About Us

The opportunities in East Africa today are great. Many countries are experiencing growth in resources, education, and investment. However, much of this opportunity is concentrated in a handful of urban cities and accessible by international organizations only, while thousands of domestic organizations, run entirely by local experts, remain on the periphery. These organizations are also tipping the scale towards development and they need a bridge to resources.

Improve the flow of philanthropy to East Africa. We do this by providing resources and support to local community development organizations.

We believe local solutions are the best solutions and we invest in the capacity of local community leaders and their organizations.


To improve the flow of philanthropy to East Africa, donors must start by first connecting with domestic organizations and funneling resources into the hands of local exerts. This is what makes EAF different. We create the bridge for this new era of partnership. We are successful because we have a network of outstanding organizations in Tanzania and Uganda.
