A Child for All ("ACFA") is a U.S. non-profit organization with current operations in the city of Bamako in Mali, West Africa. ACFA provides a safe and loving environment for vulnerable children who are living on the streets or who are orphaned. These children are welcomed into the home that our founder grew up in and they receive the nourishment, education, health care and attention necessary to thrive Having been a vulnerable child in Mali herself, ACFA’s founder possess a unique understanding of how to alleviate the dislocation and hopelessness that these children experience and ACFA provides the foundation for these children to grow and become empowered to achieve the futures they deserve.
Given the growing number of vulnerable children in the area, ACFA decided to increase its capacity by building a new children's complex to serve the surrounding communities and support up to 100 more children. The Zorokoro Children's Complex now has a dormitory for 25 young children and the first three classroom of a school are almost completed. Zorokoro will also include a healthcare complex and a sports complex. ACFA's vision to empower Mali's children to achieve a future they deserve is only continued by the work of our supporters and volunteers across the globe.

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.
