• Preserving Traditions Together


The Watford African Caribbean Association (“WACAS”) is a small charitable organisation that uses local knowledge and decades of experience to transform the lives of the vulnerable, the elderly and children, whilst preserving African and Caribbean traditions.

WACAS’ services help the elderly stay independent at home and more active in the community. We aim to inspire academic excellence and develop social responsibility in the children attending our school. We care for, help and empower our community.

Let us resolve to keep going regardless of the many challenges – each one of us can do something – and together we can achieve. Althea McLean, OBE, Co-Founder, Former Trustee, Former Director and Former Chair
