African Team Ministries was founded in 1984 as an intermediary ministry between African and American churches to provide funds for orphan and refugee relief, missions and evangelism in East Africa. The group currently has children registered for sponsorship in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Rwanda. Each year at the holidays, St. Aidan’s sponsors a sale of jewelry, carved items and other gifts handmade by the women in Africa. Proceeds from the sale are sent to provide school fees, tuition, books, and uniforms, ensuring that the children receive education and a measure of stability needed to rebuild their minds.
