Clowns Without Borders collaboration with People's Educational Theatre in Swaziland (SVT)

Clowns Without Borders collaborated with People’s Educational Theatre in Swaziland to develop local capacity for psychosocial arts interventions for children and guardians affected by HIV/AIDS. In 2010, we received funding from Breadline Africa for Project Vuka Mphakathi (Awakening Community) in order to train artists from PET and other organisations in our intervention methods.

Parenting for Lifelong Health: dissemination work in Kenya

This video is about one of the adaptations of PLH for kids in Western Kenya. In cooperation with AMPATH Kenya and the Saving Brains Initiative, CWBSA has trained 54 facilitators in an adapted version of PLH for Kids for mothers with children ages 1.5 to 5 years. Delivery will take place through to 2017 with scale-up of the programme in 2018 and 2019.

AMPATH is conducting a feasibility study on the adapted version of PLH for Kids. Data collection includes qualitative focus group discussions and interviews with parents and practitioners as well as quantitative assessments of parent-child interaction, parenting behaviours, and child behaviour. AMPATH plans to test Malezi Mema in a larger cluster randomised controlled trial in 2018.
