No ACFFC youth are hungry. They are strong and if ill, they have medical care. All have a roof over their heads and clean water to drink. Same for their families. No one lacks for the basics. Otherwise, they could not look beyond. Basic necessities are a requirement for progress and change.
If a child can make a papier mache bowl or bird, he or she will never starve, become chattel, beg or worse. That is the premise. Now they are master artisans, painters, photographers and mosaic artists who are changing the face of their home city of Jacmel and more! The arts and the business of art create their future.
Mission - Art Creation Foundation For Children is a non-profit arts organization created for education and personal growth of children in need in Jacmel, Haiti.
VISION - Children achieve self-sufficiency via the arts and education as well as internalize a sense of social responsibility, community and connectedness in partnership with ACFFC staff and supporters
All of our youth attend school. School is not free in Haiti. We pay for registration, books, uniforms, school supplies, exam fees, tutors, and tuition other than for the first three grades. In addition, we have our own curriculum which includes critical thinking, creativity as a process, community service, collaboration, environmentalism, and social justice.
