About the Institute

The Young Women’s Leadership Training Institute has gradually evolved into one of the most exciting and rewarding choices for young women in Eastern Africa. More than a decade in leadership training, EASSI boasts of training over 500 young women in Eastern Africa. Some of the beneficiaries have gone up leadership ranks and proved that young women can also bring special leadership traits to the workplace. Others have received awards for their innovative work that has resulted from their acquired skills. To EASSI, the leadership training is about personal success and broadening opportunities for the young women and the women’s movement.


The Eastern African Sub-regional Support Initiative for the Advancement of Women (EASSI) is a registered sub-regional civil society organization working in eight countries namely Burundi, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Somalia, Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda and Tanzania. EASSI was born in 1996 after the Beijing Conference and is mandated to monitor the commitments of Eastern African governments towards gender equality.

With a history of fifteen years of existence and commitment to the transformation of gender relations, EASSI envisions a society where all enjoy gender equality, social justice, peace and development. EASSI’s mission is to facilitate follow-up of the Beijing and African Platforms for Action in order to enhance the advancement of women and social justice. Some of the human rights instruments that form the basis of EASSI’s work are: the Beijing and African Platforms for Action; the Protocol to the African Charter on Human and People’s Rights on the Rights of Women in Africa (Maputo Protocol); and the Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW).
