Who is EfK?
EfK stands for “Entrepreneurs for Knowledge“. The non-profit organization is supported by IT giants such as Acronis and many others to break the cycle of poverty and illiteracy by untapping potential in developing countries through education. With this goal in mind, EfK builds and renovates schools together with local partners. In addition, the initiative develops programmes to use technology to improve education.
Since 2018, eight schools have been opened in this way in countries such as Tanzania, Cambodia and Peru. Three are currently under construction and three are in the planning stage. More than 3,000 children have been helped in this way to date.
In the case of the school in the Dominican Republic, the realization partner is the Mariposa DR Foundation, which has been committed to the welfare of children and especially girls for many years.
