The American Foundation for Children with AIDS (AFCA) is a non-profit organization providing critical support to infected and affected HIV+ children and their caregivers. Since 2005, in collaboration with in-country partners, AFCA have served tens of thousands of families in underserved and marginalized communities in Africa. Areas of impact include: medical support, livelihoods, nutrition, educational support and emergency relief. Support is focused on promoting self-reliance with emphasis on agriculture projects that provide training and core materials. Currently, AFCA is  transforming lives in Kenya, Uganda, Zimbabwe, and the Democratic Republic of Congo.


Tourism is one of the top three industries in Zimbabwe, providing thousands of jobs and supporting thousands of people. AFCA has partnered with Zimbabwe Professional Hunters and Guides Association and Safari Operators Association of Zimbabwe as two key tourism associations who understand the need to develop our children as potential future employees and employers within the industry. The key aim of funds raised in this partnership is to expose children affected with AIDS to the tourism and wildlife industry. This will be undertaken through short wildlife camps where children will be introduced to the environment and exposed to the many facets involved. Children showing aptitude will be singled out and provided with specific basic training and support as required on an individual basis to assist them in moving into a career path within the tourism industry.
