This study collects self-administered surveys completed by orphan adolescent girls in Manicaland Province, Zimbabwe. Concept mapping techniques are also used to gather information from adults (church personnel, teachers, and administrators), as well as orphan teen girls. The project tests whether modest support can retain orphan girls in school through the transition to high school, and whether religious schooling adds greater protection than secular schooling for HIV risk behaviors.
