In August 2020, the HI East African Region (EAR) was launched encompassing 3 countries (Kenya, Rwanda, and Uganda), with Uganda as the Regional Hub. Each of the three countries each have vibrant program, with experienced staff and strong presence in both humanitarian and development context. HI in Kenya and Rwanda have been operational since the early 1990s, and Uganda since 2017.
All three countries implement a number of projects under similar technical domains such as Rehabilitation, Mental Health and Psychosocial Support, Inclusive Education, Livelihoods and Resilience, and Health but each also have their own specific technical focus in other areas. All 3 countries work with local partners, and ensure strong advocacy on the rights of persons with disabilities.
