Rainfall Capturing Systems in Rural Kenya
Allowing year round personal water self sufficiency.

"I noticed on one of my trips to Africa that there were a lot of people  in the rural tribes with scarred shins. When I inquired I was told it was from pushing wheelbarrows loaded with water. In areas located away from natural water sources and public water utilities the people, including children and the elderly are forced to retrieve their personal water for each day. Sometimes it can be 5-10 miles away. Since the rainy season provides enough water to last year round if it can be collected and stored, ACI funded the purchase and installation of several rainwater systems for several of the most isolated rural tribes in Kenya. They each consist of a rooftop capturing membrane, a 1000 gallon tank, and a cement foundation."

Workers Rights Laws in East Africa
are not being enforced by East African governments

There is one way to persuade East African governments to start enforcing the international labor laws that they have adopted. The United States holds that power by being able to leverage their bargaining power when negotiating trade agreements with those countries. Fees and tariffs charged by the U.S. are supposed to be attached to each country's human rights report card. The problem is that the U.S. is not enforcing the provisions of those agreements. Everyday workers in Africa are being subject to abuse and enslavement by greedy employers. The existing suffering is not only felt by those employed, but the forced double shifts by employers drives unemployment to disastrous levels as those illegal shifts would otherwise double the workforce size of those countries. We are working to get the U.S. government to do more than pay lip service to humanitarian causes in Africa and abide by their own stipulated agreements.

Sex for Grades 
is a major issue terrorizing sub-Saharan female students 

We are establishing a centralized means for students to report abusive teachers who then become target of our own investigation. We push authorities to enforce the law and punish violators who abuse girls and young women while holding a position of public trust.
