Scale-Up of Care and Support Services for Orphans and Vulnerable Children in Nigeria

by:

The United States Agency for International Development, otherwise referred to as USAID, is an independent agency of the United States federal government that is primarily responsible for administering foreign civilian aid to several countries all over the world.

The attempts of the USAID are constantly guided by their overall agency mission which is to "extend a helping hand to those people overseas struggling to make a better life, recover from a disaster or striving to live in a free and democratic country."

Even though the USAID has its main office in the America, the agency still holds office in several countries, including Nigeria.

The USAID office in Nigeria has recently established a program called Scale-Up of Care and Support Services for Orphans and Vulnerable Children wherein it intends to improve the health and well-being of orphans and vulnerable children in Nigeria by way of developing a sustainable, comprehensive and coordinated program that will potentially help these kids live a normal, and healthy life.

The orphans and vulnerable children in Nigeria are those who have parents who have suffered from illnesses such as HIV and those who longer have parents/guardian and are already incapable of supporting themselves physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

The USAID Nigeria will enter into umbrella cooperative agreements and will award funds amounting to $65,000,000 within five years.
