SEVACA was formed by local women to support the Shangaan people, an ethnic minority, with information about HIV/AIDS, home-based care, counseling and basic aid for orphans and vulnerable children. SEVACA's activities align with their vision of 'upgrading the lifestyle of orphans and empowering them with survival skills.' The group offers holistic support to over 250 OVC (including nutrition, school fees, home visits and counseling), provides vocational training, supports home maintenance for child-headed households, and hosts a psychosocial support camp. SEVACA also supports OVC with home repairs and trains 'young caregivers' (OVC aged between 13 and 16) in home-based care, HIV prevention and child rights. Founded to aid the minority Shangaan people, SEVACA offers home-based HIV/AIDS care, counseling, and health education. The group also provides orphans and vulnerable children with food, school fees, counseling, and vocational training.

Knowledge about HBC has improved among the caregivers and other family members OVC school attendance and retention has also improved. For instance two orphaned children were supported up to A Level and have since passed and awaiting university enrolment Early marriages have also decreased due to the awareness campaigns HIV disclosure has also increased as people want to access care and treatment facilities. The increase in disclosure cases also shows that stigma and discrimination has gone down.
