Dreams brought to life

Congratulations to our very own Dr. Odwar Lazarus. Remember the past, live in the present and look forward to the future! May your attained medical degree be just the beginning of a lifetime of fulfillment for you.

ACF Child Sponsorship program is well into its second decade of identifying high potential young people from disadvantaged backgrounds and circumstances and affording them the opportunity to realise their dreams. Through this program, we believe that we are indeed developing leaders for a better, stronger Africa. It is a noble and exciting mission.


You can become a Mentor
  • Are you passionate about changing the up-and-coming leadership and future of this country?
  • Are you keen to share some of your time with a high school student?
  • Is there a part of you that would have appreciated some advice or guidance when you were younger, and would like to make that possible for a young person now?
  • Do you have some life and work experience?

If you answered yes to the above questions, you would be ideally suited to become a mentor! Every year, the Child Education Sponsorship Programme (CESP) recruits committed individuals to serve as mentors for our students.

Sponsor a child

You have the opportunity to create Africa’s next lawyer, doctor or scientist by being part of CESP programme. ACF CESP matches each Scholar with an individual or institutional sponsor who makes a commitment to fund his or her education.

Each Scholar’s sponsorship covers:
• Tuition fees
• School uniforms
• Textbooks
• Stationery
• School trips
• Sports equipment and uniforms

Being a sponsor is a deeply rewarding and enriching experience and you can sponsor a child from as low as $50 contribution per month. You may also make a partial contribution over five years towards a child’s education. Please consider sponsoring a child today.

Sponsors receive:
• Semi-annual reports from ACF CESP which include:
– Academic reports on your Scholar
– Letter from your Sponsored child
– Progress reports and feedback

A BIG THANK YOU to all our sponsors and projects partners.

Am a missionary......

Hello friends,

This is going to be an amazing month. I'm going to share a quick update and a few reminders. Remember GoFundMe isn't the only way to donate to this missions trip, all donations are tax deductible, and no amount is too little. Since donations can come offline, like last year, I'll reduce the amount shown via Gofundme by the amount received offline 

Thank you all again for all the support and encouragement. Feel free to contact me throughout. 

 am a missionary.  In some way, shape or form I believe anyone can play a role in mission work, whether you are a "goer" or a "sender".

It is my desire to be a goer, and because of that I am raising money for my 2016 missions trip to Uganda from Thursday July 21 to Saturday August 6, 2016. 

The funds raised will go towards airfare, local transportation, meals and accommodation. It will also support ongoing projects in Uganda as well as the materials and programs we take with us.

Although being a missionary overseas or in a different culture is not the calling for everyone, it is something that I want to do. By no means is it easy, but I love  both the joys and hardships of it. I want to love them, if only because they bring me closer to becoming more dependent on Him.

I'm excited to begin again on a journey that started in 2015, knowing that it may be the same country I go to but my experience and the turnout will be vastly different. I can't say how much I am grateful for and appreciate any support shown or donation given. 

I do pray God continues to bless you.
