The study is aimed at finding out the effects of HIV/AIDS in social development of
children aged 4 - 6 years in Kiviu Primary School, Mutomo zone, Mutomo District,
Eastern Province of Kenya. Most of the African communities have not accepted
HIV/AIDs as a disease but it is associated with witchcraft and curses. This has led to a
lot of deaths in our societies hence leaving many children in our societies affected and
In most African societies, the effects of HIV/AIDS have caused a lot of harm in both
the affected and the infected children. Stigmatization has made millions of the affected
and the infected children to develop anti-social behaviuor. The research has shown
this kind of behaviuor especially with street children and in children home.
The holistic growth and development of children and especially the already affected
and infected children should however be considered equally important to avoid poor
social development. The challenge goes to the caregivers, relatives of the orphaned
children and teachers to identify these children early enough so as to accept them in
their status and find ways of staying and dealing with such children.
The study intends to give an insight to people staying with children, working with
children and handling children's affairs to enable them to understand the acceptable
and unacceptable social practices found within the African communities and how they
influence children's social development. These people include pre-school teachers,
Sunday school teachers, parents and other care givers. It also intends to equip these
people with suitable information and knowledge on the importance of social growth
and development and how to monitor its sub sequential progress. By acquiring the
knowledge, the affected and infected children will receive the required social support
which will enable them cope with the problems surrounding the world today.
