Education & Entrepreneurship Limited (E&E Ltd) was founded on the 20th October 2011.
The project started in 2004 when some volunteers from the Italian town of Bassano del Grappa met with the Bishop of Njombe – Alfred Maluma – and explained why a technical school was one of the priorities for the development of the area -to “give a chance” to so many young people without any prospects for the future.
After the formation of Jambo Njombe – a temporary association focussed on this project and formed by 4 Social Cooperative in Bassano del Grappa in February 2008 - the construction of the school started with November 2010 as the completion date.
At the same time ACRA-CCS, an Italian Foundation and NGO was looking for an education model for its areas of operation to improve the education and training strategy in developing countries. During its research ACRAconnected with Fundacion Paraguaya – an organisation that manages several schools in Paraguay and now in Tanzania -based on afinancially self sufficient model. At thispoint, the idea to start a non-profit company focussed on education was born but with the aim to educate people from lowest income families to become entrepreneurs to help them escape the poverty trap.
