Vision and Mission
"To provide an education, formal or vocational to children orphaned with HIV/AIDS and to empower women whose spouses have died of HIV/AIDS so that they can have a hope and a future."
YOFAFO seeks to initiate community sustainable projects aimed at poverty reduction and increasing the standard of living of our communities.
We work in partnership with each individual community to help them realise their own development potential. We invest in relationships and build a foundation of trust, listening, and accountability.
Each community elects a representative group to assist in assessing needs and priorities and together with YOFAFO develop a plan of action. Women and Children are whole-heartedly encouraged to be fully involved in all phases of the development process.
YOFAFO aims to establish Empowerment Centres in each community to provide a physical facility as a focus for group meetings, development and training activities, and resources that lead to the community becoming self sufficient.
Individual Tailored Programs
Together with the committed community groups, YOFAFO coordinates initiatives which are appropriate to the individual needs of each community, such as: Youth Activities, Income Generating Projects (Micro-credit related), Agricultural Improvement Programs, Child Sponsorship, Health and Nutrition Education and Information Sessions, among others.
