Through integrated programming, ZACOP and Episcopal Relief & Development provide critical care and support for vulnerable families with young children affected by HIV/AIDS. The Moments That Matter® (MTM), a program partnership of Episcopal Relief & Development, focuses on strengthening the role of caregivers in nurturing care and stimulation of their children while supporting families to improve health, nutrition and livelihoods. Our goal is to ensure young children reach the developmental milestones that help them live healthier and more prosperous lives. The program leverages the assets of Episcopal and Anglican churches with a network of local leaders and trained ECD volunteers who lead groups for caregivers and playgroups for children, make monthly home visits and provide referrals to needed services. MTM also addresses the importance of fathers’ engagement with children in their development.
