About ACCES

The African Canadian Continuing Education Society (ACCES) is a non-profit agency that supports Kenyan students by providing post-secondary scholarships. ACCES is a duly incorporated and registered charity with Head Office in Surrey, British Columbia, Canada.

ACCES was founded in 1993 by Beth & George Scott as an organization dedicated to education. By 1998, a group of ACCES scholarship graduates initiated a literacy program in poor rural communities that had no schools, called LIFA (Literacy For All). After several government grants to build brick and mortar schools, they have since been handed over to the public school system, and are thriving, in communities that are also thriving as a result of the community development programs that were part of the government grant projects.

Today, there are more than 3,000 Kenyans that have graduated with an ACCES scholarship, an alumni association with an endowment fund sponsoring students on its own, and an award-winning Kenyan organization that has empowered 14 communities to become self-sufficient.
