The May‟khethele program was launched in October 2007 in the uMgungundlovu district of KwaZulu-Natal and aims to improve the lives of orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) through the provision of a comprehensive range of services. The programme operates at two levels. It provides school-based HIV education and HIV Counselling and Testing (HCT); and personalised, household level attention for OVCs who are identified and enrolled in the programme. The programme uses a consortium approach.
