In many parts of Africa, people with albinism are misunderstood, mistreated and even attacked or killed. We work for a day when people with albinism will take their rightful place in every level of society and the days of discrimination will be a faint memory. Across Africa, people with albinism face issues around:
- Discrimination & Rejection
- Superstition & Witchcraft
- Human Rights Abuse & Attacks
- Health Issues
Since 2008, we have worked tirelessly to ensure students with albinism in Tanzania have access to safe, high-quality education while also spreading awareness about albinism and fighting for the protection and human rights of all people with albinism.
Under The Same Sun is a registered charity passionately committed to ending discrimination and violence against persons with albinism and facilitating social inclusion and participation. We do this through advocacy and education. UTSS acts globally, with a current focus on Africa.about us
