What people say about us
“The team are really friendly and make you feel welcome. I have already learnt several new skills and feel more confident. It is a special organisation and I am proud to assist in their efforts to improve the health and livelihoods of women and children in Africa.”
Nath
Intern
“Act4Africa is such a fantastic organisation that does so much to help so many people. Working with a team dedicated to fighting HIV/Aids and improving the health and livelihoods of women and girls in some of Africa’s poorest communities was an eye-opener and an invaluable experience. It showed me just how much good can be done by a relatively small charity.”
