About ACACIA UK (Action for Children and Communities in Africa)

ACACIA UK (Action for Children and Communities in Africa) works to transform the lives of children affected by extreme poverty, hunger, illness, persecution, abuse, & neglect. Our projects focus on helping some of the most vulnerable children & young people in Thika District, Kenya. The children & families we work with come from backgrounds of abject poverty, family breakdown, abandonment, & abuse. They are often forced to live on the streets, working & begging, in conflict with local residents & the police. Many resort to substance abuse as a means of escaping cold & hunger. We believe that these children have the capacity & desire to transform their lives, & AFCIC operates several programmes designed to help them do so: *Outreach Programmes for Vulnerable Children prevent children from ever going to the street & rehabilitate those who are already there. Some projects include school drop out prevention, child sponsorship, microfinance & business assistance, outreach clinics for street children, & after school children’s clubs. *A residential Interim Care Centre for street children, carrying out non-formal education, rehabilitation, counselling & family reintegration work. *Kenyan Children’s Legal Aid Work provides free legal advice to children & their guardians. *School Feeding programmes feed 1500 vulnerable children daily. *Holiday clubs Keep 800 vulnerable children away from abuse/exploitation on the streets by providing food & activities during school holidays.

"There's quite a few sites similar to easyfundraising. But where this site stands out is it's helpful & quick replies to queries. It is so easy to set up an account & to start saving for a good cause - I've recommended easyfundraising to a lot of my friends, and they're as impressed as I am with the ease of how it works."

"I run a not for profit Community Interest Company and shared our cause. Very easy to use, templates ready to share on social media, with direct links to our page and pop up reminders installed for when I was shopping with numerous websites, where I could gain the free donation. Excellent service and a fabulous idea."
