The mission of the Association for Community Empowerment Solutions (ACESWorld) is to accelerate an end to global poverty by removing the impediments to quality education to create a world of shared prosperity.
We approach every problem by first listening, searching for understanding, and developing a feeling for what it’s like to walk in a person’s shoes.
Education is a powerful instrument for reducing poverty and improving health, gender equality, peace, and stability. Nevertheless, 260 million children are still out of primary and secondary school.
Empower for Change
Girls with little or no education are far more likely to be married as children, suffer domestic violence, live in poverty, and lack a say over household spending or their own health care than their better-educated peers, which harms them, their children, and communities.
