OUR VISION To build communities in which families are free of HIV/AIDS and are able to sustain all children economically and emotionally.
- LACP strives to reduce the impact of HIV/AIDS on orphans and vulnerable children who are affected by or infected with HIV/AIDS. LACP is a community and faith based organisation which works for the benefit of all, irrespective of faith or belief.
- LACP works to give direct support to children within its community, to sustain families, to keep children within families and to give hope to orphans and vulnerable children.
- LACP works through volunteer caregivers, through elected community representatives and through counselling. It seeks to mobilise communities, to help to empower families and to support their economic activities so that they can become self-sustaining and can manage their lives – including the care of their orphans and vulnerable children.
- LACP works with schools and other organisations to support vulnerable children, to promote their education, and to sensitise and educate the wider community on issues of HIV/AIDS and children.

Psychosocial Support Through Recreation Activities Recreation days are run each Saturday for anywhere up to 500 children with the aim of reducing stigma and stress, sadness and anger amongst these vulnerable children whilst providing them a sense of belonging. Combating Child Labour Children who have entered or who are susceptible to HIV induced child labour are targeted for withdrawal or prevention. Where necessary, they are provided with transitional schooling and are then placed within government schools for formal education, giving them back their right to education and an opportunity to reach full physical and psychological development. They are provided with school uniforms, shoes and the necessary school requisites. Three hundred families of children who have been identified to be withdrawn from child labour have been assisted with IGA inputs through support from ILO/EU
