Mission Statement: (See Web Site For Updated Information)
our mission is to mitigate the social, economical and political causes of their vulnerabilities so as to improve on the life of the disadvantaged livelihoods in the community.
Afsco is a Community Based Initiative that started way back in 2007 with the plight of transforming the disadvantaged livelihoods in eastern Uganda live a better life. We are situated in Nakanyonyi, Bugembe Town Council, Jinja district, which lies 80kms East of Kampala city, Ugandas capital.

Uganda as a developing country is among other problems, afflicted by Civil wars, hunger, economic stagnation, extreme poverty, low literacy levels, and the AIDS pandemic that continues its deadly foray into every village. This calls for innovative actions that are designed and implemented to bring about change. Afsco is actively pursing this at the grass roots.

As development partners, non-governmental organizations are proving to be more effective at grass roots where government hands cannot reach. Afsco is one of the few grass roots organization based in the Eastern Uganda offering educational, medical and nutritional services to the rural communities as well as helping to facilitate their social, spiritual, Educational and economical well being.

We derive our support from the valuable services of volunteers, friends, sympathizers, well-wishers, Christian and non-Christian resources as well as our dear partners in-country and abroad who offer financial, moral, educational and material support to facilitate our activities.

The founders of the initiative are much concerned about the increasing poverty levels, high prevalence rate of HIV/Aids, increasing number of orphans without any assistance, high unemployment, lack of respect of human rights and high illiteracy levels within the community.
