"Autism Community of Africa (ACA), is a charitable organization that was established to help and support African families affected by autism, aiming primarily at those from less privileged backgrounds." 

ACA was founded by Bridget Kobenan, an entrepreneur and global pageant competitor who emigrated to the United States over a decade ago. Kobenan, whose educational background is finance, proudly wore the crown of Ms. Congeniality in the World Pageant in 2008 and of Ms. Côte d'Ivoire in both 2008 and 2012. Kobenan is the mother of an autistic son.

Kobenan is partnering with local community organizations and raising funds to help establish much needed autism resources in urban and rural African cities, namely in the countries of Côte d'Ivoire, Gabon, and Liberia.
