Alec is 11 years old and lives with his aunt.  His mother declined  her responsibilities and left the country. Alec has a twin brother who is HIV- negative. He was first tested in 2011. The mother started treatment but the child didn’t and this is when she left.  Alec became very sick and his aunt decided to care for him so that he could start medication.  Unfortunately, due to poor nursing by the aunt to the child during his bad state, the aunt was also infected and both are on treatment.

Your support of this project has greatly changed the life of this child as his school fees have been paid.  Alec is doing well and is very active in what he does. One can see the great improvement compared to his previous state. He is currently active in the support groups and has impeccable adherence levels. Alec is now in class 3 and he has been scoring good marks and conveys good morals. He is good in co-curriculum activities. His aunt extends her gratitude to the AFCA for the support which has been life-changing for Alec and so many other children.  

The team here at the American Foundation for Children with AIDS thanks you for supporting this project and the work we do for the children in Africa.  If you would 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.

Hallie just turned 12 and is a bright student.  She lives with her mother and three younger siblings.  Life has been difficult for their family, battling sickness and poverty.  Hallie was attending classes on and off due to the lack of school fees. 

Since being accepted into the school fee program, Hallie has been able to attend classes more regularly and her grades are improving.  She has even been promoted to the next level.  A bright smile now appears on her face and she feels hopeful of a good future.  You have given this to Hallie because of your generosity. 

The team here at the American Foundation for Children with AIDS thanks you for supporting this project and the work we do for the children in Africa.  As you start to make decisions regarding your end of year giving, please keep us in mind so we can continue our good work into 2019 and beyond.  We wish you a new year full of many blessings and as much hope as you have shared with us.  If you would 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.

Matt and Sylvia
Matt and Sylvia

Matt is 12 years old and is one of six siblings.  His parents are long divorce and his mother, Sylvia, is struggling with heart disease. This sweet family lives in an informal settlement with other loved ones and close friends.  Their story is one of heart ache and struggle and so much sickness.  It would be so easy to give up and let the pain take over.  However, do you see that beautiful smile on Matt's face?

Matt is supported by our school fee project, and this gives him all the hope he needs to keep going!  Knowing he is supported and loved by strangers motivates Matt to do well.  And boy does he do well!  Matt is at the top of his class.  His grades are excellent, but that is not the only thing that takes him to the top.  Matt is incredibly motivating to the younger students in his school.  They look up to him and follow his positive outlook and work ethic.  Thank you to our donors, without your generosity this would not be possible.  Your love reaches Matt in Kenya and beyond!

This sweet set of twins has been on my mind a lot lately.  Ali and Devon are orphans and are currently living with their grandmother.  Ali started a new medications while Devon is having a difficult time finding the right combination of drugs.  The struggle to get through each day healthier than the last keeps them from attending school, missing the last two terms.  Villagers are currently helping them with food, understanding the importance of nutrition in keeping them well.  Imagine a whole village becoming your family and supporting your dream to return to school.  Ali and Devon are enrolled for the next term, counting on their village to get them back to where they need to be!

Today was a good day for Ella.  She woke up early to help her mother with breakfast and her mother was smiling!  Her mother, Anna, was feeling good for the first time in more than two weeks.  She wasn't out of bed much in that time, leaving Ella and her brother to care for their home and Anna.  Their little garden was also watered as the children cared for the tender plants.  It's hard for us to imagine this kind of responsibility for young children, but they have been living this life for several years with no other family to turn to for help.

After having breakfast with her mother, Ella left for school with her brother.  They're both feeling strong and healthy so they feel good about their studies and can easily concentrate on new material.  Ella scored the highest grade in the class on her mathematics exam.  With a huge smile on her face, she tells us that we helped make this all possible by accepting her into the program.  We in turn thank you, our generous donors, for helping Ella and her classmates succeed.  Please know that you really do make a difference in the lives of these children!

Our teams here at the American Foundation for Children with AIDS and our partners in Africa thank you for supporting this project and the work we do for the children in in our programs.  If you would 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.
