- Miscellaneous Information:
Centre for Enhancing Democracy and Good governance (CEDGG) is a grassroots civil society organization which was founded in 1995 and works to empower vulnerable people/groups and ethnic communities on governance and development rights. CEDGG was among the first organizations that provided human rights education to the Endorois community.
CEDGG’s work among the Endorois community was instrumental in energizing the community to start organizing to demand for their rights. The formation of the Endorois welfare management Committee (that later on became the Endorois Welfare Council) that spearheaded the Endorois struggle in the earlier years was the brainchild of CEDGG. CEDGG provided legal hosting of Endorois Welfare Council before registration. Its mandate is empowering vulnerable groups through training, advocacy, networking and linkages in areas of human and constitutional rights, cultural heritage and equitable distribution of resources. Beneficiaries include disadvantaged groups such as ethnic minorities, women, youth, children, Internally Displaced Persons and the poor.
