About Us

In 1822 Liberia was founded as a result of the American Colonization Society re-settling freed American Slaves in West Africa (50 years before the abolition of slavery), making Liberia Africa's first democratic republic. From 1989 to 2004 Liberia endured a devastating civil war, killing hundreds of thousands and leaving countless orphans. To this day, the nation has not fully recovered or been able to rebuild basic infrastructure. 


ACFI is a West African church planting ministry that saw a need to care for orphans during Liberia's civil wars. With generous funding from the Hoover family and Stewart family, two childrens missions homes were established and a sponsorship program was started to help provide for the basic needs of the children. A gift of $40 a month can help provide food, medical care and an education for a Liberian child in need. For more information about ACFI and it's other ministries, please visit www.acfiliberia.info

The Daniel Hoover Children's Village is home to about 70 boarding students and many more day students. The Oscar and Viola Stewart School for the Deaf is home to about 70 boarding students, several day students, and has recently starting integrating hearing students into their classrooms, which has been beneficial for all of the children!

You may choose a child to connect with through sponsorship. Your donation will be pooled with other donations to meet the needs of all of the children at the boarding schools, and you will be able to mentor your sponsored child through your prayers and letters.
