African Hearts Community Organization (AfriHCO) is a community-based Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) in Uganda. AfriHCO was started in 2001 with the aim of working with orphaned and vulnerable young people to improve their safety and physical, spiritual and emotional health and future well-being.

The organization's target population is children who are living on the street, many of whom have been orphaned by HIV or abandoned or victimized by family violence. The organization currently operates two homes housing former street children in Ssenge. Children living in these homes are taught the Bible and are provided with shelter, food, love and education.

In addition, the organization assists other vulnerable children in the Ssenge community through the African Hearts Junior School as well as providing counseling, health care and scholarships to support their education. AfriHCO's outreach activities maintain contact with the many children still living on the street, and provide basic elements of care for them through the slum ministry.

African Hearts Community Organizations' biggest challenge is limited
    financial resources for ongoing ministries.
  • School fees for all the children in AfriHCO's care
  • Monthly support for the two children's homes
  • Support for Kisenyi slum ministry
  • Support for the AfriHCO staff
  • Funds to furnish the African Hearts Junior School and teacher salaries
  • Obtaining brass band instruments to expand the Royalle Brass Band
  • Need for water well at the Ssenge Home
  • Medical care for children in the homes and in AfriHCO's care
