Hope is a spark that changes lives. AFCA provides hope to thousands of children in Africa.

Fighting the AIDS pandemic is not about us. We like to build connections, not structures. AFCA is distinctly connected to stable, non-governmental organizations in the countries where we work, bolstering existing networks from which continued services can be made available. We prefer not to reinvent the wheel, which keeps program costs down and program impact up. Our partners on the ground not only know their communities, but have served them well over the years. With a deep knowledge of each country’s history and people, language and customs, these partners have the relationships and capacity to extend AFCA’s programs to their people. They are known, trusted and respected and we are grateful for the opportunity to come alongside them to provide needed supplies and training to bolster the good work they already do.

Our Mission

The American Foundation for Children with AIDS (AFCA) is a non-profit organization providing critical comprehensive services to infected and affected HIV+ children and their caregivers. Our programs are efficient, promoting self-reliance and sustainability. Since 2005, in collaboration with our in-country partners, we have served tens of thousands of families in some of the most underserved and marginalized communities in Africa. Our areas of impact include: medical support, livelihoods, educational support and emergency relief. Currently, AFCA is transforming lives in Kenya, Uganda, Zimbabwe, and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
