ACN FOOD PANTRY

Together, let's feed D-Bronx!



ACN Food Pantry is partnering with New York Food Bank Organizations to serve and distribute fresh nutritious foods to residents in Low-income communities in The Bronx.    
More than a quarter-million people in the South Bronx are living in poverty, making Rep. Jose Serrano’s 16th Congressional District the poorest in the nation, according to the U.S census Bureau. The South Bronx had 256,544, or 38%, of its residents living below the poverty line, the new county-by-county Census stats show.

ACN  Educational Project Africa​​

The passion behind the organization's desire to help Africa is to make a better platform for the future residents of the continent and by noting that the children of today will be the future citizens of African countries. 
Starting at the grassroots level would make this a reality in the future but also engaging older Africans to create a spirit of togetherness in the continent. There are millions of  deprived children out there in remote villages waiting for our help, they are pleading for equal opportunities as children in the developed world who have access to better education and learning materials. It's the objective of Africa Compassion network(ACN) to reach out to these poor needy children and restore their hope of a brighter Future by Donating Books, learning materials, building of computer labs, Libraries, renovation of school blocks, provide clean borehole water for schools and Educational scholarships for some well academically performing students.

Facts on Education in Africa
In recent research for AIA by Alyssa,  found some really powerful statistics about Africa, and it seems to mean that it all leads back to primary education. That’s why ACN believes in our cause so much- because education is the key to help reduce poverty and empower the next generation of African leaders.
• Sub-Saharan Africa is the only region in the world where poverty has increased in the past 25 years.
• 32 of the world’s 38 heavily indebted poor countries are in Africa.
• Half the population of Africa lives on less than US $1 a day.
• Slums are home to 72% of urban Africa’s citizens.
• Primary school enrollment in African countries is among the lowest in the world.
• 33 million primary school-aged children in Sub-Saharan Africa do not go to school. 18 million of these children are girls.
• In Sub-Saharan Africa, only two-thirds of children who start primary school reach the final grade.
• Although literacy rates have greatly improved in Africa over the last few decades, approximately 40% of Africans over the age of 15, and 50% of women above the age of 25 are illiterate.
• There is an average of 40 pupils per teacher in sub-Saharan Africa, but the situation varies considerably from country to country. In many countries, it is more than 60 to one.

• Africa loses an estimated 20,000 skilled personnel a year to developed countries.
• Average life expectancy in Africa is only 46 years.
• There are an estimated 5,500 AIDS deaths a day in Africa.
• AIDS decreases in villages where there are primary schools.
• In Uganda, a child who quits attending school is three times more likely to be HIV positive later on in life than a child who completes basic education.
• HIV/AIDS is likely to claim the lives of 10% of teachers within the coming five years, and 20% of school-age children will be AIDS orphans.
Upon the subject of education,
not presuming to dictate any plan or system respecting it,
I can only say that I view it as the most important subject
which we as a people may be engaged in..
