A Child For All exists to provide Mali's vulnerable children a safe and loving environment which fosters their health, learning, happiness, and success.


Our Beginning

ACFA's founder, Kadiatou, was born and raised in the Republic of Mali in West Africa, where she observed first hand what it feels like being an orphan in that part of the world. 

Kadiatou founded A Child for All in 2008 with the vision of creating a Mali where all children are afforded the tools necessary for a successful future. Thanks to a team of dedicated individuals from Mali and across the world, ACFA Mali opened its doors in June of 2010 to the vulnerable children in Mali. Today twelve children have been provided a home in the ACFA Mali house in Bamako.  The children now attend school, learn skills, play sports, and finally know the stability and care that was missing from their lives.

The Zorokoro Children's Complex

In light of the country’s increased number of displaced children associated with war and rebel activities, ACFA is expanding its capacity by building a new children's complex, the Zorokoro Children Complex, on a 5-hectare (12.4 acre) site in the village of Zorokoro.  

The Zorokoro Children’s Complex will directly and simultaneously support 250 children and 1000 adults while also providing healthcare and education to the children and adults of the surrounding villages that otherwise lack these and other services.
