Welcome to EdPowerment, Inc.
Adventurers Journey Every Year To Climb Majestic Mt. Kilimanjaro.
While visitors challenge themselves on the mountain, villagers who live under its gaze face a very different kind of climb every day.
Young people born into poverty beneath Mt. Kilimanjaro struggle to access education that can take them from meager subsistence to economic security - the ability to cover essential needs of food, decent shelter, hygiene, clothing, health care and education.
This is the WHY Behind EdPowerment
EdPowerment provides A WAY BACK ... AND A WAY FORWARD for discarded youth, young adults and locals in Tanzania's educational system so they can lift themselves and their community.
