About A Child For All Inc. ACFA Inc
21 Arbor LN, Stafford, VA 22554, US
ACFA provides Mali's vulnerable children a safe and loving environment which fosters their health, learning, happiness, and success.
Our current goals are two folds:
Short term goal: GOAL ATTAINED-ABOVE AND BEYOND
We initally intended to raise enough funds to rent a house of the vulnerable children. Instead, thanks to donors like yourself, a house has been donated to us, hence we don't need to spend our scarce financial resources on rent. WE WILL OPEN DOORS TO MALIAN VULNERABLE CHILDREN IN JUNE 2010.
Long term goal: In the long term we would raise enough funds to build our own orphanage on our piece of property.
We'll work with your schedule.
Meetings take place in the DC metro areaWashington, DC 20005
