Project HOPE's Low-Literacy Parenting Map Results

Summary

Project HOPE’s orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) program, implemented in Mozambique and Namibia, uses a low literacy “Parenting Map” comprised of measurable child-specific indicators across all domains of critical needs for OVC. This map is designed to be used at the household level by project staff and volunteers as a road map for showing a quick but comprehensive snapshot of each child’s well-being, which identifies service needs and provides immediate feedback to caregivers.

The parenting map form comprises 30 separate indicators grouped into 6 domains of service:

  • health
  • nutrition
  • shelter/care
  • education
  • protection
  • psycho-social

Each indicator represents a commonly desired measurable outcome for children (e.g. attending school). Each indicator is scored by the caregiver as either being completed (scored as a 3), not completed (scored as a 1), or unsure of status (scored as a 2). A map is completed on each child in the household and is designed to be left with the caregiver.
