The goal for DREAMS programming is to help girls develop into Determined, Resilient, Empowered, AIDS-free, Mentored and Safe women. Since its inception, the DREAMS approach has been implemented as a public private partnership in ten sub-Saharan African countries. In 2015, USAID/Zimbabwe began implementing programming using the DREAMS approach. Since that time, HIV diagnoses among AGYW have reduced by approximately 44 percent in DREAMS districts in Zimbabwe, achieving the highest reduction among all DREAMS countries. The new Adolescent Girls and Young Women Reaching their DREAMS Activity will play a central role in advancing DREAMS programming in Zimbabwe.This Activity builds upon best practices and lessons learned from five years of USAID experience implementing DREAMS programming in Zimbabwe. The Activity will deliver the DREAMS package, differentiated by age, vulnerability and risk status, in 12 focus districts (Beitbridge, Bulawayo, Bulilima, Chipinge, Gwanda, Gweru, Insiza, Makoni, Mangwe, Matobo, Mazowe, and Mutare), with the potential for additional geographic expansion pending demonstrated need and the availability of funds.
