The Alliance for Africa's Orphanages

“Unknown to the average person, there are thousands of heroes in Africa, people who save abandoned infants, children and other vulnerable populations from certain disaster by creating small orphanages to shelter them. They do their best to give them some food and a little education. Nobody hears about them because they are located in desolate rural areas and slums, defined by poverty and squalor.They have no way to reach out to seek our help, so we have gone to them”.
Arlene wills Allen , President and The founder

The Alliance for Africa's Orphanages, Inc. (AFAO) was established in October 2017 in the State of Florida in the US as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, to act as Capacity Developers for needy orphanages in Africa, and as an Umbrella organization for Country Partners-Kenya and Uganda, where needy orphanages have been invited to join together as Civil Society Actors to empower themselves.

AFAO VISION Is to optimize and empower all small orphanages, to enable them to become more sustainable and better able to meet the needs of Africa’s needy children, widows, disabled and elderly persons, until their need is no more.

OUR Mission is to Educate, Professionalize and Empower needy orphanages and schools in rural areas in Africa (so far, in Kenya and Uganda but, more Country Partners to come) to change the current situation and prove that orphanages have the capacity to be acceptable, and sometimes superior alternatives, where children can thrive.
