The objective of the Child Sponsorship program in Uganda is to provide an opportunity to every beneficiary of the program to reach their full God-given potential with the goal of raising future godly leaders, missionaries and highly motivated professionals to contribute to the development of the country.
HIV/AIDS has left a generation of orphans in Africa, particularly in Uganda, which has over 2 million Orphans. These children have been left to care for themselves and many have been forced to drop out of school. Without an education, these children, and the generations beyond them, have little hope for a better future. Orphans are the most ignored victims of the AIDS pandemic in Africa, and many of them have been abandoned in remote villages devoid of government programs. Their deplorable conditions call for urgent attention. Consequently, ACF Missions Inc. has been providing a Christian response through our Uganda Hope child sponsorship program. The Child Sponsorship Program provides an opportunity for individuals to invest their prayers and finances in the life of a child, who otherwise, would not have the opportunity for a bright future
