Our community center is coming together! We’ve realized that providing an after-school snack will be a vital part of this effort. Our kids might not have much to each all day, and will arrive hungry in the afternoon. AFC needs your help! It will cost $65 a week to give a healthy snack to our kids- so we need a sponsor! Will you or your business sponsor a year? A month? A week? Please spread the word and email firstname.lastname@example.org if you can make this tax-deductible gift to nourish the AFC kids!Read More
AFC BELIEVES IN THE UNLIMITED POTENTIAL OF A CHILD FILLED WITH HOPE
Here is more info about myself I am such an awesome design I promise you
AFC is so excited to have found an amazing new space for our Youth Transition Home, Administrative Office, and Brand-New Community Center- all in one place!
We almost can’t believe how nice it is. The move is complete and the Community Center is being set up.
AFC’s Executive Director from Washington, DC, is onsite and will be sending photos soon to share with you- Stay Tuned!
She is helping to set up the new Community Center in the Kolfe district of Addis Ababa, and very excited about the potential for this program to make a huge impact on the kids.
Already we have resources donated to give these children access to many forms of enrichment they have not have access to, including:
-Safe, nurturing environment to play with friends when school is out
-A library with reading area and ability to check out books
-Computer access for educational enrichment
-Art room for creative expression
-Play area with toys
-Program space for lessons and camps
-Access to tutoring and mentoring
-Gathering space for events, meetings, and support groups- and just to hang out as a family!
If you are (or want to be) part of the AFC family, please come visit our new home! There’s lots of room for you- and your talents. Can you teach a special skill or coach a sport? Can you help fix an afternoon snack or help in the library or art room? Contact us to volunteer!Read More
We are very happy to announce that thanks to the generosity of our supporters at the December art auction and private donors, we have been able to rent a new building for the upcoming year! This new space will house our kids in the Youth Home, give us more office space so that we can host more volunteers, and allow us to open the community center programs for our outreach families that we have been dreaming of for so long. We still have a long way to go to make sure we can fund our programs throughout the year, but it’s wonderful to know that we will definitely have a safe place for our kids to grow, learn, and be a family together. Thank you so much to each and every person who helped make this possible!Read More
