Our Impact

Empowering Communities, Conserving Nature, Enabling Education
With a focus on community empowerment, wildlife conservation education, and support for Children With Disability (CWD), we’ve touched numerous lives. We tackle the urgent threats to Tanzania’s wildlife, work alongside local communities for sustainable livelihoods that reduce poverty, and provide crucial education support to overcome barriers to growth. Join us in creating a brighter, inclusive future.

Our Projects

Community Empowerment

We work with local communities to increase their capacity to develop sustainable livelihood options that reduce poverty by improving the economic status of vulnerable women through income-generating programs and reducing the marginalization of women by enabling them to become self-reliant.

Wildlife Conservation

Tanzania’s wildlife faces unprecedented level of threats from loss and fragmentation of habitat, poaching, hunting, climate change, and population growth.


The Pastoralist Maasai Community has an illiteracy rate of approximately 75% due to restricted educational opportunities, particularly for women and girls. The aim of ECIOs education programs is to improve education access and increase girls’ school enrollment.

Supporting Children with Disabilities

The Maasai community believes the disability is a curse. This misconception about the cause of disabilities results from cultural beliefs. We work to eradicate this misconception through various initiatives.

Climate Change

In this programme, ECIO empowering communities with knowledge that would help to control climate change effects, by establishing climate change adaptation strategies that would help affected communities be resilience to climate shocks.
