African Centre for Heritage Activities (ACHA) is a
not-for-profit organisation that has been set up to promote heritage in general, and Maritime and Underwater Cultural Heritage in particular, in Africa and to develop capacity and infrastructure in the field.


The project is focused on collecting Maritime Oral Histories from communities living along the Wild Coast, between Port St Johns and the Msikaba River Mouth in the Eastern Cape!
