Help vulnerable Malian children leave the streets and enjoy childhood in ACFA's loving care, receiving a permanent stable home, nutritious meals, healthcare, education, vocational training and sports. ACFA's new Zorokoro Children's Complex opened in May 2020 with 8 new toddlers living at the Complex! The Complex school opened 12 November, 2020, supporting both ACFA children and children from the surrounding villages. Our older children who joined us in 2010 are thriving in school and sports.
Over 700,000 orphans live on the streets in Mali, begging for food and money. Many children are exposed to hunger, drugs, prostitution, robbery and criminal activities. Education is a luxury that they do not even dream of. Without a safe home and access to education, these children have virtually no chance of bringing themselves out of poverty.
ACFA provides vulnerable children with everything they need to prosper in life: a loving home, clothing, food, healthcare, education, and sports. The 12 young children who ACFA welcomed in 2010 are thriving - their futures look bright. Seven more children joined the ACFA family in 2020. With your help, ACFA's new Zorokoro Children's Complex will provide full-time care to 100 vulnerable children, and also provide education to 650 rural children who do not currently have access to school.
ACFA's nurturing environment can make all the difference in a child's life. We help children become self-sufficient, positive contributors to Mali's economic and social development.
