Our Vision: A just world in which all people enjoy their rights and live in dignity.

Akiba Uhaki Foundation (AUF) is a grant-making organization dedicated to advancing social justice in East Africa. AUF was established in 2006 and registered as a foundation in Kenya in 2007. 'Akiba' is a Swahili word for investment or savings while 'Uhaki', is an acronym for 'Uteteaji wa Haki za Kibinadamu'. Akiba Uhaki therefore means investment or investing in the protection of human rights.

AUF supports and accompanies Human Rights and Social Justice (HRSJ) focused organizations, groups and formations to improve HRSJ practice and more effectively address social injustices and human rights violations. In particular, AUF promotes local philanthropy, supports influencing work (advocacy, movement building), brokers strategic partnerships, leverages resources, and facilitates capacity development, research and reflection as a basis of developing and supporting innovative approaches that address the structural and systemic causes of social injustices.
