Borne of the social justice movement, the Strategic Initiative for Women in the Horn of Africa (SIHA) Network is an indigenous African women’s rights organisation with a soul. Today we continue to work as an inclusive and diverse feminist women’s rights network that holds a unique position working as a regional civil society organisation in politically volatile contexts. SIHA works in a variety of cultural, political, and geographical environments in Uganda, Ethiopia, Djibouti, Eritrea, Somalia, Somaliland, Sudan and South Sudan.
The Eastern African Sub-Regional Support Initiative for the Advancement of Women (EASSI) was formed in 1996 as a sub-regional, non-profit organisation that strengthens the capacity of women and civil society organisations in governance, leadership, economic empowerment, policy advocacy initiatives and peace and security. EASSI recognises the worth of all persons and the value of diversity and non-discrimination. EASSI works in nine countries namely; Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, Eritrea, Ethiopia, South Sudan and Somalia through its member organisations.
