What we do

ACF is at the forefront of social innovation and change — transforming the way we address social and economic inequality, financial exclusion, poverty and women empowerment. To do this, we rely on the kind donations of our benefactors.

Whether you’re an individual, philanthropists, public/private and corporate institution, trust or foundation, we provide a secure platform for donations big or small. These donations enable us to empower individuals without hurting their self-esteem and ultimately, transform the beneficiaries of today into the benefactors of tomorrow.

Through the ACF Entrepreneurship Programme, we educate, train, and mentor aspiring entrepreneurs providing interest free finance to support the launch of micro, small, and medium sized enterprises.

Our Youth Enterprise Programme encourages talented young people to realise their potential and turn their business ideas into reality. ACF focuses to financially empower young people from marginalised communities.

Through our collaborative and community focused programmes, we seek to understand the issues and barriers facing our communities. Our innovative approach to community development is unique. We understand that everyone’s journey to economic empowerment and prosperity is different and that they need tailored made solutions to overcome specific challenges. We provide the support, tools, and inspiration they need to find a way through that works for them.

Through strategic collaborative partnerships with leading academics, experts, institutions and organisations, we seek to develop a better understanding of the financial needs and experiences of those going through economic hardships at grassroots level and provide them with tailor made solutions.

We need your help

In order to help individuals from marginalised communities embark on a journey of self-employment and improve their quality of life, we need your help. Your kind donation will allow people to financially empower themselves and enable them to support others in the future.

That’s what makes ACF so unique. Your donation will go a long way — continuously recycling itself in a community of people who feel empowered to support themselves, create jobs, and bring about positive change.

We rely on the kindness and generosity to change our communities. To become a benefactor and donate today, please follow the link below.
