Economically Empowering IDPs: Women

We are not only giving them fish, we are actually teaching them to fish! We trained some of the women at one of the Internally Displaced Camps we work with to make arts and crafts which they sold at our fundraising event last October, which raised money for themselves and their families. They were very excited to receive their earnings- this falls under our second focus which is economic empowerment.

There will be a 5 Day Sales Exhibition in February which will include possible earning streams for men too. Follow us on our social media handles for more information: @acecharity on Twitter and Instagram.

At ACE Charity, we have a culture that ensures all our goals are achievable, measurable and sustainable- this is exactly the same for our 2016 goals. We promise to always keep you informed.

Thank you for all your support as we continue to redefine what charity means in Africa, starting with Nigeria.

New Libraries In Abuja & Kano!

 

We bought generators to power the computers and bought books that are relevant to the curriculum used by the school. We also employed a fully qualified librarian to manage and facilitate learning in the library.

Abuja, December, 2015

 

 

Now pupils of Mariri Orphanage Primary School, Kano (December, 2015) and LEA Primary School, Abuja will now learn to read with understanding, speak better and leave primary school computer literate! We are going to improve the quality of the education in Africa starting with one library per public school at a time in Nigeria.

Our December 2015 Christmas Gifted Shoebox Was A Success!

It was Christmas like no other for the pupils of City Gate Primary School Durumi, Abuja. They were the benefactors of our yearly Christmas gifted shoebox giveaway. A big thank you to the children of Cyril Jackson Primary School, U.K for donating majority of the gifts and to our children; and to our partner Arik Air for transporting over 100 shoeboxes from the U.K free of charge! Yes, we did not pay for any excess luggages- thank you Arik!

We Do Not Just Teach Our IDP’s, We Feed Them Too.

This is how they used to eat before we started working with them VS how they eat now.

The Children at our ACE Charity IDP School now get two meals a day! Thanks to our ambassador Zahra Buhari whose family donated almost a warehouse load of food to ACE Charity. They now get fed Breakfast and lunch daily! Feeding the children before classes start and after school closes is also a great way to keep them in School. Thank you to our most faithful partner the Transcorp Hilton who now (since October 2015) provide pre-packed lunch daily for our children.

Just look at the priceless smiles on their faces.

Thank You For Helping Us Raise N12, 815,837.50

We are indeed grateful for the enthusiastic support and funds already received for all our ongoing projects (please visit our website for more information on our projects). Because of you, we are able to assist, care and empower more African lives!

ACE Charity Is Building A Temporary IDP Camp

ACE IDP Camp

This is what our temporary IDP camp made out of old containers will look like. Each container will be insulated for the 250 families who will be temporarily housed. It will cost us N64,000 to insulate each container. There is so much to do, but we cannot do this without your support, please donate today.

If you are interested in finding out more about our camp or would like to donate towards this project, please visit our website: www.aceafricacharity.org or call +2348096555710 for more information.  Thank you.

New Beginnings, New Office!

We have a new address! Our previous gracious landlord who gave ACE Charity a free office for the last two years is expanding her business. Fortunately for us, we have been donated a new office in Maitama, Abuja. No rent, no utilities. We are extremely grateful to our new donor. Thank you Sterling Partnerships for your huge contribution to ACE Charity!
