ACCA was founded by Jane Oliphant and a group of volunteers back in the year 2000.

Current President, Wanda Crawford joined ACCA in 2000 as a volunteer, she soon found that there was so much poverty in the Algarve. She now shares a long and vibrant history of helping children at and below the poverty line along with an amazing ACCA team.

On the board of ACCA we have Anna Bialek, Jenny Harrison, Margaret Garnett, Sharon Henderson, Maxine Binns and Phillipa Clancey. This team of dynamic ladies are devoted to making a difference in the lives of the needy children in the Algarve.

We have several loyal corporate sponsors including Conrad Algarve, QP Savills, Jutta Hoehn Architect, Blevins Franks, Atelier do Sul, Resident, Pinheiros Altos, Quinta do Lago Resort & the Ladies Golf Club, Vila Sol, Laranjal Golf, Algarve Tennis Centre, Four Seasons Country Club, Curiosa Living, Seven Quintas, Vila Joya, Fine Wines, James & Tor Healey, John Waddenton, Irvine’s, Dunas Douradas Beach Club and Dunas Lifestyle.

In addition, to the companies that support ACCAKIDS they have the local community at large. There are so many individuals who always lend a helping hand to help ACCA serve the community. It is impossible to name them all. However, you know who you are and we would like to thank all of the ACCA supporters.

Without the support of the all the volunteers and donors ACCA could not do the desperately needed work we are able to contribute to the community.

Wanda says “in our charity we dream of a world where every child has a voice and the ability to achieve their fullest potential”.

Wanda, say’s “we are touching and changing the lives of ACCAKIDS one child at a time. We are looking for more volunteers and donations. Since the pandemic we have been inundated with requests for support.

If you would like to volunteer, please email ACCA or call 919 617 995.
