Dear ACE Projects family,
Below is our 2021 half-year report highlighting key milestones during the first half of the year.
Whilst COVID-19 has undoubtedly made our lives more complicated in Brazil, we are very proud of the impact that continues to come out of our six impact spaces and 16 local leaders.
We also have some exciting news to share with you, but more on this in the last few pages of the report.
We are incredibly grateful for all your support and honoured to be working with a great collective of on the ground leaders and international partners. Your continued belief in our impact and leaders has led us to be in a position where we can start to realise the initial ambition Dylan and I set out for the charity back in 2019.
All the very best for the next half of this year, and if you have any questions, we would be delighted to hear from you.
