What We Do

what we do


AFCA supports efficient and sustainable programs that promote self-reliance for children infected and/or affected by AIDS, as well as their families and caregivers. We work in regions that are underserved and marginalized, providing care that is measurable, real and hope-filled.

Our Mission

Join a Team



Would you like to travel to another country and experience a different way of living while working hand in hand with a community?  If so, why not join us on a Vacation with a Purpose in Zimbabwe, Kenya or Uganda and paint a school, build a playground, distribute livestock, help in a hospital, set up administrative systems, teach English, and so much more!  Each trip is different, but they are all exciting.
