Head of Risk Management

About Kamara

Kamara is a social enterprise that provides security management strategies, investigative capacities and advisory solutions to social impact actors.  Kamara offers practical, implementable and fit-for-purpose solutions grounded in strong operational in-field experience in high-risk territories to advance social good.

Kamara, meaning “safe house” in ancient Greek, was born out of the need to make specialised human rights protocol in risk management, investigations and strategies accessible to more organisations who endeavour to achieve positive social change. Kamara supports human rights organisations ranging from labour rights to environmental defenders, NGOs and their donors.   

Kamara was founded by Oren Yakobovich, former CEO of Videre Est Credere, to provide more organisations endeavouring to achieve positive social change with access to expertise and support that will improve their holistic security and ultimately their ability to achieve their vision.
