EACHRights, or The East African Centre for Human Rights, is a non-partisan, Regional Non-Governmental Organization established in May 2010. Its mission is to initiate and implement programs that promote, protect, and enhance Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights (ECOSOC Rights) in Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania for vulnerable and marginalized groups.
EACHRights was founded to address a lacuna in the promotion and protection of economic, social, and cultural rights in East Africa. It emerged in response to consultations with academics and human rights practitioners who identified gaps and opportunities in the human rights landscape of the region.
The establishment of EACHRights was driven by emerging opportunities and developments, including the promulgation of the new Constitution of Kenya, advancements in human rights courts, and ongoing judicial reforms, among other factors.
EACHRights focuses on three core programs: Right to Education, Right to Health, and Child Protection for children. These programs address specific challenges faced by vulnerable groups in East Africa.
