Equal Access International’s 2018 Global Report
While our community-led approach to peacebuilding, equity, and youth empowerment remained consistent, 2018 was a year of change and growth.
2018 Organizational Changes
We welcomed our new President and CEO Byron Radcliffe, moved our headquarters to Washington D.C., and restructured our technical teams from a regional geographic approach to a Practice Area approach. Establishing two central Practice Areas: Peacebuilding & Transforming Extremism and Governance & Civic Engagement. Supporting these Practice Areas are cross-cutting technical impact areas: Gender & Youth; Monitoring, Evaluation, Research, & Learning; and Participatory Media & Technology. We refreshed our branding and relaunched our digital presence bringing our unique community-led approach to life with vibrant colors and images featuring EAI’s high impact work.
Scaling Our programs
Based on success in Nigeria and the Lake Chad Basin, EAI has replicated, adapted, and scaled its transmedia Alternative Messaging Hub model from northern Nigeria to the southern Philippines and Somali-speaking East Africa. These projects train and empower young influencers and messengers in an organic, deliberate, and connected information ecosystem that can rival in size and scope that of violent extremists. As a result of this expansion, EAI now operates in 13 countries, with three new East African countries opening in 2019. We expanded Voices for Peace (V4P) to Mali and Cameroon, scaling our effective and media-informed resiliency work with populations vulnerable to violent extremism.
