Maggie is a caregiver of her two grandchildren. Eli (age 13) and Liz (age 6) lost both of their parents to AIDS. Grandma Maggie has lived a life full of challenges as she cared for her son and his wife and secondly, caring for their children hasn't been an easy task.
Two years ago this sweet family received three goats. They count these goats among their greatest blessings as they have given them three sets of twins! This photo captured Maggie passing on the third set of twin kids to the next beneficiaries in our program. This is a good day at AFCA, one which we also count among our blessings.
Maggie has been able to support Eli's education in one of the best secondary schools in the region. She has been able to meet additional needs like medical care, school materials, food and medicine. Maggie hopes the next visit we make to the area includes a visit to see Moses at school, to encourage him to read hard and become a doctor like the ones who have saved him. We certainly look forward to meeting Eli and his family one day soon.
Please know that your generosity is truly making a difference in the lives of these two children and many more in our program.

Eli and Liz feel your love, and do we at the American Foundation for Children with AIDS.

Angie is 52 years old and is a housewife with 7 children. She was living a very unhappy life without hope until our partner stepped in to help her family through this livestock program. The family’s life was difficult and their income was limited. They had a little access to food and the children were not able to attend school, until they were given a chance ..
Angie’s family was given just one piglet. It grew and reproduced as the family was given instruction to care for their pigs. The multiplier effect of pigs is great and Angie believes she will be able to give one to another household very soon so the project will continue to expand. This is an important part of our program and we’re so proud of Angie’s family for meeting the requirements. They also plan to sell some pigs so they will have money for food and other necessities. Angie is thankful to the American Foundation for Children with AIDS for this opportunity and hopes for continued contact and encouragement.

Let me introduce you to Jill and her family. There are ten people in Jill's home. Jill tells us that the beginning of her life was not easy, the situation was difficult with a limited income and little access to food. This project greatly changed her life when our partner chose to support her family in this project. She was given three goats, and they have reproduced. Jill and her family was taught how to grow their own food, yielding a big harvest from a potato garden. They were able to consume some and sell the rest.
Jill and her family look forward to gifting the next household because the entire community needs to be transformed. They greatly appreciate the American Foundation for Children with AIDS for all that it has done to change their situation, now they can stand independently on their own.
