After a lot of hard work from our dedicated staff and generous support, ACODO really has made substantial progress towards helping the lives of some of the worlds most underprivileged individuals. Despite this success, ACODO is planning a number of future projects.
I. ACODO Children Village
ACODO Orphanage is now situated on rented land. The leasing contract is going to expire in April 2018. We would like to find a permanent home for the children on our own land. The current location is the second address of ACODO - we moved here in 2009 after staying one year in another place in 2008. The orphanage facilities such as children dormitories, classroom, dance show stage, etc. were built of timber. These buildings can be moved to the new place and rebuilt. Read more...

Orphanage care should be a last resort and a temporary solution. Read more...
