Ace Africa is a leading community development organization established in 2003. Today, Ace Africa has registered charitable status in Kenya and Tanzania, as well as the UK and US (for fundraising purposes), employs 56 local Africans in Africa, works with over 4,000 community volunteers and has already supported over 765,000 children and their families, shifting them out of poverty and hunger into food and economic security, self-sufficiency and a better, healthier life. Ace has adopted a long-term (10-15) year approach towards community development, investing the time and resources to enable a community to become self-sufficient. Ace's three core programming areas focus on i) Community Livelihoods, ii) Community Health and Wellbeing and iii) Child Development. Ace Africa works collaboratively with the community, government and local partners to provide targeted, relevant and appropriate skills, training and services in the specific context of each community where we work, avoiding duplication and ensuring effective use of all resources. Ace Africa has now evolved into one of the most highly regarded community development organizations in Western Kenya and Northern Tanzania, having received several awards in the international development sector.
