The EAC is a registered U.S. non-profit organization with 501(c)3 status, and is governed by an elected board of directors and with leadership from our Executive Director and Board President.
In Kenya, our activities are carried out through the Vutakaka Community Center where we provide adult and child education, health education and information, and poverty eradication programs.
Our activities in the United States are focused on educating the public on the problems and opportunities facing women and children in East Africa, fundraising to support our work, and providing Americans and those from other countries with a way to get involved through volunteering in the U.S. and in Kenya. We see ourselves as a link between those in higher and lower income countries, and a vehicle for transferring much needed resources and eradicating poverty. It is our hope that through helping others become empowered, we will connect with our greater humanity, and all of our lives will be enriched in the process.
