The Asibavikele, "Let’s Protect Them", is a nationally coordinated and driven programme that facilitates community based care and support to children orphaned and made vulnerable due to HIV and AIDS in disadvantaged communities through the structures of CWSA. The programme involves and relies on communities in the identification of OVC and establishment of foster care and safe homes. Asibavikele has been established in 9 provinces at 82 sites to date. USAID and the Dell Foundation jointly contributed to sustaining the Port St John's Asibavikele site for orphans and vulnerable children. The partnership aims to support a child-care site in the Eastern Cape and pilot a model for caring for vulnerable children. In addition to contributing to the overall running costs of the sites, funds will be allocated to piloting a new model in caring for children living within child headed households.
