Welcome to African Community Health Institute (ACHI)

As a nonprofit organization, ACHI is established with the mission and vision to create a social, cultural, and physical environment that promotes health and eliminates health disparities. ACHI's primary goal is to address the unmet social, emotional, and physical health needs of vulnerable African Immigrants and Refugee communities. ACHI embodies a philosophy of community-building across cultures to build both individual and group identity. ACHI strives to address issues of community health as well as physical and mental health. As a volunteer-based organization, ACHI always seeks to work with talented and humanitarian volunteers. Funding for our project activities is still a challenge, and please help us by your generous donations.

Some of these activities include weekly nutrition and fitness classes, cultural and linguistic appropriate socialization, and free community produce and serenity gardening conducted in partnership with our partner organization.
