Mission Statement

African Aid Organization, Inc. (AFAID) is a non-profit organization devoted to providing first-class assistance, support, and education to the Most Vulnerable children in Sub-Saharan Africa. We help these children who are affected by HIV/AIDS or who deal with the hardships of poverty by investing in them and in their future.
HIV/AIDS continues to be a major development, global health and security challenge in Sub-Saharan Africa. It reverses life expectancy gains, erodes productivity, decimates the workforce, consumes savings and dilutes poverty efforts. Fortunately, factors contributing to the problem can be addressed with strategic programs.
Our mission is to provide young girls and young boys with the tools, knowledge and resources to protect themselves against HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted infections.

Overview

Self-reported by organization

In 2010, African Aid Organization, Inc. (AFAID) worked in Kaya and Nioko 2, Burkina Faso, as well as in Edea, Cameroon; three of the cities in sub-Saharan Africa where communities lack adequate resources to effectively respond to HVI/AIDS crisis. In fact, children affected with HIV in Burkina Faso and Cameroon live with little access to clean drinkable water and daily food, descent toilets and other basic necessities; furthermore, the stigma prevent most of them to received appropriate medical attention. 
To reach more young boys and girls, AFAID has developed and implemented a pilot project in Burkina Faso named HIV/AIDS clubs (Student against AIDS) in high schools. Those clubs allowed more than 1300 new boys and girls to cope with our program, including HIV prevention activities, networking and information exchange, voluntary testing; condom promotion and availability; expanded and improved services to prevent sexually transmitted diseases, as well as efforts to protect child rights, to reduce stigma and discrimination.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Program 1

ACCAINC has active programs in Eséka and Mbalmayo, Cameroon; Kampala, Uganda; and Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. It offers community outreach through basic HIV/AIDS awareness and support for families. In 2002 ACCAINC incorporated and added the training of HIV/AIDS counselors, outreach workers, and peer educators as a way of helping reverse the trend of the epidemic in Cameroon. In 2006 ACCAINC began an emphasis on strategic partnerships with other HIV/AIDS prevention organizations. Today, ACCAINC's programs include HIV/AIDS education to young people in Burkina Faso, Cameroon, and Uganda; support and assistance to orphans and Other Vulnerable Children; mentoring trainings of staff and volunteers, advocacy for HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention, HIV theatrical workshops as well as one-on-one sessions in schools and communities. We have a variety of support and prevention programs for affected children and their families. In order to accelerate good result in Cameroon, ACCAINC propose to construct a permanent home for the organization in Yaoundé, Cameroon. Such a building will make it possible for our workers to create a center of HIV/AIDS education, including dissemination of literature, the distribution of material needed to prevent the spread of the disease and the presentation of audio-visual programs, as well as direct assistance for children affected by the plague.
