About the East Africa Learning Hub

The East Africa Learning Hub is jointly founded by  TAABCO, a research and development consultancy based in Nairobi, Kenya, and the Joint Learnining Initiative (JLI). JLI is a global network of researchers, practitioners, and local faith actors, who share a commitment to advancing evidence on the roles and contributions of local faith actors in humanitarian and development action

The idea

Since its inception in 2012, JLI has founded numerous global Learning Hubs, convening a transdisciplinary collective of actors from around the world, to address evidence gaps on issues of common interest – such as Gender Based Violence, Ending Violence Against Children, Refugees and Forced Migration, and Anti-Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery

In 2020, JLI made a strategic decision to focus its efforts on challenging the unequal power dynamics that we see manifesting in the way evidence is used and created globally. JLI’s Fair & Equitable Initiative is the organisation’s response to these power imbalances in the humanitarian and development sector. The Initiative seeks to shift power, resources and leadership to local, national, and regional levels, by creating and support new Regional Learning Hubs.

Regional Hubs would be transdisciplinary, horizontal learning communities, allowing for local, national, and regional actors to define and pursue their own evidence agendas. It is on this backdrop that the East Africa Learning HUB was birthed.
