Bringing Our Community Together
Through ACC, the Cameroonian community has received positive news coverage in local and international media, reflecting their contributions to the American society.
In 2022 the organization formed an official relationship with Colorado-based Clinical Trust Solutions that developed into a partnership with the University of Colorado Medical School(UC Health). The purpose is to further research on stroke prevention in the African-American community. This partnership is in the development stages.
Through its activities, reach, and community work, the organization has engaged with local community leaders, including Denver Mayor, Michael Hancock, and other educational, business, and community leaders in the city of Aurora,
Over the years the organization has given out scholarships to its own members to aid their educational success in the USA and beyond. This activity takes place mainly during the back-to-school period in America. ACC members have contributed school materials for their own, and the community totaling more than $5,000.
The impact of ACC’s work does not end in the Denver area.
Since its founding, the organization has worked with educational institutions outside the US to fund students’ activities, including sporting activities at Baptish High School (BHS) in Buea, Cameroon. In 2019 the organization donated funds and purchased trophies for the winning teams at BHS Buea, Cameroon. The supplies cost an estimated $500, according to Samuel Effange, an alumnus of BHS and a member of the ACC executive team.
The organization has spearheaded efforts that led to the procurement, supply, and provision of medical supplies and equipment beyond the United States, including the Cameroonian homeland.
ACC assistance has been mainly used to aid communities impacted by the Cameroonian civil war that started in 2016. In 2018 the organization partnered with Denver-based Project CURE, and humanitarian, and the founder of Liberty Day Institute, Andy McKean, to ship a container of medical supplies worth an estimated $20,000.
ACC events have brought medical, educational, and political leaders into the community for exchanges with ramifications that ring into the future.
