We’re excited to reveal a bold new logo for the ACFS: Advancing African Children for Success.

We love this logo! It captures our renewed purpose to build a more successful future for children from marginalised communities.

The ACFS dates back to 1945, when the late Bishop Trevor Huddleston started soup kitchens in Alexander and Soweto. To this day, nutrition remains a core focus area – delivered through beloved programmes like peanut butter sandwiches, food parcels and vegetable production.

Yet we must do more to prepare children for success. That’s why we’ve expanded into a variety of child-centred stimulation and educational support programmes, such as the Teenage Girls Programme, toy libraries and the Computer Skills Programme.

The computer programme is already equipping 220 children in Meadowlands and Pimville with skills for a modern era. We are grateful to Vodacom and Liquid Telecom for kitting out these computer labs, and to Education City for sponsoring the software.

When visionaries work together like this, we can build within children a desire to become their best selves; and propel them towards a more promising future.

And that’s the message our logo delivers! Please visit us on social media and tell us what you think.
