Cemiride Vacancies 2020
Having achieved significant gains for MIPs through advocating for their recognition, CEMIRIDE has realigned its value proposition to focus on economic empowerment and sustainable livelihoods for MIPs.
This realignment puts CEMIRIDE in a better position to tackle their marginalisation and exclusion from development processes that has led to high levels of poverty and conflicts and impeded their ability to contribute significantly to national development
Strengthening the capacities of minorities and indigenous peoples [MIPs] to secure their economic, social, cultural and political rights.
- Respect for MIP rights as human rights
- Good Governance
- Equality and Equity
- Gender Mainstreaming
- Respect for Diversity
- Enhance the principle of responsible Stewardship, Transparency and Accountability
CEMIRIDE has a definite edge as it is the only civil society organisation (CSO) specifically focused on MIPs at the national level in Kenya.
To this end, CEMIRIDE has over the last seventeen years focused on advocacy for the recognition of minorities and indigenous peoples (MIPs) in political, legal and social processes.
This has been achieved mainly through advocacy work. In its next strategic phase CEMIRIDE is focusing on economic empowerment of these communities for sustainable livelihoods. This will be achieved through advocacy, research, knowledge sharing, capacity development, strategic partnerships and networking.
