A Child For All, ACFA Inc.

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.

Fatoumata

Ebola has reached Mali, but our children are doing well and we have implemented special steps to keep them from being contaminated. With this report, we are closing this project. As you already know, Fatoumata was deemed too young to go through the cataract surgery at this time and is following yearly assessments and evaluation to determine when she is ready for the surgery. In October Necker’s hospital refunded the prepaid fees for Fatoumata’s surgery. For the remainder of the funds, we are offering to all our donors the following options : (1) return funds to them by proportion of donation to remaining funds; (2) the latitude to use the remaining funds to support Fatoumata’s future project only; (3) the latitude to use the remaining funds to support other ACFA health care projects; or (4) the latitude to use the remaining funds to support any ACFA project. Please let us know how you would want us to proceed: kadiatou@acfacorp.org. For donors who we don’t hear from we will use option (4). We are hoping to have Fatoumata’s next assessment completed before the end of the year with a visit to Bamako of philanthropic optometrists. At that time we will be informed of her needs for this year.

Ebola has reached Mali, but our children are doing well and we have implemented special steps to keep them from being contaminated. October is back to school time in Mali. Our children commenced the new academic year with much enthusiasm. Their summer programs included both academic and skill building training. This summer’s academic program was built to give the children a head start on this academic year. Last year 85% of our children passed to the next grade level. This year our goal is to increase that performance.. Their summer skill building program included tailoring, woodwork, motorcycle mechanics and at home cooking.
Our work is only possible because of your generosity.

Ebola has reached Mali, but our children are doing well and we have implemented special steps to keep them from being contaminated. This year due to the sporadic lack of rain during this rainy season, our farm return will not reach our earlier expectations. With this, comes the challenge to ensure that we have enough funds available to fill the gap of harvested crop. Today, more than ever, supporting our nutrition project matters. We will invest in vitamins and other supplements to support the year’s nutrition project.
