Launch Of EHAHRDP’s External Evaluation Report On 25th November 2011

Between March and May 2011, a team of independent evaluators reviewed the work of the East and Horn of Africa Human Rights Defenders Project (EHAHRDP) since its formation and establishment in 2005. The main objective of this evaluation was to capture the impact and lessons learnt from EHAHRDP’s work.

The evaluation report provides an assessment of the outcomes and impact that EHAHRDP has both contributed to and, where possible, can reasonably claim attribution, as well as offering evidence-based recommendations.

For over 5 years, EHAHRDP has benefited significantly from committed support of its partners and donors and would therefore like to share with you the outcomes of the report. Some of the recommendations to come out of the evaluation are already being implemented and we would like to call on your support towards acheiving full implementation of the recommendations.

A summary of the evaluation report can be downloaded here and the full report may be obtained by contacting the EHAHRDP secretariat at [email protected]

Human Rights Defender of the month: Kasale Maleton Mwaana

Kasale’s human rights activism precedes his years. The son of pastoralist parents from Ngorongoro district in northern Tanzania, he grew up seeing his parents and entire community having to defend their land and way of life against authorities who thought their lands could be put to better use. Now, at 25, Kasale is already one of the most recognizable advocates of his people’s cause, much to the ire of Tanzanian authorities.
“Our people’s struggle goes back many generations. It started with the pushing out of our forefathers from Serengeti to gazette Serengeti National Park in 1959, and then further evictions from the Ngorongoro crater to gazette the Ngorongoro conservation area in 1975. Since then, every generation has had to resist further evictions. It’s now my generation’s turn,” he says.
