The Maasai word “Ereto” means “mutual support”. Ereto East Africa Foundation (EEAF) was established to help marginalized communities in a holistic manner. EEAF assists a community in bringing about it's own development, not by taking over its responsibilities, but by mobilizing people to use locally available resources and integrating these resources with outside help for their advancement.
The aim of Ereto EAF is to establish and operate Primary English medium schools which promote academic excellence, operate vocational training centers, and define other needed programs for children. The students will include Orphans, Vulnerable Children (OVCs) and children from paying families, with a school's ultimate goal being self sustainability. A broader aim is to equip and empower local community leadership on good governance by way of seminars and workshops
