The Foundation has several ongoing projects in Kenya, which were visited during the trip. KIOS representatives also facilitated a workshop for small human rights organisations as part of the Kenya partnership programme.

In Tanzania the aim of the trip was to get acquainted with local human rights organisations and to assess the possibilities for KIOS to further expand its work with Tanzanian human rights organisations.
