Mission Statement


Defending the Cause of the Fatherless!

Description


Afrikids Foundation is the children’s outreach and sponsorship program solely envisioned to give a beacon of hope with a holistic approach to orphans and vulnerable children, refugees/victims of war, children affected and/or infected with HIV/AIDS, street and disadvantaged children. We identify these children, provide for their basic needs and mentor them to become change agents in their respective spheres of life. We give them an opportunity to education, scholastic materials, school uniforms and other basic necessities such as clothing, medicare; guidance and counseling for their physical and spiritual development, among others as we ensure that the general welfare of our children at Afrikids is covered. With the help of friends, families and well wishers, we have been able to recruit 127 orphaned children. These children are only a small representation of the vast number of disadvantaged orphaned children in Uganda and Africa.
