Liberating lives

Our Vision

ERFA’s vision is for access to quality education and life-long learning opportunities for all, supporting empowered communities who determine their own futures

why education?

Education has the power to change everything.

We believe in the power of education to change lives. We know that the best education represents lifelong learning where skills are applied, lessons learned and life skills mastered.

children & adults

We believe education is more than a classroom.

Our focus on education is not only in life changing education for children, but in skills such as financial literacy, farming, trades, health and human rights for adults and children.

our approach

Listening, not telling.

We work with the poorest communities, helping them to create solutions for what they have said their biggest needs are, not by telling them. We work with local communities to deliver programs that promote continuous improvement, wellbeing and liberation for everyone.


Guiding Principles.

ERFA’s development work ensures lives are changed through an empowered education and we are committed to our Guiding Principles.

Best Foot Forward 2021

We’re asking for your help so that SHE can put HER best foot forward.

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, violence against women and girls has intensified.

The opportunity to gain education and skills is the key to HER long-term empowerment.

Our goal is to raise $150,000 in 24 hours on the 12th November 2021, so that disadvantaged women and girls can have access to opportunity through education.
