Africa Community Exchange (ACE) began with a group of concerned, former Liberian residents now living in the United States who wanted to make a contribution to their country. Liberia had experienced 14 years of civil war and an Ebola crisis that have resulted in human despair. The group decided to create a non-profit organization that would serve as a bridge to connect Liberia education and health entities to resources that would help build capacity and improve quality of service. ACE is incorporated and qualified as a charitable organization, making gifts to it tax-deductible.
