Haki na Sheria Initiative was initially established in 2010 and registered as community based organisation 2012. The organisation?s capacity grew as it started handling matters like citizenship at the national level. This change necessitated the change in status and the organization got registered with the NGO Coordination Board as a national NGO in 2017. Haki na Sheria Initiative exists to empower marginalized communities to understand, respect, promote, demand and effectively claim their human rights and obligations in pursuit of an equitable society. HSI?s is committed to the vision of a Kenya where all marginalized communities live dignified lives free of human rights violations. In HSI?s view, change requires a local catalyst. The change can only be built by civic engagement of the local communities through public education and raising awareness about human rights, seeking accountability at all levels of the government through local communities? engagement and filing public interest litigation cases and through engaging with strategic networks and movement building to a society that is free from human rights violations. Overall objectives: Improved awareness for 600 poor and marginalised pastoralist on community land rights; Register Sarirah community land with national land commission in Garissa County by the end of 24 months.
