OSIEA HAS A NEW STRATEGY!!

After a decade of successfully supporting what many saw as lost and unpopular causes and nurturing movements for persons living on the margins of society, OSIEA now has a new strategy. The primary and over-arching goals in our new strategy (2017-2020) are protection of human rights, the rule of law and equal access to justice; protection of the rights of the marginalized communities particularly women, pastoralists, persons with disabilities, people who use drugs, and LGBTI persons; and advancing accountability, fair distribution, and sustainable use of resources. In this strategy, we also expand our countries of focus to six, to include Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Sudan, South Sudan, and Rwanda. We hope for an Eastern Africa where those who live in the margins of society- youth, women, people with disabilities and sexual minorities- can live in a society that respects them, that recognizes them and protects their basis rights because at the end of the day, Eastern Africa is a better place when we carry everyone along.
