I welcome you to our 2019 annual report. This report features our work in East Africa where we have been championing just and fair societies since we started working in the region over 50 years ago.
2019 was a year filled with interesting twists and turns but such times only gave us the impetus in propelling extraordinary change. Our ambition in contributing to a free and sustainable world saw us partnering with visionaries, change makers and organizations to advance self-determination particularly in establishing green and open societies.
The very foundations of our humanist principles also reminded us that challenging times can not only be reversed by advancing programs and initiatives that champion social innovation; but for change to happen our true north must be on achieving impact.
Our quality programs across our five thematic areas: Sexual rights and diversity, Freedom and accountability, Women’s empowerment, Sustainable food and Renewable energy championed social change & progress- whose results we have strived to showcase in this report.
