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, a 501(c)3 non profit, believes that all young people deserve a chance to explore the world, global issues and be a part of the solution. Through quality education students can have access to the opportunities for a better future. Our current focus is supporting rural schools in East Africa. We provide school supplies, money for refurbishments, and stand alone school projects.
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.
