The ACDF journey began on October 10th, 1982, but by 1987, ACDF had opened its first training center at 4-8 Arcola Street, funded by the London Borough of Hackney Council and specifically adapted for the varied and innovative work programmes the leadership of the foundation had earlier identified. In the early years, from 1983 to 1986, ACDF partnered with several notable government training providers like the Manpower Service Commission and Reed Employment Services to assist in stemming the rapid growth of unemployment, especially in the UK BAME community. In response, ACDF provided a 6- to-8-week work placement training programme for young people on benefits aged 16 to 21 to get them ready for part-time or full-time employment opportunities. Set up a weekly free legal and general advice service with a specific emphasis on immigration headed by a very notable lawyer from Ghana. It was during this period that the leadership of ACDF began looking at international youth exchange programmes as an invaluable tool for youth development and building relationships across several continents. As a result, ACDF’s first self-funded youth exchange became a reality with an Antillean youth organization called Kibra Hacha based in Utrecht, Holland. During the group's visit to the UK in 1987, ACDF’s training center at Arcola Street, Hackney, was formerly opened by Cllr. Jim Holland, the then Mayor of the London Borough of Hackney. Then came a series of youth exchange programmes to St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Ghana, then across Europe and everywhere else. So, as ACDF celebrates as well as commemorates 40 years of service to the betterment of humanity, ACDF is keyed into pole position in the UK and now in Ghana with new and renewed energies to face the challenges of another 40 years of changing lives for better alternatives. Thanks to everyone, past and present who have trusted ACDF, but moreover, for your participation and the Almighty’s guidance in establishing an indelible legacy!
