WHO WE ARE
Founded in 2002
The EAC is a community-based organization that provides education and health programs to several villages on Kenya's coast.
The EAC’s mission is to help communities eradicate poverty by empowering themselves, by improving literacy for women and children, and by improving the communities’ overall health status.
The organization currently operates a variety of successful programs, including one of the area’s highest performing nursery and primary schools, a health services outreach program via a team of Community Health Workers (CHWs), and an HIV/AIDS education program.
Our programs are designed to support themselves and the environment.
Community Health Workers
Our CHWs travel to surrounding neighborhoods to provide health education and services.
Primary and Junior School
Providing quality education to over 300 students each year.
"Education is the most powerful weapon in which you can use to the world."
Community partners in empowerment and sustainability
Since 2001, the EAC has been providing life changing education and life saving medical care to tens of thousands of individuals living in Eastern Kenya. We go beyond simply delivering services. We partner with the local community by empowering women and children to make a difference in their own lives, while also ensuring access to vital health and educational resources and tools for lasting change.
Programs are tailored specifically to meet the local community’s needs and are guided every step of the way by input from the community. Based in Takaungu, Kenya the EAC acts as a facilitator between community members and donors, a best development best practice that has proven successful for us over many years.
