What we do

We help vulnerable children gain the education that is their basic human right.

We help vulnerable children gain the education that is their basic human right.

ACACIA UK’s vision is that every child in Africa enjoys a high quality education that embraces their differing abilities. This is achieved by lifting barriers to education for girls and boys in East Africa to enable them to reach their full potential.

Through targeted small scale grant making ACACIA UK supports projects in Sub-Saharan Africa that reach out to children and young people who have been left without an education. In particular ACACIA UK supports children excluded from education owing to developmental disability or mental health issues. We  work in collaboration with children, their families and their local communities to achieve a positive and lasting impact.
