Initiated since 2009, the project Enhancing HIV/Orphans and Vulnerable Children Programme with Holistic Housing Solutions (EHOPHHS) and its extension Chab Pdeum Chivit Thmey (CCT) reached the final evaluations, conducted on June 19 to 30. The three-year project that launched Habitat Cambodia’s housing project for people infected by HIV/Aids and children and youth orphaned because of HIV/Aids have reached a final stage.
During the evaluation, 64 families were randomly selected and invited for the group discussions and interviews in Phnom Penh, peri-Phnom Penh, Kandal, Kompong Speu and Prey Veng. The activity aimed to assess the effectiveness and efficiency of the project implementation and to capture initial outcomes that the project has contributed to the target beneficiaries. It also allowed the documented of good practices, lessons learned and recommendations for further implementation of the project.
The partnership with four organizations that specialize in serving PLWHA and OVC through the two projects were able to support 476 of HIV/AIDS and OVC families with adequate housing, livelihood, Water and Sanitation in Phnom Penh, Kandal, Kompong Speu and Prey Veng.
