Educate,Professionalize and Empower Small Orphanages

Our VISION is to Educate, Professionalize and Empower small orphanages, in order to enable them to improve their self-sufficiency through vocational skills, agriculture and technologies, so as to enable them to assume their rightful place in a Care System that meets the needs of Africa’s needy children, widows, disabled and elderly persons.
Who we are

“One person can make all the difference for a child across the globe…AFAO is living proof that, although helping just one person can seem like a drop in the ocean, that drop can be a person’s whole world. One by one…we will change the world for the better.”

AFAO hopes you will join us as we lead some of the neediest and underfunded childcare facilities in Africa to help them find their way to becoming educated, professionalized and empowered.
