End of 2009....................

The year 2009-2010 was indeed an eventful one. One of our major achievements was the attainment of national office as we graduated from the local chapter offices. We now operate under and intermediate Board status having transitioned from an advisory council.
This present significant stewardship responsibility in terms of effective governance, resource mobilization and performance excellence. As a result of the change in status of the board, the legal status also changed. The organization became a locally registered not-for-profit company and a local NGO in 2009-2010 and is known as AFRICAN CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP, operating within partnership and dual citizenship of ACF USA Missions, Inc. ACF USA Missions Inc, has programs running in Benin republic, Togo, Federal Republic of Nigeria and Uganda.

Finally on behalf of the Board, I wish to wholeheartedly thank the Local Chapter Leaders Brother Peter Charles Okwii and Sister Rose Grace, Fort Portal and Kumi ACF Chapters respectively, National Office staff for their dedication and commitment to serve. The best resource an organization has is its staff team. Your tireless efforts to improve the well-being of the children in Uganda did not go un-noticed. Thank you and keep it up.

In the two Years time, we will continue to be a strategy led organization as the new strategy (2011-2013) begins to guide the way we do business. We shall continue tackling the cause of poverty as we seek to undertake transformational development of communities as we work with International and National partners in the districts of our operation in Uganda.
