The African Community has been helping me with English and my homework too. At the first time I get here at ACE, I didn’t speak English. A few days later, I heard that there is a program that helps a refugee kids do they work, help them learn English and make they dream come true. I stared coming every Saturday and I actually made a lot of friends I never had before. ACE has been helping me with my homework since 7th grader and now I am in 11 grades and I am so happy. I want to help kids that don’t speak English and help them explain words they don’t understand.
Thank you, I couldn’t done all the staff with out ACE
