 East African Seafarers' Assistance Programme

The East African Seafarers' Assistance Programme is an independent organization for the welfare of seafarers and a piracy-monitoring group. The organisation was founded in 1996 to assist captured and other seafarers in need and to track and report the actions and effects of pirates off the coast of Africa, specifically, in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Somalia and Kenya where piracy has traditionally been a major problem. The current head of the group is Andrew Mwangura.
