HACEY’s Annual Report 2021
2021 was a very eventful year for the organization, as it was seen as a year of unprecedented changes and evolution, with the world experiencing a dynamic shift thanks to COVID-19 and its impactful changes. The staff members and volunteers rose to meet unpredicted challenges that pervaded every aspect of the organization’s operations, ranging from it’s activities to it’s people.
In 2021, the focus was on implementing interventions in the areas of Health, Advocacy, Empowerment and Education. HACEY’s programs cut across diverse projects executed and co-implemented. Hence, the organization was able to reach over 1 million persons across all our projects and activities put together.
