The East African Center for the Empowerment of Women and Children (EAC) is a non-profit organization that helps communities achieve empowerment by increasing literacy for women and children, improving health status, and eradicating poverty.
Join us in our 11th year of bringing life-changing and life-enriching services and programs to individuals living in rural Kenya.
In 2009, the EAC was awarded a grant from One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) that provided for a new classroom, electricity to the Vutkaka Junior School and 100 XO laptops for students in grades 4, 5 and 6. The laptops have become a part of the curriculum and are being used daily in and outside the classroom. Learn more about the OLPC program at Vutakaka Junior School here.
The East African Center is proud to share with you
