Game Changer, Erna Grasz, is Educating East African Youth to Thrive in a Global Economy.
Early in her life, Erna began to understand that education could lead to a better life and a way out of poverty. During her career as an electrical-systems engineer, Erna met Emmy Moshi, a local Tanzanian, and Hellen Nkuraiya, a Maasai woman from Kenya, on a trip to East Africa. She was inspired by their dreams to create their own schools to give back to their communities. The three kept in touch and Erna’s passion for education turned into a passion for education in Africa. The three women worked together, sharing their ideas and passions, and created Asante Africa Foundation in 2006. Today, the organization has helped to educate over 500,000 children in over 400 schools in the most rural communities in Kenya and Tanzania.
