TACT’s Primary Objectives Are

To work with young people in the UK are not in education, employment, or training (NEET), by providing professional and personal development programmes to prepare them for the world of work.

To work in collaboration with other organisations, whose purposes are similarly aligned.

To provide personal interventions with young adults, including grants, to provide them with the knowledge, skills and tools to make a successful transition.

To provide donations to selective partner charitable organisations working in Nigeria.

For detailed information on TACT, including instructions on how to apply for a grant, or to make a charitable donation, please get in touch (tact@akabusi.com). Please view below some TACT projects. Thank you for your support!

Inspired by the inspirational and life-changing role Sergeant Mackenzie played in Kriss’ life, Project Mackenzie strives to change the lives of young people in the UK who are struggling to find employment.

Follow-up support and guidance from Aragon’s Youth Officer

Participants are also offered an opportunity to apply for an apprenticeship placement where they can go on to train with Aragon and gain further qualifications. With TACT’s support, young men and women can learn tangible skills and develop the motivation to enhance their employability. Testimonial:  “Kriss and his team were great; I looked forward to it every week. Kriss and his team taught me valuable interview skills and gave me so much confidence. I love my job and know that without this project, I would never have got it. If any other young people are considering it, I’d say 100%  do it! Even if you have children it shouldn’t stop you. It’s a really good motivator and it taught me so much. I’m so happy I got my life back!” - Rachel Steff

The Akabusi Charitable Trust - Nigeria Working in partnership with Amaudo UK, TACT helped create affordable, accessible and sustainable solutions for people experiencing mental health problems or learning disabilities in Nigeria. This work played out in the face of a harrowing backdrop: Nigeria’s abandonment of those who are mentally ill, forcing them to roam the streets without shelter, food, clothing and care, and exposing them to all forms of danger, human rights abuses, and torture
