About Project A.C.E

Project A.C.E (Access, Community Development, Education) is an iterative 3-part project that aims to attain economic equality for disadvantaged Nigerian youths, and equip them to become social change agents.

Through primary research, our team has identified a lack of ambition and purpose among disadvantaged youths in Makoko, Lagos, thus making them more susceptible to crime and other endangering lifestyles, and victims of the poverty cycle.

To tackle this, our beneficiaries go through a series of intensive personalised programs that mentally reorient them, equip them with the education and career knowledge they need to thrive, and opportunities to lead transformation in their communities.
