ELIMU MEANS EDUCATION IN SWAHILI
At Elimu we have built an international community around the theme of education and established a charitable organization for children and youth in Kenya. What does it take to make a charity for vulnerable children succeed? It takes Vision, Passion, Sacrifice and Commitment. It also take funding, and we need your help.
Over twelve years, Elimu has helped 50 young women gain independence with their own sewing businesses. We’ve kept over 200 kids from dropping out of school. Our Elimu Resource Centre receives up to 300 primary and high school students per day during school holidays and delivers a digital reading program to classrooms for children who may never have touched a textbook before.
