Reflecting on the impact ACEF has made at Brainhouse Academy over a decade, you will realise this African proverb is apt – ‘if you think you’re too small to make a difference, you haven’t spent the night with a mosquito!’.

ACEF is tiny like a mosquito – a small, but passionate charity which is striving continuously to make a difference to the vulnerable young people who live and go to school at Brainhouse Academy. The impact has been immense – please read more from the recent ACEF Newsletter about the:

  • Green Toilets
  • Menstrual care programme
  • Upcycling of clothing

As well as understanding more about our core objectives to ensure:

  • Child and adults in the school have access to warm, nourishing meals enabling them to concentrate on their learning.
  • Every child can drink safe clean drinking water
  • There is a constantly improving learning environment including the fully functioning library, access to text books, reconditioned laptops, sports equipment.
  • Enhancement of vocational and life skills of teachers and senior students.

None of this could be achievable without incredible support from individuals, schools, organisations and volunteers.  Without all of your support, ACEF could not provide the basics nor consider some of the ambitious and innovative initiatives undertaken over recent years.

So you can see the little ACEF mosquito is absolutely buzzing and being felt by all, both in Kenya and in England.

Finally we are delighted to be able to report that less than 5% of charitable income is used to support our fundraising efforts in the UK. We work hard to ensure that as near as possible every penny raised is used to support the young people who attend Brainhouse Academy.

If you are interested in working with us or knowing more, please do just drop us an email and I would be delighted to make contact with you.
