Children, Youth and Women

We are Non Profit Organization dedicated to improve the development and socio-livelihood of Children, Youth and Women in Tanzania.

Elimu Community Light (ECOLI) is a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) registered in 2006. ECOLI envisions Tanzania with educated and developed citizens. Through its mission, it enables, empowers and enhances the capacity of underprivileged groups (Children, Youth and Women) by promoting the access to quality formal and non-formal education, development opportunities and social components necessary to alleviate the pernicious effects of poverty. Since its inception ECOLI has been promoting core programs related to Early Childhood Development (ECD) aspects; provision of quality and equitable basic education; support most vulnerable children to access education and vocational skills; as well as empower youths and women on social-development potentials particularly in Arusha region and Tanzania in general. ECOLI believes that proper child rearing enables holistic development in all development domains of health, nutrition, early learning, responsive caregiving, security and safety. Also believes that linking vulnerable children with education and vocational skill, and empower youths and women to social livelihoods will enhance them to reach their socio-economic development potentials. ECOLI does not doing all these itself rather partners with development partners, cooperate with government and innovators as well as networking with other likeminded NGOs and groups to advocate for rights and development of children, youths and women.
