Art Creation Foundation for Children (ACFFC) is a pacifist, non-religious, apolitical, NGO (Non-Governmental Organization). Our mission is simple: we serve over 60 children in Jacmel, Haiti. Art is the focus that provides them a future. Our children have been selected based on specific criteria. All of the children were between 6 and 11 when enrolled; they had never attended school nor did they eat on a regular basis. Many of our children are orphaned and were destined to a life on the streets. The children who are blessed with family are still living a life of severe poverty that should not exist in a world as advanced as ours. Knowing that these children now have an opportunity for a better life, arts education, schooling, consistent supply of food, medical care and support is an overwhelming relief to the children. We are a simple, grassroots, non- bureaucratic organization with no hidden agenda ... all we want is for our children to thrive and be children! MISSION Art Creation Foundation For Children is a non-profit arts organization created for education and personal growth of children in need in Jacmel, Haiti. VISION Children achieve self-sufficiency via the arts and education as well as internalize a sense of social responsibility, community and connectedness in partnership with ACFFC staff and supporters. ACFFC was founded in 2000 and has been granted 501(c)3 status. arts education - food - schooling - health care - love
