Mission Statement

The mission of Elimu Africa is to help support disadvantaged students in Africa by facilitating their pursuit of education, which is vital to combating the cycle of poverty, disease and abuse.

Description

We are a small grassroots organization founded by a group of volunteers from the United States of America who have been touched by the beauty and the hardships of the people of Africa. We raise funds annually to support existing and ongoing educational programs in Tanzania.

We are currently focusing our efforts in Northeast Tanzania. In this area, school is not free. Many families live on only $1.00-$2.00 a day and cannot afford to send their children to school. Our main objective is to support educational opportunities by funding projects at local schools, Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and Community-Based Organizations (CBOs) through a grant process. The word "Elimu" means education in Swahili, the language of Tanzania.
