Who We Are
Kilimanjaro Education Foundation (KEF) was founded in 2006 and is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Our mission is to improve the educational environment in Tanzanian public schools by supporting local projects ranging from the provision of learning materials to the building of essential and safe facilities and amenities.
KEF works hand in hand with local communities, schools and government to identify those projects for which KEF can create the maximum impact. Our team on the ground in Tanzania oversee execution of initiatives from beginning to end with support from the US team. KEF’s volunteers and donors share in and impart not only our passion for children and the power of quality education, but also in our core values of collaboration, sustainability and empowerment.
