This was a very special day in Ace Africa’s history and we would like to thank the Stars Foundation for making this possible and also to every singly supporter who has allowed Ace to reach this momentous milestone.

“We are thrilled that the Stars Foundation have decided to endorse Ace Africa’s work in Tanzania, particularly since Ace Africa Kenya was also a recipient of the Stars Impact award in 2010.Following an extensive due diligence process, we feel very proud of this achievement after just six years of implementing our programme in Tanzania. This is a huge endorsement of our work, impact and proof of concept.” Joe Waddington
