ACC was founded in 2008 in Tanzania as Tanzanian-Dutch cooperation with the aim to support orphans and people living with HIV in Tanzania and to inform about HIV prevention. In the meantime, the NGO supports mainly rural initiatives that want to change something for the better in their environment, in the areas of health, education, economic empowerment, and social security. In the future, environmental projects will also be established.
ACC has been accompanying the 16 annual German volunteers in Tanzania and the two Tanzanian volunteers in Hamburg, among others, since 2020 together with the German-Tanzanian Partnership. ACC is the main partner of the DTP. They exchange ideas intensively and develop the programs further.
