4Children Lesotho completed this learning brief to document the experience of transitioning a large USAID-funded orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) project from one USAID grantee to another.  In the past several years, PEPFAR countries have transitioned OVC programs to new partners or new geographic areas.  This learning brief shares key steps and the critical success factors that ensured a smooth transition between partners in Lesotho.  The lessons focus on factors that ensured quality services were uninterrupted for OVC as well as factors that ensured operational and management success.
