Sustainable Projects Show Great Impact

By Frankline | Partner in Africa

We have another update to share with you.  As you all know, we are working with children and families affected/infected with HIV/AIDs and they need a lot of protein and nutritious food for their body to respond well with medicine.  Earlier this year, we started a chicken project with laying chicks, aiming at producing protein for our kids both at the orphanage and school. The project has been a success with great impact noticeable in the health of our kids, which brings joy and sense of keeping working on this project.  With the words from the teacher, "Before introducing eggs to the meals timetable for the kids, they could not participate well in class, some were weak and some were collapsing at the class, not knowing what was wrong. The general performance was not good for some kids because they were hungry. Now there is a complete difference.  I am amazed for what eggs and beans have done to the general health of the kids as we no longer have cases of collapsing.  The kids can now concentrate in class and their performance has risen significantly."   According to our tracking records, it shows that their body weight to height is healthy and there are little cases of absenteeism recorded related to health issues.  Their faces are bright as you can see in the photos and we are super excited about this project. 

Adding to the organic food we produce at our garden project, we are proud that we are the only garden producing the organic food in our sub-county and we've seen great returns and great impact. Thank you so much for standing and walking this journey with us from the beginning, we have a reason to smile and to rejoice in our work, as we head towards making these projects sustainable, we want to let you know we could not have been where we are without your support. Thank you in a million ways. 

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 giving this year, please keep us in mind so we can continue our good work through 2024 and beyond.  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.
