What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Since formation in 1998, AFC has assisted thousands of children and distributed close to $5 million in aid through the implementation of hundreds of service trips.
Example of the sustainable projects AFC supports include:
Increasing access to education through the building of a school in rural Uganda.
Improving literacy through the construction of libraries in Guatemala, Malawi, and India.
Empowering families in El Salvador through micro-financing loans.
Uplifting spirits and encouraging creativity through the implementation of a music school in Serbia.
Supplying and shipping medical equipment to Serbia, El Salvador, Malawi, and Jordan.
Supporting vocational training and street child rehabilitation in Kenya.
And many more!
AFC Chapters are another way to be a part of the AFC mission. AFC Chapters act as the outreach arm of AFC. Chapters spread awareness and raise funds for local and international projects, and are involved in every aspect of the AFC mission, including:
Engaging and educating their communities about international issues and the AFC mission.
Allowing local communities to mobilize volunteers and resources to support children around the world and in their own community.
Coordinating group travel with members or supporting AFC from home, or both!
Chapters are located in high schools, colleges, businesses, and communities.
