CABA face problems in school in terms of disclosing their identities in school due to social stigma regarding AIDS. So, through this project, it proposed to intervene in school interms of advoacy and to mitigate social stigma regarding AIDS in school. CABA are in double trauma from families, society and schools. It has been idenfied that, there were no policy rights for CABA. There is only cash transfer provision. Government used to provide 1000 NPR for CABA children but only few organization and CABA has access to this benefits . So, this project is targetted to do policy advocacy for CABA.
Underlining such policy gaps for CABA, this proposed project runs in three modules: Research, Communication/support &Advocacy/lobbying of CAB A (Children Affected by HIV/AIDS).
