Mission Statement: 

The African Child Foundation (‘ACF’) is an independent, indigenous, non-political, non - governmental organization with a primary mission to provide education to poor, disadvantaged and neglected orphans whose parents have died of HIV/AIDS. We aim to help their families to overcome poverty and hopelessness in Uganda through helping them initiate sustainable income generating projects

Organizational Statement of Faith: 

We strongly and Constantly focus on Jesus Christ and His mandate to us as believers - "You shall Love the Lord Your God with All Your Heart, with All Your Soul, with All your strength and To Love your Neighbor as Yourself... (Luke. 10:27)"

Thus Christ's Love is our Central driving force in our efforts as we reach out to help the AIDS orphans. As members of the body of Christ, we are motivated by reflecting on God's broken heart for " Orphans and Widows" and His concern that their rights should be protected. "Learn To Do Good, Seek Justice, Rebuke the Oppressor; Defend the Fatherless, Plead for the Widow" (Isaiah 1:17).
