I joined the board of AFCA after volunteering for them for the last two years and seeing first hand how they help the children of Africa. I became so impressed with the fact that they are always helping the many groups they work with towards self-sufficiency. Helping them to help themselves. Each solution is unique to them. It might be herds of goats in Zimbabwe, or greenhouses to grow food in Kenya. They learn exactly what a specific group needs and try to find the best way to help them. Once they are able to provide for themselves then AFCA moves on. One of the best charities I have seen.

As a current Board Member, I have witnessed the tremendous impact that AFCA has had on thousands of families in Africa that have been affected by the aids virus and related illnesses. This dedicated team of volunteers is truly making a big difference on the health and well being of these families. AFCA has been very successful enabling sustainable programs in Uganda, Kenya, Zimbabwe, and the Congo - these programs address health care, nutrition, housing, and education. It's great to see AFCA and partners making such a positive impact!

As the current acting Board President I can attest to the incredible dedication and commitment of those involved with AFCA. Although we are small in size and limited in resources, I never cease to be amazed by what our team is able to accomplish. In terms of "direct return on investment" it is hard for me to imagine a more effecient and effective organization than AFCA. A multitude of children have hope for their futures as a result of the work of AFCA and its partners. I am proud to be associated with the AFCA staff, board members, partners and volunteers.
