We focus on child development and discipleship Unlike other organizations that focus on community development, we put the needs of children first. We believe that the best way to benefit a society is to develop its children. When the children in one of our programs grow into a powerful Christian leader, they help transform their society and communities. Building up children first, with the help of missionaries, churches, schools and communities, is an excellent strategy to bring lasting change. We believe the most loving thing we can do for children is to introduce them to Jesus Christ. 287 Lewis Scott Rd NE Ludowici GA 31316 Call (912) 654-4864

Some kids have started their own recreational activities (such as kick the can and playing with old tires) but they lack simple materials such as playground balls, soccer balls, bicycles and other every day toys that we take for granted here in the U.S. They greet even the slightest bit of attention with smiles and excitement. It is AOAACF’s mission is to nurture the amazing warmth and spirit of these children. 287 Lewis Scott Rd NE Ludowici GA 31316 Call (912) 654-4864
