African Child Outreach

Bringing Hope to Abandoned Children;

Providing Shelter, Food, Education

African Child Outreach is a non-profit organization, founded by good friends Connie Ruth Christiansen and Terri Fletcher, after their trip to Kitalie, Kenya, Africa, where they met and worked with several pastors and their beautiful orphaned, adopted children; and where they witnessed firsthand the heart-wrenching sight of too many abandoned children, who are living alone, on the dangerous poverty stricken streets.


There are more than 30 million homeless street children in Africa! More than 250,000 in Kenya! These children seem destined to a life of hopelessness, except for the compassionate hearts of men and women who are making a difference.


The purpose of African Child Outreach is to raise funds to aid these wonderful people who are bringing hope to the hopeless by offering  shelter, food, clothing and education to the precious children of two orphanages: Blessings Hope Center and Royal Kids Orphans.

Connie traveled to Africa in 2015, to speak at a conference, which was held at Blessings Hope Center in Kenya.


It was during this conference that Connie met and fell in love with the many children represented on this site; and where she encountered the heartbreaking plight of the many more children on the streets of Kenya who are desperate for someone to help them.


And she was determined to find a way to help the compassionate pastors who would willingly take more children in; if only there was more money, if only there was more food.

Invite Connie to come tell your group more about African Child Outreach, 

Terri Fletcher, MS, Ed.,S. is a retired school counselor who spent more than 35 years working with children of the U.S. public school system.s She traveled with Connie to Africa in 2015. 


In preparation for the trip, Terri worked tirelessly to motivate and organize funds, to buy new clothing and school supplies for the orphans of Blessings Hope Center; and to enhance their small medical clinic.


After returning home to the U.S., Terri wanted to find a way to continue providing for the desperate needs of the many children that are now a part of her heart.


Connie and Terri invite you to be a part of their wonderful, ongoing effort;
