AFnet brings renewed hope to the people of Africa
For more than 30 years, AFnet has worked within the continent of Africa through strategic networks and partnerships. Having seen first hand the impact our ministry has on the people of Africa, we are ever-encouraged to push forward, continuing the Great Commission set forth to us, raising up leaders, strategically planting churches, and caring for the children orphaned by AIDS, so that His work and kingdom may be multiplied on earth.
What others are saying
Thanks to the support of our partner churches and organisations, AFnet is able to contribute to the schooling and clothing of orphans affected by the AIDS pandemic in Africa. Listen as these partners tell you about their experience.
Founded in 1979, ECFA provides accreditation to leading Christian nonprofit organizations that faithfully demonstrate compliance with established standards for financial accountability, transparency, fundraising and board governance.
Support AFnet’s Mission
Help us to train the leadership in Africa, plant churches and prevent children from falling victim to their circumstances.
There are many disadvantages that orphaned children face compared with the non-orphaned. These include the loss of adult guidance and protection, the lack of emotional and material support, and the lack of adult figures to transmit the norms, values, beliefs and practices of the culture into which the child is born. Thus, in the absence of parents, the question arises as to who is best suited to undertake the parental functions. And so, stepping into that role, part of our goal as a Mission is also to promote positive educational outcomes for orphaned children through the spiritual, emotional, social, financial and material support that we provide through our Orphan Day Care Programs.
Dear Friend and Supporter,
Deeply emotional, and with tear-filled eyes Pastor Bernard took me aside. “You cannot begin to imagine what impact your ministry has had upon my life, and this area… thank you for bringing us Hope… thank you for not bypassing us!” Graduating Student, Stafford, the added: “I worked hard for two years to earn this Diploma. But the Study Bible you issued with my Diploma is really a more important tool to enable me going forward with my ministry, and offering hope to my People!” And then what brought tears to my eyes, was a note from one of our senior orphans, Mildred: “Papa, you were sent by God to this place, and to do this work, so that you can bring me life and hope.” How can one be other than deeply touched by such words, and such deep expressions of gratitude for just doing our job? Bringing Hope! This was exactly what Jesus did.
As for many of you, November represents a time for Reflection and Thanksgiving. And so, as we consider the year past, remembering where we’ve come from, and where we’re heading, we find fulfillment of God’s purpose for our lives. How revealing to know that the journey that we’re on is God in Christ reaching out to us, and through us in love to those that He has called us to serve! His is a love that is enfleshed around the wounds of this world in order to bring healing; a love that is willing to be sacrificed in order to restore the goodness of creation, a love that is resurrected in order to make all things new. Therefore, as we consider the many reasons we have for Thanksgiving this season, may we as the recipients of such gracious love, continue to proclaim and embody this good news through our lives and deeds!
