TOPIC: Focus on households headed by children as a result of HIV/AIDS and the help available to them to cope with stress and depression.

AIDS Orphan Takes on World
She's just 23 yet she's challenged Tony Blair, been on TV with Bob Geldof and bowled over one of the world's most influential businessmen. Meet Sibulele Sibaca, a dynamic young woman who refused to let hardship get her down and now has the world at her feet.

The Vicious Cycle of AIDS 
Children, who are orphaned when their parents die of Aids-related illnesses, suffer from much more than an empty stomach.

Mental Health Speaking Books
"This is fun for children to use, as sometimes you don't feel like talking to grown ups because it's depressing, therefore I can listen to the book." (15-year-old girl). "This" is a 16-page book – with titles like Caring for Your Household, Suicide Shouldn't be a Secret and Understanding Mental Health (a guide for you and your family) – being read by children orphaned by AIDS who head households across South Africa.
