The East Africa Coalition was founded at the Regional Symposium held in Nairobi in November 2015, with Church leaders from East African countries and representatives from regional and local offices of ACT Alliance members Christian Aid, Norwegian Church Aid, Church of Sweden International Mission & Diakonia and the Fellowship of Christian Councils and Churches in the Great Lakes and the Horn of Africa (FECCLAHA), World Vision, the All Africa Council of Churches and other faith based organisations.  The coalition is currently working on establishing a coordination team for the region, with work already under way for national coalitions in Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda.
