Following extensive baseline research conducted by Joanna Waddington MBE, Ace Africa was established by British born Joanna and Kenyans Augustine Wasonga and Anthony Okoti. ​Ace's mission is to empower children and their communities to improve and sustain their own health, wellbeing and development. ​Ace Africa focuses its work across 10 project sites in rual Kenya and Tanzania and in most areas where Ace works:

  • ​Many adults are showing signs and symptoms of HIV and AIDS
  • Many children are orphaned or vulnerable
  • A large percentage of the population lives on less than US$ 1.90 a day
  • Children and adults lack access to medication, nutritious food, education, counselling, shelter, clothing and are unable to meet their overall basic needs.

The Ace Africa programme is a long-term approach towards community development and involves the commitment of children, their families, the community and the government. Ace addresses all aspects of development with the view that within 10-15 years children and the community will become self-sufficient and self-sustaining through improved food and economic security, health, wellbeing and rights awareness.

Today, 14 years on, Ace Africa continues to go from strength to strength and is now regarded as a leading and award-wining organisation. Through our 77 indigenous staff in Africa, engaging over 9,500 community volunteers, we have helped over 1 million children and their communities.
