Ten years ago, Alice was selected to join The African Children’s Choir program touring the world gaining confidence and a new perspective on life. Part two of the program had her return home to be educated to University level in her chosen career. She has been carefully mentored and supported by ACC to fully realize her potential in accounting, her field of study as a future leader in Uganda.
Alice came from desperate circumstances. To be selected by ACC was a dream come true for her and the remainder of her family.  
She has just graduated university with fantastic results and with your help we would like to offer her the opportunity of a lifetime: a chance to work in a reputable Australian business as an intern for a period of three months.
