Tateni provides home based care for HIV/Aids infected and affected people in Mamelodi. It currently provides support for 450 patients and a similar number of orphans and vulnerable children. Over the past few months the number of drop-in-centres that Tateni operates has increased from three to five. These drop-in-centre operate every weekday afternoon (after school) and during school holidays. Here the kids get a meal, are assisted with their homework and receive other forms of psycho-social support. They are hoping to extend the psycho-social support offered to children that attend the drop-in-centres. This includes counselling and training in life skills, taking kids for outings, assisting them with their homework and offering them art, sport or other creative activities.
