Anglican Communion Fund - where the money goes

Here are some of the projects that have been supported by the Anglican Communion Fund: 

The Refresh Programme - Japan

The Refresh programme in Japan provides day trips for kindergarten age children who are growing up in areas still heavily contaminated from the 2011 Fukushima disaster.  A £5000 grant from the ACF has allowed the organisation to provide trips during the year to an uncontaminated area of the country allowing over 160 children and parents to play freely outside without fear of radiation.  It is proven that even a short time in an area with no radiation helps to reduce the accumulation of substances in the body, so as well as being a time of fun and freedom for these children and adults, it is also a time of healing.

 

The Awerial Training Centre - South Sudan

The Awerial Agricultural Training Centre in South Sudan was set up by Archbishop Daniel Deng Bul.  Established with a grant of £20,000 the centre has had its first graduates from their training scheme for pastors, women’s and youth leaders.  Set up to address the long-term needs of the displaced communities fleeing to Awerial County following the escalation of violence and human rights abuses at the end of 2013, the Training Centre gives people both agricultural and business skills. The graduates leave able to grow their own crops and design a business plan, ensuring long term food security and income. They will then train their communities, helping to reduce the risk of famine and to stabilize the area, creating community and encouraging peace.

 

The Pure Water Factory – Nigeria

The Diocese of Kebbi in the North West of Nigeria has been badly affected by the presence and activity of Boko Haram.  Many Christians from this area who have been financial supporters of the Diocese have relocated due to the insurgence, leaving the Diocese without sufficient income to support its work.

The Church of Nigeria was awarded a grant at the end of 2016 to build a pure water factory in Bernin, Kebbi.  The factory will produce clean water for the area and the income generated from this, will fund the important ongoing work of the Diocese.

Supporting this project will benefit the community with safe, clean water, removing the risk of water-borne diseases and will enable the Diocese to be self-funding in the future.
