Support vulnerable children in Arusha community to access audiovisual educational materials and expand their learning opportunities after school hours, master lessons skills and improve their education performance.

Elimu Community Light is believing that “All children have the right to access quality and equitable education’’. We promote the access to quality and equitable education for all children at pre-primary, primary and secondary education levels through enhancing initiatives that promote learning opportunities both school and home. We prioritize to support underserved children to access education.
Elimu Community Light (ECOLI) is undertaking an initiative that promotes learning beyond the school environment known as Jifunze Nyumbani (Learn at Home) through producing and distributing audiovisual materials for pre-primary, primary and ordinary secondary education levels in the Arusha community.  The initiative breaks through the current challenges limiting learning opportunities to many students including, learning practices that end at school; overcrowded classes which reduce students’ learning attention; insufficient students text books, teaching and learning resources; and unaffordable costs to access remedial sessions after schools’ hours especially, to underserved children.
The initiative supports friendly learning environment to students with difficulty in mastering literacy, numeracy and other subject skills during classroom learning sessions; it enables students to revise classes, it enables students to take notes and carry out previous lessons exercise taught in case he/she missed them due to sickness or menstruation period challenges to girls.
