The Kakas Programme (‘grandmother’ in Hausa) serves grandmothers that have taken on the role of caregiver to their grandchildren. The majority of their parents died of AIDS and had nothing to leave behind for the care for their children, and there are no other members of the immediate or extended family who are able to support the family. There is no Government support for these families.
