Afaayo Foundation Uganda

managed by I. Kusasira (Communication)

About us

Afaayo is a Christian, non-denominational organization
devoted to the care of orphaned and vulnerable children
in largely unaided rural Uganda. Eastern Africa
experiences tremendous number of deaths due to
Malaria and the AIDS epidemic. As a consequence, there
are over 2.5 million orphans (UNICEF).

The need in rural villages in particularly great, since the
majority of the Ugandan population is from rural villages
(UNICEF), and many organizations do not work in
villages due to difficulties in accessibility.

Afaayo's approach to the care of orphans differs from
some organizations in that they care for orphans within
family setting and within their villages as opposed to
orphanages. Orphans are typically adopted by relatives,
so Afaayo helps with the support of these orphans within
their original adoption. Within this family approach to
care, Afaayo additionally supports widows, many of
whom care for the orphans supported by Afaayo.

The focus of the organization is on eliminating causes of
poverty and disease while providing long-term solutions;
therefore, Afaayo places great emphasis on education. In
addition to paying for school fees (education is not free
in Uganda), Afaayo seeks to provide AIDS and medical
education and especially spiritual education through
teaching and equipping people with the Bible.

In an effort to provide long-term solutions, Afaayo will
use larger contributions ($277) to provide small business
opportunities for the families it supports; thus, reducing
the need for continued support. These income generating
activities may include the purchase of livestock or the
creation of small stores.

Afaayo was started in 2009 by Ivan Kusasira. In sum,
the goals of the foundation are:

* Propagate the practical Christian faith
* Managing a resource center for foster care and parenting of
orphaned, abandoned, and vulnerable children
* Transform the socio-economic status of needy families
* Promote sustainable, community based health care
education and sensitization
* Operate Christian educational centers to promote moral
and academic excellence
* Advocating against child abuse or any form of inhuman
behavior with an aim of inflicting pain

Donations that cannot be used for the project

Dear donors,
when managers of a project haven't requested a payout over the course of a longer period, the German law and our terms of use provide that we (gut.org gemeinnützige AG, operator of betterplace.org) use the money for our tax-deductible purposes. The same applies to the cancellation of a project, where the manager of the project is unable to realize it.

Therefore we will use these donations for the following purposes

Thanks for your support,
the betterplace.org-team
