In addition, 35 pregnant HIV+ destitute women, 97 newly delivered HIV+women and their 98 babies benefit from the Prevention of Parent to Child Transmission component of the project.

The Seedling of Youth project supports a total of 653 orphan and vulnerable children & youth resulting from HIV/AIDS of whom 318 are male and 335 are female.

The project helps keep these children with their families. 153 are in residential care, 19 of whom are HIV+ children in foster care; 74 HIV+ in six group homes; and 42 are in transitional homes for independent living.
