In Mairowa Village, had only one Government Primary school when we went there 2004. There is no English Medium school and some people take their children to Kenya and Uganda to get good quality education.  There was only one nearby Secondary school at Longido, 34 kilometers from Mairowa Village. The fact that people are normadic, widely scattered and also fear wild animal attack has hindered many from coming to school in the past.

The area is one of the places where Malaria, Typhoid, Pneumonia, Asthma, Tuberculosis, Diarrhea, and HIV/AIDS. HIV/AIDS prevalence is high in the area and has caused the presence and the growing number of many orphans and widows within the area who could not fully work and operate to provide for good and quality education, health services and daily support to their families. In addition, there was also water shortage within the village.

So Ereto East Africa Foundation decided to facilitate Mairowa community by focusing on the needs of identified orphans, children from poorest of the poor families, growing numbers of street kids, and widows within the area by providing education, health services, water supply, HIV/AIDS education and, Community and Church Leadership development
