Abstract: This study is an analysis of the challenges faced by care-givers in coping with OVC burden at household level. Using the quantitative and qualitative techniques the study was conducted among the rural care-givers in conveniently sampled wards in Gutu District of Zimbabwe. The study was largely informed by the Psychosocial Support (PSS) Model- the wheel model by Tigere (2006) and the Ubuntu Theology by Tutu (1994) and Mbiti (1995) who advocated for the strengthening of social fabric through a communitarian approach rather than individualism in child care and support. Data was gathered through semi-structured questionnaires and in-depth interviews.10 community leaders were interviewed while 30 caregivers and 20 OVC completed questionnaires.
