1Afemai Children’s Trust (ACT) is a registered charity that works with children in the Afemai area of Edo State, Nigeria, and children living in Yorkshire, United Kingdom.

Our goal is to give children the opportunity to better themselves, their families and their communities. Every child has enormous potential to do great things. Their minds are the key to a brighter future for themselves and for everyone around them. Afemai Children’s Trust are passionate, committed and determined to make a “real” difference to the children of Afemai and Yorkshire.

Through our workshops and events, we are broadening the minds of Yorkshire’s children, and making a real difference in their lives. Whether it be through cooking, art or dance for example, we are introducing them to other cultures and a world of possibilities.

We also aim to make a difference in Nigeria by helping to build schools and community centres for children there. If we can empower them with the right tools – education, training and self-belief – then they can make real changes to their future and the future of their communities.

ACT is still relatively young, founded in 2009, but we have big dreams, big hearts and a huge motivation to make sure we deliver on stimulating and educating the minds of tomorrow.

If you are a school or business and would like to be involved in Afemai Children’s Trust, we would love to hear from you.
