Education East Africa
Who we are
Education is the passport to a self-sustaining life. We create and deliver in-service training, books and materials for teachers and pupils in government primary schools, and provide vocational training to young people in order to improve their life’s chances. We help teachers and pupils master skills for life.
Education East Africa is a UK registered charity which operates in Rwanda and Tanzania. In Rwanda the charity offers teacher-training to improve the confidence and ability of teachers to teach English as a foreign language using our New Original English Course (NOEC) books. Those books are enabling teachers to improve their knowledge and skills so that over 1,500 pupils have a good foundation in English as a foreign language. With that foundation they will not be excluded from learning when English takes over as the language of all instruction in Year 4.
Education East Africa was set up by Katy Allen-Mtui who was awarded the honour of an M.B.E. in 2001 for her services to education in Tanzania.
Our long-term commitment to our education projects is one of the reasons for the success of our work. With over 23 years’ experience in East Africa our work, particularly in primary education, is recognised and held in high regard.
"Your donations are what makes all of this possible and what enables our work to continue. I wish you could meet the teachers and the pupils to see with your own eyes how they are benefiting from your generosity. Thank you again for your wonderful support".
