Partners and programmes, Eastern Africa

We cooperate with 38 partner organisations in the region, mostly farmers and housing cooperatives with a member base in vulnerable communities. We also collaborate with financial institutions and expert organisations that add value to our work that focuses on changing the situation for the most vulnerable – women and girls. We also cooperate with various actors in our tematic fields, for example the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).

In Eastern African we run two programmes. The Adequate Housing Programme – Advocating Women’s right to Land and Adequate Housing (AWLAH) and The Sustainable Rural Development Programme – Livelihoods and Equality Advancement in Agriculture Programme (LEAP).
