Structure

Structure

 

The structure of SAA is based on a matrix management model, which reflects both its thematic and country-level focus, and the high degree of programmatic integration.

SAA is governed by the Board of Directors, which is chaired by Professor Ruth Oniang’o and consists of 11 members. (see Board Members for detailed Board Members list)

Executive Director, Mr. Masaaki Miyamoto, serves as chief executive officer. He is complemented by a Managing Director – Dr. Juliana Rwelamira – who is the chief operating officer of the organization, and who works closely with the Managing Director of SAFE in the area of human resource development.

The organization’s strategic goals correspond directly with the five Themes shown in the figure below, and there are five Thematic Directors (one of which is the SAFE MD) who lead planning and programming for their respective areas. Four Country Directors drive the implementation of country programs, with staff of each Theme located in the four current focus countries. (see Staff for detailed staff lists and contact information)
