Our Mission

To provide Kenyan communities access to the education, skills and support they need to realize their full potential.

Our Vision

Kenyan children and their families are empowered with the confidence, skills and self-awareness to help break the cycle of poverty, instil independence, and build thriving, prosperous communities.



We provide quality learning experiences for children, youth and their families to increase academic and digital literacy and improve school retention so that all can achieve their educational and work-related goals.


We encourage self-sustainability for youth and adults through entrepreneurial skills and financial literacy, especially for young women disadvantaged by detrimental local cultural practices and single mothers with no social safety net around them.


We guide youth after high school to find pathways to more meaningful futures through skills development, employment planning and entrepreneurship.

Our Projects

Our first focus is children at risk and vulnerable girls from rural communities. Through sponsorships and mentorship, we work to enhance school retention, academic performance and entrepreneurship experiences.

Co-Creating a Learning Community

Elimu is empowering learners of all kinds, especially youth, women and other vulnerable members of society, in achieving their educational and work-related goals.
Over the years, our objectives have been refined from “enhancing access to education” to providing solutions for children, youth and adults to achieve their life goals at every stage of their learning.
Education and economic empowerment can make the difference and that is where Elimu is well placed. With your support, we will change the future. Join the movement!
