Background

DefendDefenders (East and Horn of Africa Human Rights Defenders Project) is a regional non- governmental organisation (NGO) based in Kampala, Uganda, that seeks to strengthen the work of human rights defenders throughout the sub-region by reducing their vulnerability to the risk of persecution and by enhancing their capacity to effectively defend human rights.

About Ttaala

Ttaala is a comprehensive skills-building project by DefendDefenders for human rights defenders illuminating the world of digital tools and strategies. Organisations in Ttaala learn how to survive and thrive defending human rights in the digital age while creating impact-driven projects.

Our objective is to close the technical and strategic skills gap for the effective defense of human rights in the digital age and we’re currently in need of creative minds and technical wizards to work with on some inspiring campaigns.

Human Rights Defender of the Month: Omot Agwa Okwoy

In Ethiopia, land grabbing and villagisation has resulted in severe human rights abuses, however, being vocal about these abuses can be extremely risky. Omot Agwa Okwoy, our human rights defender of the month for December 2019, has fought for land rights and the rights of indigenous people in the Gambella region in Ethiopia for almost 20 years – leaving him with visible and invisible scars.
