Amitofo Charity Association Executive Committee Board (ACA) is the ACC headquarters in Africa. It is located in South Africa. ACA manages the operation of various ACCs across the African continent.
ACC in Malawi, Lesotho and Swaziland began operations in 2004, 2010 and 2011 respectively. The orphanage, primary and secondary schools, dormitories, human resources, hardware software and related infrastructures are continuously expanding. To date, the above-mentioned ACCs have adopted nearly 600 children in their Centres. ACC is also working closely with other community-based organisations (CBO) in surrounding districts to support over 6000 children in these countries. Each ACC comprises an administration centre, dormitories, kindergarten, primary and secondary schools, a library and centres for activity, clinic, religious study and vocational training.
ACC’s goal is to actively expand its care centres to the remaining 51 countries in Africa. Currently ACC has already set up offices in Mozambique, Namibia, and Kenya. ACC Mozambique began construction in 2012 with ongoing work. ACC Namibia began construction in March 2014. In addition, ACC has branches in Australia, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, South Africa, Taiwan, Thailand, and the United States of America. These branches assist ACC in fundraising activities to generate financial support mainly for two purposes: (1) to finance construction project, and (2) to sponsor orphans in the centres or CBOs.
By integrating the African culture with both Eastern and Western cultures, ACC has created a unique model to raise and educate orphans in its centres. ACC endeavour to apply the same model to future centres in Africa. Hopefully, by doing so, all of the adopted children will grow up to be a new generation of Africans who are willing and able to contribute to their local communities. This generation of young Africans may be the hope to fight poverty and related sufferings.
