Activities and Programmes;
The AFC Childrens Home was founded for the purpose of caring for double-orphaned children living with HIV/AIDS who had passed the age limit to be accepted elsewhere in other orphanages.  It currently houses 14 children full time and 4 part time (as at May 2014)

This programme is intended to serve orphans and vulnerable children living with HIV/AIDS in Kolfe Keranyo SubCity.  Under this programme the children are given food items like vegetables, fruits, cereal and legumes to upkeep the balanced diet that supports their medication.  On top of that, AFC also provides complete educational material, to ensure that the children continue their formal educations without the interference of shortage of school items.

This programme is intended to enable youth living in the community with the virus to acquire skills they could in turn use to make a living out of, or to use as an alternate skill to increase their chances of getting employment.  The trainings were given in collaboration with Government certified TVET (Technical and Vocational Education and Training) Institutes around Kolfe-Keranyo Sub City.
