Mission Statement

The mission of AFG is to promote the wellbeing of the people of Guinea by supporting and implementing sustainable health, social and economic development programs.

Description

AFG’s primary goal is to assist hospitals and health centers in Guinea who care for the welfare of the Guinean population. We plan to achieve this by providing medical aid, improving and upgrading existing infrastructure in health facilities, sponsoring mission trips and implementing disease prevention and treatment programs. We also aim to improve the overall quality of life of the population of Guinea by supporting and promoting economic growth, as well as technological development and integration. To achieve this we will:

  • Build programs that adhere to and improve quality of care standards
  • Improve Maternal and Child Health Outcomes
  • Empower and develop local capacity to address the need for prenatal and pediatric care by training quality health care providers
  • Design, fund and support community economic activities that provide entrepreneurial skills and increase household income
AFG is a five-year old Houston, Texas-based international charitable institution under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code
