98% of donations go directly to support education for disadvantaged students in Tanzania. Education is key to improving sustainability.

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 are currently focusing our efforts in Northeast Tanzania, the coastal region of Tanzania and the Islands of Zanzibar. These areas include Kilimanjaro, Arusha, Tanga, Pwani, Dar es Salaam, Zanzibar and Pemba. In Tanzania, school is not free and 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 help support educational opportunities for disadvantaged people so they can have access to education. The word “Elimu” means education in Swahili, the beautiful, rhythmic language of Tanzania. We support existing Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and Community-Based Organizations (CBOs) in Tanzania which provide education to disadvantaged students. Elimu Africa will award annual grants to organizations through an application process. Several Elimu Africa board members have traveled to Tanzania and fallen in love with the lovely, joyful people of this beautiful country. We have empathized with the difficult challenges they face in their lives due to the lack of education. Our goal is to become an agent of change by helping students get their education and break the cycle of poverty. In 2009, we were so happy to have been able to help the following organizations in Tanzania: Holy Childhood Pre and Primary School, Moshi Tanzania Elimu Africa Grant Amount: $4,000.00 for textbooks TEKUA NGO, Usa River, Arusha, Tanzania: Elimu Africa Grant Amount: $4,000.00 for school supplies. Cheju Marine Secondary School, Zanzibar, Tanzania Elimu Africa Grant Amount: $10,000 to sponsor disadvantaged students and for desks and chairs.
