Many millions of people in East Africa continue to live in relentless poverty, excluded from the benefits of economic growth taking place in the region. Among the most vulnerable people of all are those affected by disability (including albinism) and HIV who are often disregarded, stigmatised and denied their basic human rights so that they lack self worth, opportunity and hope.


Our vision is for the most vulnerable children, women and men in East Africa to be respected as equals, free from poverty, discrimination and fear and to have appropriate education, good health and sustainable livelihoods. We will work towards this by: (1) Helping to provide locally-run, essential support, opportunities and services for vulnerable people, especially those affected by poverty and stigma. (2) Supporting local partners to implement life-changing, sustainable development projects.
