The Initiative for Equality and Non-Discrimination (INEND) is a local not-for-profit organisation
that undertakes strategic actions towards equality, acceptance and inclusion in the Coast Region
INEND’s programming is innovative, courageous and visionary and is carried out by a passionate,
professional and dedicated team. The activities we will be undertaking in this strategic plan are
exciting and proactive, and will be consciously supportive of our SGM communities.
INEND as a non-membership organisation, is accessible to all, and remains committed to entrenching equality and non-discrimination, and the rights of sexual and gender minorities. With the flagship boda boda project, INEND has made considerable progress in the few years of its existence, not only curving out a niche for itself, but also distinguishing itself with trendsetting advocacy, capacity development and published research.
INEND carries out research to generate knowledge and information on issues affecting sexual and gender minorities for evidence-based programming and interventions.
INEND champions for a change of laws and policies and addressing any gaps to ensure that they are inclusive and participatory for sexual and gender minorities, and fostering social change, in order to reduce stigma, discrimination and any form of violation.
INEND works to create a platform for the sharing and exchange of skills and knowledge in the areas of organisational development and programming, amongst our partners and networks, in order to build a stronger movement.
INEND seeks to build strong networks with allies, supporters and change-makers, to facilitate dialogue and meaningful engagement within formal and informal spaces, as well as having a collective approach to championing human rights.
