My name is Jacob Ntandu, I am a member of Orphans and Vulnerable Children Care (OVCC),

I would like to talk about the above topic.

It is concerning about how the Tanzanian community treat or care about ovc around our environment. For I have learnt that many people or families and the caregivers can badly treat ovc because they may not have some one to closely advocate for them.

How fairly do you treat your ovc?, and how much time do you use to listen from them?.

We as Tanzanians should by any means committe our selves in supporting these kind of

children because their our today and future focus on development.

Thanks, I wish you good discussion about this very important Topic.

My name is Patrice Lazaro, I am a member of OVCC Organiztion, and according to what I have got an experience about on how to support orphans and vulnerable children(ovc), it is that these kind of children do need support from the community so that they survive in living. How if the local community concerned doesn't care about these children surrounding them? They would feel desperate, loneliness, isolated and miss their future dreams.

As the community which is suroundined by the ovc, what is our first priority to care for these kind of children? and what is the second priority, and the third one to us as the community to these children?

You are the one responsible to answer all these questions.

@Patrice Lazaro (Puma): I visited one of the OVC centers a month ago. Although they are caring for the child when they are small, I think there is a greater need also to cater them in thier late teens moving into adulthood. unfortunatly many donors only sponsor small children and the youth gets neglected.
