Mission Statement

African Child Foundation - is a registered independent, indigenous, non-political, non - governmental organization with a primary mission to provide education to poor disadvantaged and neglected orphans whose parents have died of HIV/AIDS and to help their families to overcome poverty and hopelessness in Uganda through helping them initiate sustainable income generating projects.

Description

Our Goal: - To assist the rural families to overcome poverty and the hopelessness by easing the financial burden of many families who are caring for orphans, provide an opportunity for financial self sufficiency from which the whole family unit can benefit and by so doing ensure that some of the root-causes of poverty are redressed. - To avoid cultivating aid dependency. This is done by providing the assistance in the form of either a loan or a once-only gift (seed money) for the specific purpose of achieving the goal of self-sufficiency. - To provide education and an opportunity for orphans to grow up in a caring family environment, other than in institutional care.
