In Katuba village, Uganda, a village child protection committee was formed to support vulnerable children in the community (mainly those affected and infected with HIV) to access social services. The village child protection committee and the Community Development Officer supported the identification of vulnerable children with HIV and linked them to care. Their caregivers formed a village savings and loan association through which they saved and started up an income-generating activity, which has enabled them to support their children to stay in school and maintain income at the household level.
