Through our Programs Department, Akiba Uhaki Foundation offers grants to Human Rights and Social Justice Organizations in the East African region, up to a current limit of Kshs. 500,000 for organizations within Kenya and USD 6,500 for organizations from Burundi, Uganda, Rwanda, Tanzania. Our Grants are meant to support works, processes, fora and movements that demystify Human Rights and Social Justice and initiates radical ways of looking at root causes of poverty, human security, structural violence and other contemporary issues. In particular we seek to address some of the following issues which most conventional funding partners may not usually support including:
Enhancing capacities of Human Rights and Social Justice actors to advance economic, social and cultural rights.
Strengthening non-traditional Human Rights organizations.
Supporting initiatives of marginalised, dispossessed and disenfranchised groups.
Grants are given under our three Program areas namely:
Social Justice Philanthropy and Support
Research and Advocacy
Leadership and Institutional Strengthening
