TT&F works in the HIV/AIDS hot zone of Sub-Saharan Africa by helping women & children live fulfilling lives after being diagnosed with HIV.

Tiny Tim & Friends (TTF) is a registered Zambian-based NGO offering HIV treatment, prevention, and care services - free of charge - through the TTF clinic and community outposts to children, adolescents, and pregnant women from the compounds of Lusaka. Our approach to HIV treatment is family-centered which entails recognizing the importance of involving families and support systems in the care and management of children and adolescents living with HIV.

Since 2004, we have been dedicated to preventing and eliminating HIV among vulnerable populations, especially children, adolescents, and pregnant women residing in Lusaka’s underserved areas.

Tiny Tim and Friends have been able to bring HIV pediatric, adolescent, and maternal health interventions closer to the community thanks to the collaboration with other NGOs and the Ministry of Health in Zambia.

     • In the past 3 years, over 300 children have received nutritional support packages and over 250 women and children have benefited through our Elimination  
        of Mother-to-Child Transmission of HIV (EMTCT) program

     • 1,134 clients are currently benefiting from lifesaving antiretroviral treatment (ART) through our clinic

     • 419 children and adolescents (0 -19 yrs.) are being supported with HIV prevention, treatment, psychosocial support, and nutritional support services.

     • 96% of clients at the TTF clinic receiving ART are virally suppressed.

With your support, we can make an even greater impact!


Our services and programs at Tiny Tim and Friends are age-tailored and are all FREE OF CHARGE

HIV COUNSELLING & TESTING SERVICES (HTS):  HTS comprises HIV testing, counseling, and linkage to appropriate HIV prevention, treatment, and care services, including other clinical and support services. In 2022, we reached 2,441 people with HTS.

NUTRITION SUPPORT: Provide food packages and nutrition education (for 3 months) to malnourished children attending Tiny Tim and Friends clinic. Over the past three years, we have had over 300 children benefiting from this program.

SOCIAL AND PSYCHOSOCIAL SUPPORT GROUPS: Support groups operate at Tiny Tim and Friends out of clinical hours to provide social and psychosocial support to children, adolescents, and pregnant women living with HIV. The support groups aim to provide patients with a support network, knowing that they are not alone, alongside providing specific information on HIV.

ORPHANS AND VULNERABLE CHILDREN (OVC)SERVICES: OVC services refer to programs and initiatives that provide support and assistance to children who have lost one or both parents to HIV or are living in situations that put them at risk of HIV. These services aim to help children thrive and reach their full potential. In 2022, we resolved 749 cases under OVC.

ELIMINATION OF MOTHER-TO-CHILD TRANSMISSIONOF HIV (EMTCT): This program aims to eliminate new infections among children and keep their mothers healthy through the provision of appropriate HIV treatment, care, and support. In 2022, we enrolled 135 women.


VEHICLE: The vehicle we used for outreach HIV testing campaigns has broken down and we are in need of a new vehicle. During these community outreaches, we are able to go into the disadvantaged communities surrounding Lusaka to meet people, talk about HIV, raise their awareness, and test them. A lot of people still do not know their HIV status and are scared to go to a clinic and get tested. Without a working vehicle, we are unable to perform these services to the level needed in our community. Additionally, sometimes we have clients who are unable to make it to the clinic for their appointments. Our vehicle allows us to provide services to those who cannot make it to our clinic and provide the necessary medical,  nutritional support and palliative care.

NUTRITION PROGRAM: To support malnourished children, pregnant mothers, and adolescents facing challenges in adhering to medication due to a lack of food at home, our program focuses on comprehensive nutritional assistance. Our beneficiaries receive a three-month supply of food, distributed in monthly packages designed to cater to the nutritional needs of the entire family. These packages consist of locally sourced foods that are easily accessible and simple to prepare. Our aim is to make a lasting impact on the well-being of the recipients by providing sustained support and fostering healthy eating habits.

ORPHANS AND VULNERABLE CHILDRENS (OVC): We offer palliative care and transport support and are lacking the adequate funding to continue these services as needed in our community. With additional funding, we can further expand these services to support a variety of needs: priority care, palliative care, educational, psychosocial and nutritional support, skills training, child protection services and much more.
