This project will provide 135 AIDS orphans and their guardians with training, livestock, seeds, and counsel so they may become self-reliant. These children have suffered through the death of their parents...they don't need to fear for their futures and how they will pay for food, rent, clothes or food. Through this project, these small orphaned families will receive the hand up they need to move forward.
Orphans have a tough time moving forward if they don't have adults to help them. Congo has plenty of children who've been orphaned by the AIDS pandemic and they need our help so they can become self-sustaining.
AFCA will provide training, livestock, seeds, and support so that orphaned children can have a shot at the future. With our partners on the ground, the children and their guardians receive tons of support and monitoring so that the project is a successful one. Thirty four families were selected in one area of the country, starting them on the path of self-sufficiency!
Our goal are simple: 1. that children will stay or return to school, having funds to pay for school fees and uniforms thanks to the sales of eggs and extra milk. 2. that children and their guardians will become farmers, owning and managing their own flocks and herds 3. that children will become self-reliant, able to take care of their own needs
