Ace Africa works with over 150 local and international partners including NGOs, CBO’s, local government and partners.

Sharing the Ace Approach with other organisations

A core objective of Ace’s work is to share our approach with other organisations, from local community based organisations to international NGOs. We work with these organisations to help build capacity and share knowledge.

Over the past 13 years, our training and capacity building has extended to other countries in sub Saharan Africa, including Uganda, Ethiopia and South Sudan, in addition to other regions in Kenya and Tanzania. We share skills in our programme interventions, governance and monitoring and evaluation.

If you are interested to find out more about training from the Ace Africa team in parts or our full programme, please do get in touch with some more information. We have developed comprehensive training manuals in each aspect of our programmes to be shared with other local and international organisations working in child and community development.

Working in close collaboration with local Partners in our communities

Working in close collaboration is critical to the success of Ace. Over the past 11 years we have significantly increased the number of our local and international partners. Working together ensures services can be provided, and duplication is avoided. We work with a number of government ministries including: Health, Education, Agriculture, Gender, Children and Social Services, Youth Affairs, Justice, Livestock, Fisheries, Environment, Internal Security and Special projects in Kenya and Tanzania.

Got Matar

Got Matar Community Development Group
In early 2014, Ace entered into an exciting new strategic partnership with the Got Matar Community Development Group (GMCDG). Operating in Got Matar, Western Kenya the GMCDG shares many of the same objectives with Ace, making this relationship equally beneficial to both partners. Like Ace, the GMCDG focuses on issues relating to community health and development and lends support to OVC and vulnerable households with an emphasis on the community-wide effects of HIV/AIDS. These common areas of interest provide important opportunities for collaboration between the two organisations and present prospects to improve the effectiveness and reach of our programmes.

Under the partnership agreement, Ace Kenya provides technical support and advice to the GMCDG relating to joint projects while representatives from GMCDG and Ace Kenya sit on the boards of both organisations. The Got Matar Institute of Technology is one such joint enterprise, which is an important feature of GMCDG’s and Ace Kenya’s involvement in the area. The GMCDG’s community ties combined with Ace technical expertise has resulted in a partnership that furthers the goals of both organisations and therefore is able to have a greater positive impact in the community.
