We are an international non-governmental organisation based in Tanzania, with its headquarters in the United Kingdom. We create programmes for the disempowered to speak back to their societies and reassert their presence and equality.

Our Voice

We currently tackle the social exclusion of people with albinism in Tanzania and wider East Africa. We deliver Health, Education, Advocacy and Community Programmes, reaching thousands of people with albinism in their own communities on a regular basis. We exist as a catalyst to amplify the voices of others, enabling individuals to shape their own lives and forge their own futures.

Our Cause

Across Africa, people with albinism face severe discrimination. Dehumanising myths destroy families, prompting abandonment and physical violence. Across 25 African countries there have been 165 witchcraft-fuelled murders of people with albinism and a total of 435 attacks and mutilations. Tanzania presents a particularly severe case, with 76 murders and 65 documented attacks since 2006.

Where We Operate

Our Health, Education and Community services operate across Tanzania. Our Advocacy work reaches audiences worldwide.
