Are you looking for a holiday gift, a token for your child’s teacher, a birthday gift for a loved one, or a way to show someone that you care for them? If so, please visit our online catalog and do some shopping! We will send a card on your behalf to the person to whom you are gifting, letting them know that you not only care for them, but that you’ve also given something life-changing to a child.
AFCA supports efficient and sustainable programs that promote self-reliance for children infected and/or affected by AIDS, as well as their families and caregivers. We work in regions that are underserved and marginalized, providing care that is measurable, real and hope-filled.

Climb Up So Kids Can Grow Up provides adventure travel opportunities for individuals and groups. The primary purpose of these trips is to raise funds which go directly to support AFCA’s programs, helping children affected and/or infected by AIDS. As added benefits, you will learn about different cultures while pushing yourself physically. Great beauty will surround you, but better yet—the knowledge that you are helping children who desperately need care will motivate you to reach a summit or hike just a bit further.
In each country where we have Climb Up events – Peru (Machu Picchu and Amazon Rainforest), New Zealand (Southern Island), Tanzania (Mt. Kilimanjaro), and Nepal (Bigu) AFCA partners with respected, experienced, service-oriented outdoor outfitters to provide in-country logistical support.
Come! Climb Up with us.
The Ellie Bib, designed to help keep those pacifiers from wandering away. Perfect for teethers, too! We carry a wide variety of colors and patterns for boys and girls. Each bib attaches securely with 2 snaps at the neck and a snap to keep the pacifier within reach.
Story: For the last 4 years I, Jodi, have had an amazing opportunity to travel to Zimbabwe and work with families affected by HIV/AIDS with American Foundation for Children with AIDS. I have seen first-hand the need for children to have the necessary medical care, food, and income opportunities to care for themselves. This need requires money.
Shortly after my 4th trip, I was given several yards of flannel and wondered what to do with it. This is where the idea of The Ellie Bib was born.
