What you can do 2021
COVID-19 made a bad situation worse for vulnerable Kenyans and Tanzanians. Communities, local government and schools are asking Ace Africa to help. These are their five, urgent priorities.
I. Open 70 new Ace school clubs to improve life chances for 3,500 school children
Our Ace school clubs teach children about health, nutrition, rights and life skills. The clubs help stop child abuse, improve diets and transform self-confidence.
II. Train 4,950 farmers to adapt to climate change
Help 1,350 Kenyan farmers to establish model farms and teach another 3,600 farmers to adapt to new weather patterns caused by climate change.
III. Boost hygiene and nutrition in 60 schools
Poor sanitation and inadequate diets are common in schools in Western Kenya. This can stop children receiving an education.
IV. Protect at least 3000 women and children from sexual abuse and violence
Increased child protection services will reduce sexual abuse and violence in rural Tanzania. We will establish four volunteer-led community child protection committees, supporting at least 3,000 women and children.
V. Transform the lives of 400 at-risk children through the power of sport
In many remote rural Tanzanian schools early marriage, teenage pregnancy and child labour are common. Academic performance is poor. There are no sports prorgammes. In 2014, the Ace Africa Football League was set up to address these issues.
