EI represents 111 affiliates in 50 countries, from Algeria in the north to South Africa in the south, from Sierra Leone in the west to Mauritius in the east. 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.
