Start Today, Support our Plan
Health Information is Key to a healthy society, sadly major deaths in Africa can be prevented by adequate dissemination of health information, availing clean and safe water and providing medical aid.
AFAO dissemination of health information is to get everyone involved; caring most about health of others and in particular the health of Orphaned children, the elderly .we accommodate and optimize caring people to save lives that would otherwise be lost due to lack of information and health supplies.
Orphaned Children do not determine the socio-economic status they find themselves in and in which they were born and left.
Those born poor in poverty have a higher chance of being trapped in the poverty cycle if they are not equipped with the skills to exist this cycle. As such child education becomes a necessary condition for children born in low income households to exit the poverty cycle making our appeals for children education support a big step to leverage the future of orphaned children.

From Street Initiative
Mediate, in so far as permitted in family disputes involving children, and their parents, guardians or other persons who have parental responsibility in respect of the children, and promote family reconciliation under our From street initiative ;This will assist our street children access support to reintegrate
Minimize the need for alternative care programs Orphanages will prioritize the need to trace family members and attempt to reunify families that have become separated.
At this point, the orphanage will have to explore, and impartially determine, whether that particular family-based option (kinship) is actually in the best interest of a child. If it is determined that the kinship option is viable, then the Orphanage will encourage the use of counseling to the prospective family unit to help integrate the child successfully.
