About Centre for Minority Rights Development
The Centre for Minority Rights Development (CEMIRIDE) is a non-governmental organization in Kenya that works on behalf of minority and indigenous communities in Kenya and East Africa in hopes of protecting their human rights. The Centre promotes respect for the cultural minority and exposes human rights abuses in these countries as means to combat violence and promote peace. Before the debut of CEMIRIDE into the CSO sector, there was no conversation on the existence and the violation of minorities and indigenous peoples rights in Kenya. The organization’s mission is to strengthen the capacities of minorities and indigenous people to secure their social,cultural, political and economic rights. This is informed by reality that minorities and indigenous peoples in Kenya are mostly marginalized and excluded from development processes although they have potential to significantly contribute to national development.
