The African Child Foundation is a non-profit organization run by volunteers to support Fr. Henry Simaro and his ACF children in Athi River, Kenya. People of all ages, faiths and backgrounds support the foundation. Many have visited Kenya and provided a hands-on connection by feeding and educating the children.
Since 2006, the foundation has clothed, fed, given safe shelter and provided a quality education to over 900 orphans and vulnerable children. Many have relocated and about 400 children remain in Fr. Henry’s care.
