Africa is a huge region where EI´s affiliated member organisations function in difficult conditions and environments, and in countries which account for the bulk of out-of-school children.

EI works on two current problems that are confronting the continent a whole; the realisation of the Education For All UN Millenium Development Goal and the halting of the HIV/AIDS pandemic.
