Education Partnerships Africa

EPAfrica invests in partner schools both financially and through hours of volunteer time. Our programmes are delivered by our highly-trained Project Workers working in collaboration with the management, teachers, students and communities of our partner schools. We don't teach. We invest.

Over 25 years, EPAfrica has had a huge impact in East Africa. Last summer, for example, we worked in 17 schools in East Africa, and invested a total of £40,750 directly into these schools.

Founded 1990

  • Mission statement

    We aim to improve secondary school education for young people in rural Kenya. We are a student based organisation, working in direct partnership with schools and developing their capacity for self led growth. This is primarily achieved through equipping schools with a solid resource base, and also through supporting a wider, more holistic programme.

  • Aims

    Education Partnerships Africa aims to:

    • Facilitating Learning - student’s opportunities to gain qualifications, skills, experience and knowledge are enhanced at school.
    • Improving Health - Students are equipped with the knowledge, attitudes and facilities needed to lead healthier lives and spread good health practices within their community.
    • Strengthening School Organisation - the School is organised and well-run, led by motivated leaders with appropriate strategic direction, inspiring pride and success in the school community.
    • Realising Post-Secondary Opportunities - School leavers are prepared to benefit from and realise the potential gained through their secondary education.
    • Supporting Student Welfare and Rights - Students are happy and safe at school and have the opportunity to thrive despite social and financial challenges.
