About Akiba Uhaki Foundation (AUF)

AUF is dedicated to supporting and accompanying Human Rights and Social Justice related organizations in tackling root causes of poverty, social injustices and human rights violations in East Africa. The Foundation believes that the basis of sustainable development is social justice and that until the East African Community (EAC) puts the concerns of the ordinary people at the center of all its negotiations and agreements, and truly people-owned, the ‘East African Community’ will remain elusive.

AUF support work that will result in: (a) empowered and assertive communities of people, (b) accountable governments and (c) effective monitoring and feedback mechanism by non-state actors on the integration process.

The objective of the intervention strategy, which runs from 2009 to 2014, is to stimulate capacities of communities within East Africa to claim their rights in development.
