Objectives: The objective of the Child Sponsorship 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 governmental programs. Their deplorable conditions call for urgent attention.
Scope of the Program
The program caters for the most vulnerable children in the primary and secondary school, including those who progress to the university in the Kabarole and Kumi Districts of Uganda.
In addition, ACF Missions provides:
- Seed money for those who are not able to continue to the university or unemployed to start up a business
- Medical support to the sponsored children
- Spiritual counseling
ACF Missions Inc. uses the following criteria to select the beneficiaries:
- Must be an orphan
- No living relative to care for him/her
- No other source of sponsorship inheritance
ACF Missions works with nationals on the ground to motivate the children for academic excellence and to become godly citizens and leaders in their community. Churches, organizations, and individuals are our partners in this daunting task. We request you to be a part of this effort to provide these children the access to basic education to improve their lives. You can help impact Africa, one child at a time. Your gift of:
- $30 per month pays for school fees, uniform, meals, and medical care for a child in primary/secondary school
- $1000-$2000 per year pays for a child to the university, depending on the course of study/type of school
- Two people can team up to sponsor a child in the university

At present, we have a waiting list of about 25 children at the primary, secondary, and university level. These orphans need sponsors so they can get the education they need.
- At the end of 2017 school year, about 20 students have graduated from the university and other institutions of higher learning in Uganda, including a medical doctor, nurses, computer and information technologists, accountants, administrators, and other professionals. Many of these graduates have started impacting their communities and are assisting with the local resources needed to sustain our programs. One of the students is the administrator of ACF Missions’ health center in Kigarama, Kabarole district in Uganda.
