Pact seeks a driver for the ACHIEVE Rwanda OVC program.

In Rwanda, ACHIEVE will provide case management and mentorship services to vulnerable adolescent girls and young women (AGYW), aimed at HIV prevention and facilitating access to HIV care and treatment for those that are HIV positive. The program will provide capacity development support for local implementing partners to design, implement, and track services received in accordance with PEPFAR requirements at the community level. The program will also provide capacity development support for local prime implementers of USAID PEPFAR orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) and gender-based violence projects.
