Mission

ACFA's vision is "a Mali where all children are protected, safe, healthy, well-nourished, provided a home and an outstanding education that will allow them to be productive and contribute to the social and economic development of the country" We march towards that vision by executing our mission: " to bring hope to Mali's Vulnerable Children by securing for them a brighter future through the delivery of our programs: nutritious food, health care, safe shelter and education." ACFA was founded from the personal experience of its founder, Kadiatou F. Sidibe, who was separated from her mother from age 3 to 26 and was raised by a single father in Bamako, Mali. Our goal is to turn risk into opportunities. We take street vulnerable children exposed to drug, prostitution, robbery, criminal activities, and give them a home with caring staff, food, health care, and education and see them through a upbringing that lead them to becoming self-sufficient, and support their own family and become contributors to Mali's economic development.

Programs

ACFA has 4 main programs: SAFE SHELTER: Located near the Niger River in the capital city of Bamako, ACFA-Mali is the home of Malian vulnerable children. Our live-in staff care for the children on a daily basis. We are blessed with volunteers who eagerly come on a daily basis and help our staff in caring for the children. When our new complex is ready in Zorokoro, the children will move to that location. NUTRITIOUS MEALS: A healthy balanced diet is essential to the children's physical and mental development. Our staff lovingly prepare and distribute our children's meals on a daily basis. HEALTH CARE: In coordination with the Primary Healthcare Center of Badalabougou, ACFA-Mali provides the highest available healthcare service to our children. EDUCATION: Education is a very important component of ACFA's strategy/programs. It is the way to break the chains of poverty. In coordination with the public education systems in Mali, we provide the best curriculum for our children. The standard Malian educational curriculum is supplemented with an added curriculum including arts and crafts, critical thinking skills, English Language instruction and life skills, all conducive to the children's mental and intellectual development. Study time is built into the schedule. While still attending public school, children ages 11 and above begin to learn vocational skills such as farming, artisan crafts, and computer training. At 18, students are encouraged to pursuit further education. Each year the top academic performer receives a scholarship to a university. Others are hired by partner organizations or issued micro-finance loans to start their own businesses.
