No matter the holiday or time of the year, you can make a donation to AFCA and/or purchase something in honor of a friend or family member.
For example, you can buy a goat that will help an orphaned family break the cycle of poverty. Or, you could purchase a flock of chickens and help some AIDS orphans start their own egg business! Or, you could buy life-saving medicine, giving a child the gift of life. Whatever you choose, you’ll be giving HOPE to children. We will gladly send a holiday or gift card to a loved one, letting them know that they were the reason you decided to change young lives.
Make a difference in the life of a child, a difference for years to come!

AFCA builds long drop toilets (loos) using recycled materials, providing the families with decent and safe toilets. A solar lamp will complete the package, allowing beneficiaries to use the facilities with the aid of a light.
Keeping the lights on has a cost to it, as well. Salaries, phones, postage, warehouse space, and so much more is all part of the expenses we incur monthly and yearly but which is rarely addressed.
Help us keep the lights on with a gift to our undesignated funds account.
