Africa Educational Trust
Africa Educational trust is an internationally recognised expert in the field of education. We bring education solutions to the most severely disadvantaged in fragile, conflicted and post-conflict regions of Africa. We believe that providing education, giving hope and the means to take charge of their lives brings understanding and change. We have seen that by challenging the local norms which may be detrimental to sections of society, particularly where women and girls are concerned, a new level of peace and stability can be built by the communities.
We believe in local solutions with local teams. We currently work in Somalia, South Sudan, Uganda and Kenya. Our grassroots approach of only employing local staff in the field enables us to negotiate the complex political arenas in times of high insecurity and conflict.
We are small charity, but we have a huge impact, in 2018 we reached over a quarter of a million children and adults through our education programmes. We deliver high quality, cost effective programmes in some of the most conflict affected countries in the world.
