More Orphaned Families are Being Trained!

Goats - Uganda

We're counting our blessings this holiday season at the American Foundation for Children with AIDS.  It's been a great year and we have some incredible projects lined up for 2017.  All of them with the intention of helping HIV+ children and their caregivers break the cycle of poverty!

In Uganda, a second set of orphaned families is being trained in livestock care and gardening.  The trainings involved different methodologies including but not limited to; Questions and answers, sharing of testimonies, self-reflections and interactions, role plays, lectures and demonstrations, field practicum among others. Both in class and field sessions were carried out on the different crops and animal both practical and theories.  In addition, field practicums were conducted to have hands-on knowledge in the identification of different diseases and pests for crops and animal diseases, how to treat and manage them locally, to practice crop spacing and animals housing construction and hygiene.  Your donations have purchased these goats and seeds for families in Uganda, and improved a child's potential in life.

Malnutrition is a serious and widespread problem in Uganda, but you have joined the fight through the gift of goats and gardens. So simple, yet SO powerful!  Your generosity is making a difference in lives of these children and their caregivers.  Thank you for supporting our work!  As you make your end of the year giving decisions, please keep us in mind so we can continue helping children in 2017 and beyond.  We wish you the best year ever, full of every blessing and happiness imaginable, knowing you are a hope-giver.   If you'd like to learn even more about what we do or how you can meet some of the children you have helped, please contact Tanya Weaver at tweaver@AFCAids.org.
