Active Schools in East Africa, 2019

Unleashing the Potential in East Africa

Education and life skills are of the utmost importance for the growing youth population in Africa. Youth must be prepared to succeed in career and life opportunities.

We invest in youth in Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda and Uganda to support their education and personal development.

We strive to educate and empower youth to obtain the skills, knowledge, and experience to prepare them for that next step.

Youth are stepping up to be decision makers and valued leaders in their communities and we are standing right along beside them.
