Hand in Hand Eastern Africa (HiH EA) is a registered Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) in Kenya with mandate to operate within the Eastern Africa Region and a member of the Hand in Hand Global Network. Her vision is an empowered society with sustainable enterprises and jobs.
HiH EAs mandate is to work within the Eastern Africa region and is currently working in Kenya and Tanzania. The Organization strives to work with the marginalized communities in the area of economic and social empowerment through a participatory approach aimed at lifting themselves out of poverty and vulnerability.
About the task
HIHEA’s project exit strategy includes mobilizing self-help groups into community based organizations that on coming together can strengthen their engagements laterally and bilaterally with market actors, input suppliers, policy units within sub counties and counties.
The CBOs provide a platform for coordinated actions especially for farmers to aggregate their produce and negotiate for better pricing, better input supply rates and better markets.
