract a greater range of children,
including more girls. PCI plans to continue to engage the private sector in order to support these activities
and also build greater public awareness about street children.
PCI/ KidSAFE and its members will continue working with the targeted Districts strengthening the capacity
of the 10 District Committees for Street children.
As described above, this project is primarily focused on youths, and they will participate in all aspects of the
program. Specific examples of how youth will be engaged include the design and evaluation of the
retreat/camps, the Club-House prevention strategy, the recreation/arts program, and the activities of the
drop-in and residential centers. Under prevention PCI/ KidSAFE members will also build and strengthen
capacity with the local community structures in the 20 targeted communities.
PCI will build on the monitoring systems and tools already in place with the KidSAFE partners to assess
progress on project indicators and will experiment with new approaches to measuring service quality and
monitoring/evaluating changes in children's well-being, The monitoring system starts with data collected on
individual children and on partner program services, and is aggregated through quarterly reports prepared
by partners and submitted to PCI, which then compiles, analyzes and reviews this information with project
partners. The child intake forms and KidSAFE database serve as important sources of project data.
Periodical meetings and annual program review meetings will be held with implementing partners and other
key stakeholders, including government, during which monitoring data are reviewed with partners and
beneficiaries, and decisions made about program modification based on the results. All targets will be
reached by September 30, 2010.
