Photographers Without Borders: Project Elimu / by Art Zaratsyan

Elimu Impact Evaluation Centre is doing important work in Kenya—and it needs your help.

Elimu Impact Evaluation Centre, founded by McGill University Professor of Economics Matthieu Chemin in 2006, is a local NGO working in Kianyaga, Kirinyaga district in central Kenya, about 100km north of Nairobi. Kianyaga is one of the poorest places on Earth, where many of the locals, mostly ethnic Kikuyu, live their lives in destitute, unsanitary conditions, open to different diseases and afflictions, struggling to survive on a daily basis. Here, Elimu has been helping communities with implementing and evaluating the successes of various development approaches in order to identify the best ways to help reduce poverty, such as Legal Aid, Micro-Health Insurance, Micro-Hydro Electricity and a Community Library in a local school.

Not unlike all other NGOs—the success of Elimu and their continued operation depend on adequate funding. Photographers Without Borders and I have come together to help capture the work and the stories of Elimu, providing the organization with compelling photography to help them promote their work in the community on a local scale, and to raise awareness about Elimu worldwide. But, this project depends on your support—

You can help make this happen! Your donations will help Elimu continue their important work in Kenya!

And, not like you need any incentive to donate to a good cause, but… I am offering these gifts as thank-you for your generosity:
