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 CONNECT global philanthropists with domestic organizations in Tanzania and Uganda; we EDUCATE all partners and provide consultation for successful partnership; and we ADVOCATE for improved policies globally and locally to improve pathways for partnership.


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.
