The Refugee Coalition of East Africa was initiated following a discussion by representatives of the largest LGBT refugees CBOs in Nairobi. The idea was welcomed, spread to other refugee CBOs to as far as Kakuma refugee camp. Several meetings were held to discuss the workability of the idea; after series of the discussion and adoption meetings, Member CBOs agreed on having the idea put in place, and all member CBOs have equally contributed to the entire process of forming the coalition. The coalition aims to bring together all refugee CBOs in Kenya to achieve a common goal driven by the set forth common objectives, mission and other activities.

Our Goal: The overall goal of RefCEA is to unite the various independent refugee organizations in East Africa under an umbrella organization, to facilitate long-term planning; advocacy and representation; fiscal management and fundraising; and oversee research initiatives representing the LGBTIQ refugee community.

Our Objectives:

a)          To act as a strategic planner for all the Member Organizations and a supervising body for a unified voice to represent all issues of concern for Member Organizations over the long term.

b)          To advocate for refugee representation in human rights organizations; facilitate local community integration through social activities, mentorship, and job training; document abuses of human rights; and push for durable refugee solutions including resettlement.

c)           To act as fiscal agent for LGBTIQ refugee groups providing financial management, mentorship, and assistance in financial processes.

d)          To facilitate LGBTIQ refugee representation in evidence-based initiatives including research and policy-making in vulnerable populations, including refugees, in Kenya and East Africa.

This crowdfunding campaign is being hosted by Michael B. Clark, member of the Advisory Board of the Refugee Coalition of East Africa, (RefCEA).
