One to One Children’s Fund is a UK-based charity that works with vulnerable and traumatised children, helping to rebuild the lives of those affected by disease, trauma and disability. The charity has been working in Africa for more than ten years, in partnership with some incredible local organisations. We have focussed largely on issues surrounding HIV/AIDS and have facilitated significant improvements in access to treatment and quality of care throughout sub-Saharan Africa and, in particular, in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. We work closely with communities and schools to promote the well-being of children born with HIV, and the sexual health and life skills education of adolescent girls. One to One Children's Fund is registered as a South African NGO - One to One Africa Children's Fund and will shortly open an office in East London, Eastern Cape.

One to One Africa Children's Fund has an exciting vacancy for the organisation's first Programme Manager. Our areas of programmatic interest for the future include: prevention of mother to child transmission of HIV, mother and child ART Support, empowering adolescent girls, adolescent friendly health and HIV services at clinics and development of targeted interventions for vulnerable under 5s.
