2016 marked a special year for EIP, celebrating the most number of East African college and university graduates to date. Read more at EIP’s Graduates of 2016


Education has the power to change everything… Just imagine being born into East Africa where the average person earns $2 per day yet must pay $450 for one year of public high school or $2000 for one year of public university.  So what happens if you are dedicated to create a better world but you are not born with the privilege to gain a higher level education? The answer is simple:  Lack of opportunity equals the lack of ability to make changes that our world needs  

Please help our East African students continue to study, develop confidence and have a chance at a better future for their families and communities.

Through education and empowerment, Education Is Power is dedicated to develop the potential in disadvantaged East Africans who are committed to the sustainable development and natural conservation of Africa. We achieve this by providing education opportunities to East Africans at East African secondary and post-secondary institutions, as well as by supporting African primary and secondary teachers to mentor their students to give back to their communities.
