EFA has been founded in November 2014 by Lilian Msaki in response to an overwhelming need for services for girls and young women at risk for commercial sexual exploitation in Tanzania. For a long time Lillian has been passionate about helping this vulnerable group in the society. For her to live in different cities in Tanzania she observed that majority of girls and women rely on prostitution for survival. This fuels her passion to start EFA. The organization aims to be one of the largest providers of services to commercially sexually exploited girls and women in Tanzania.
