What We Do

Primary Education

AET works in collaboration with local communities to establish, build and furnish classrooms and schols. We set up and aid the provision of mobile and stationary libraries. The Trust has projects that address high drop out rates and provide support for the development of community involvement via Parent Teacher Associations. Read more here.


Secondary Education

AET plays an integral part in the support of examinations, training for teaching staff, head teachers and Ministry of Education officials, construction of classrooms and libraries, and the provision of teaching and learning materials, including ICT. A major aim is to achieve externally recognized quality education. Read more on our secondary education programmes here.


Alternative Education and Basic Skills

IDP skills training class


It is not always possible to provide education according to the usual age categories, in places where institutional structures have been disrupted or destroyed due to conflict and war. For this reason AET provides alternative education and basic skills training to children and young people who have missed out on formal education. Read more about our bespoke programmes here.


Refugees and Internally Displaced People


AET is working with refugees and displaced people to provide educational and vocational training opportunities for people and communities that have suffered displacement and instability. We have projects aimed at reducing poverty and illiteracy among women, children, young and disabled people. Read more here
