Discovering East Africa is a non profit that developed from the experiences of our founder Emily Matthews. Being given the opportunities to explore and volunteer in different communities as a child gave Emily a passion for education both at home and abroad.
Discovering East Africa believes that all students deserve the opportunity to learn and grow in a safe environment. Through education, we can all strive for a better world.
