Through ACFS interventions of Toy Libraries, ECD, Child Care, Teenage Girl’s Clubs, structured homework support, Computer skills training and development, food gardens and nutrition support young children are afforded an opportunity to reach their full potential regardless of their socio-economic conditions. By focussing on education and nutrition support daily ACFS plays a vital role in reversing some of the vulnerabilities that these children are born into.
