Formal Education

Education is a pervasive obstacle to success for the East Africa child. According to World Bank data the problem is primarily one of having available channels of an educational landscape, its infrastructure and resources as evidenced by lack of primary education that is well outside of reasonable limits. We want to equip any and anyone interested in starting schools, sustaining and growing schools, that needs help with books, help with supplies, help with curriculum. Our focus is to build a sustainable foundation for a vibrant educational landscape amenable to influence, and offering a path towards an investment in our youth.
