WHO WE ARE
SULLIVAN REED is a registered non-profit organization based in Kenya whose vision is to create a world where no one is left behind and LGBT people are free from discrimination, persecution and have equal opportunities in life including accessing employment, training, education, financial services, healthcare, housing, places of faith and public services.
SULLIVAN REED’s mission is to create innovative tools, programs and policy recommendations that enable women, youth and LGBT people step out of poverty and lead healthy lives.
At SULLIVAN REED we are of the idea that every human being is AWESOME. This for us means that everyone deserves equal opportunities, equal treatment, and a place at the table regardless of who they are, whom they love or where they come from. It is on this premise that our organization is founded.
SULLIVAN REED is committed to diversity of people and diversity of thought. We recognize that it is these individual differences and uniqueness that make us an innovative and outstanding organization. We do not discriminate based on age, race, gender, religion, ethnic background, physical ability, gender identity or sexual orientation. As a matter of fact, we strive to tap into these individual differences and help other organizations do the same.
For a long time, the women, the youth and the LGBT+ persons have been left behind in the developmental agenda, and that’s where we come in to bridge that gap.
OUR VALUES AND BELIEFS
At SULLIVAN REED, we believe in excellence, innovation, creativity, professionalism, diversity and inclusion. We strongly believe that our biggest asset is our trusted relationship with our constituents and proven results that work.
Our value-driven, human-rights approach is the bed-rock on which our decisions are made. The members we serve, the suppliers we work with, the talent we hire and wider stakeholders’ engagement are largely as a result of our commitment to our values.
At SULLIVAN REED we believe that the best solutions come from the people themselves, and our interventions reflect that local context and individual situation that our constituents find themselves in.
