BOARD MEMBER RECRUITMENT - INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT

A Child For All, Inc., (ACFA) provides a safe and loving environment for vulnerable children in Mali, West Africa. Children who are living on the streets because they do not have parents who can take care of them are welcomed into a home and receive the nourishment, education, health care and attention necessary to thrive.

Founded in 2008, ACFA is run by a small and dedicated working board that gathers monthly. Our board members are active advocates and ambassadors for the organization, eager to make a difference in the lives of Malian children.

The benefits of contributing to a small working board include:

• Easy communication and interaction--board members get to know each other well

• Constant and meaningful involvement provides a high level of satisfaction from board service, and

• The participation of every board member counts.

We especially welcome candidates with personal or professional experience in West or sub-Saharan Africa, including Returned Peace Corps Volunteers and Diaspora Africans living in the U.S. ACFA’s operations has expanded and ACFA operates a home in the capital of Bamako and the Zorokoro Children’s Complex on 5 acres of land in the village of Zorokoro. The Zorokoro Children’s Complex includes a home for ACFA’s children and a school which has started with kindergarten and first grade for children ages 3-6 years old. A library and computer lab is opening soon at the Complex.
