None of the countries in the East and Horn of Africa where we work are free democracies. Impunity is widespread, and freedom of expression and access to free, independent media is heavily restricted.

We support the new generation of human rights defenders pushing to control their future despite a conflict-ridden and repressive environment. We also work to increase the security of our established partner organisations and ensure their voices are heard. 

Support brave human rights defenders
