The Alliance aims to ensure that the African Union Plan of Action to End Attacks and other Human Rights Violations Targeting Persons with Albinism (2021-2031) is implemented at the national level, including through national action plans with multi-year budgets; and that the positive effects of these measures concretely advance the enjoyment of human rights by persons with albinism in the Africa region. • Swaziland Association of Persons with Albinism (SAPA) was founded in 2013 by Philemon Gama and registered in 2016. It is the first Swati Association to raise awareness on the conditions of persons with albinism (PWA) in Eswatini. 1|Page
