9.6% of children living in Mali, one of the most impoverished countries in the world, have no means of feeding themselves. ACFA provides lodging, food, health care and education to these children.
Children left on the street have no means of feeding themselves. This kind of lifestyle leads to even more troublesome situations. Specifically, girls tend to resort compromising themselves. Many conceive children they cannot care for and more vulnerable children are born on a daily basis.
ACFA has aided children living on the street and given them a shelter. In the Orphanage a Staff of five takes care of the children, providing them with 3 meals a day, multivitamins, etc...
This program will allow the children to acquire an education and skills to care for themselves and their future families. Additionally, they will be an integral part of Mali's economic and social development.
"Auntie, I want to eat well because my teacher said I can only study well if I eat well and have a good health". - Adama, 8-year old boy, one of ACFA's first two children
