What schools do we work with?

Since EPAfrica was formed in the early 1990s we have worked with hundreds of rural secondary schools across East Africa, starting out in Kenya before expanding to Uganda in 2013. We work closely with each partner school to create a sustainable difference to the quality of education provided. Every EPAfrica partner school is carefully selected, so please check that your school meets the following criteria before applying:

- Rural (over 30 minutes from the nearest town)

- Under-resourced

- Established (over 2 years of KCSE/O-Level results or equivalent)

- Situated in Kisii or Kakamega districts in Kenya, or the Mbarara district in Uganda

Our model is designed to ensure that we reach the most under-resourced schools and have the greatest impact. In Kenya, we therefore primarily work with government district schools, rather than provincial schools. In Uganda, we work with both private and government schools.


The Application Process

"When you [EPAfrica] came, we had a building. Now, we have a library and a lab. Actually, some parents who came to the school appreciate it and say they'll send their children here next year."
