Welcome to EdPowerment, Inc.

EdPowerment's programs are anchored in the Kilimanjaro region of Tanzania.

  While visitors challenge themselves on the mountain, many who live under its gaze face a very different kind of climb every day.

Individuals 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 in Tanzania's educational system for discarded teens, young adults and locals  to lift themselves and their community.

Our Programs

Please see the announcement about KIWOCE's change in status and EdPowerment's path ahead on the KIWOCE page.


Since 2010, programs funded by EdPowerment have achieved the following:

KIWOCE: Nearly 500 youth and young adults have taken academic coursework (QT and PC secondary equivalency).  Since 2015 nearly 200 teens & young adults have taken computer training; over 1000  have taken Pre Form 1 & 5 programs; over 2,000 have attended special camps and seminars; hundreds of youth have participated in Clubs; and over 150 community members have joined the library. EdPowerment's operational funding has made this possible.

Tomorrow’s Scholar-Leader Program: Nearly 70 students, whose educational options after primary school had been limited or ended, now have completed or still pursue higher level degrees that lead to independence. Our alumni include teachers, skilled laborers, a lawyer and two doctors. We continue to open doors for motivated and capable young adults to achieve their potential.

Connects Autism Tanzania: EdPowerment's funding from 2010 - 2020 enabled over 1000 caretakers and professionals, who serve those with intellectual disabilities, to learn vital, life-changing information in forums and workshops.  Thousands of others  attended advocacy events and learned from media broadcasts. In recent years, CAT introduced special needs protocols such as IEPs and inclusion methods into the Tanzanian system. CAT continues to be a leading voice for the intellectually disabled and special needs population in Tanzania.
