For almost two decades in East Africa, Hivos has partnered with visionaries, individuals and frontrunners to achieve social change. Together, our efforts have given impetus to the birth of a human rights movement that is grounded on establishing just, inclusive and life sustaining societies where people have equal access to opportunities, rights and resources. While our accomplishments are many, each year has presented new challenges that have made us aspire to do even better.
Through smart, bold and daring projects we are constantly honing our strategy by partnering with rightsholders and like-minded partners to champion projects that address the following pressing challenges in East Africa:
- Impacts of climate change
- Decreasing democratic space
- Growing socio-economic inequality
- Sexual minorities attacked from all sides
- Women’s right to bodily autonomy under threat
Interventions in seven countries – over 172 partner organizations – a reach of over 6.8M people
