The goals of this plan are as follows:

1. Prevention Goal: Vulnerable children are supported to continue to live with their families within their communities through social protection interventions and improvements to health and Early Childhood Development (ECD) services.

2. Protection Goal: Improving commitment to child protection by using social work and specifically targeted social protection mechanisms to support children, who are separated, exploited or exposed to abuse so they can return to their (extended) families or other family placements.

3. Transformative Goal: Improving the capacity of the state and other stakeholders to promote the rights and wellbeing of orphans and vulnerable children.
