August 22, 2014 Pretoria: South Africa and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) on Friday signed an agreement that will assist government to deliver support to the country’s children.

The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on Government Capacity Building and Support (GCBS) Project was signed in Cape Town by Minister of Social Development Bathabile Dlamini and USAID South Africa Mission Director Cheryl Anderson.

The agreement, which will run for five years, seeks to enhance the capacity of the department and government in general, in supporting orphans, vulnerable children and youth.

The agreement also focuses on strengthening the department’s response in addressing social and structural barriers that increase the vulnerability of orphans, vulnerable children and youth to HIV, sexually transmitted infections and TB.

The MoA emanates from the US/Africa Summit which was held at the beginning of the month in Washington. President Jacob Zuma and Vice President Joe Biden had at the summit reached an understanding on a number of development issues that the countries could collaborate on.
