OSIEA plays an active role in encouraging open, informed dialogue on issues of importance in Eastern Africa.
Through a combination of grant making, advocacy and convening power, OSIEA is able to support and amplify the voices of pro-democracy organisations and individuals in the region and to strengthen their capacity to hold their governments accountable.
This includes efforts to defend and support rights activists and pro-democracy advocates who come under attack for their work.
OSIEA covers 100% of direct project costs, but does not fund travel to attend conferences, seminars or workshops.
