DescriptionAce Africa is a leading community development organization established in 2003. Today, Ace Africa has registered charitable status in Kenya and Tanzania, as well as the UK and US, employs 56 local Africans in Africa, works with over 4,000 community volunteers and has already supported over 765,000 children and their families, shifting them out of poverty and hunger into food and economic security, self-sufficiency and a better, healthier life.
Recognizing the opportunities provided by the rapid adoption of low-cost smartphones and tablets in Africa, Ace Africa is currently in the process of developing Android-based apps across all its program areas (1. Community Livelihoods, 2. Community Health and Wellbeing and 3. Child Development) with the aim to increase the efficiency, depth and reach of our community development programs. As part of this, Ace Africa seeks to engage interns that can assist in the development of content for the Android apps, utilizing existing Ace Africa materials, as well as through conducting internet research.
