ABOUT

ACFOLA, through the LCF Community Vitality fund is promoting community based-income generating activities in London and area. The project aims at lowering the gap between the rich and the poor by creating self-employment opportunities. The underlying principle for the project is that business strength lodges in greater numbers of shareholders when trust is nurtured and financial resources pooled for a common goal. The project has planned to improve the capacity of beneficiaries to actively participate in multi-stake sustainable economic activities.
