HAKI NAWIRI AFRIKA
Advancing social justice in marginalised communities and among university students
Haki Nawiri Afrika recognises the negative impacts of climate change on vulnerable groups in Kenya and Africa and at the same time is aware of the technical nature of available information on climate change. The organisation creates awareness on climate change online and off line.
This is implemented through utilising political and technical education on the entire food production process from soil to seeds, care for crops, harvest and post-harvest. The organisation promotes smallholder farmers’ organising.
The organization engages university students, in school and out of school youth on social justice through Haki Clubs, Student-Police dialogues, Psychosocial Support and resilience building sesions among other programs.
The organisation through various forums champions for equal opportunities for all genders as well as equal treatment before the law and in service provision. We sensitize the youth and the community at large on gender justuce.
