Hakijamii successfully obtained conservatory orders that stopped demolitions and forceful evictions; and which subsequently compelled the Nairobi Metropolitan Services and The Nairobi County Government to allow the residents of Upendo village to move back into the land and rebuild their houses and businesses. About 1000 families had been evicted and property destroyed.
through the support of various partners such as Planned Parenthood Global, Hakijamii was able to implement a SRH project in Mombasa County that aimed to investigate the impact of the Reproductive Health Act in Mombasa County. The goal of the project was to debunk the pre-existing social norms that hinder the realisation of certain SRH information, goods, and services.
Capacity building on Land Rights
Through the support of WWF, Hakijamii has built the capacity of 85 indigenous minority people drawn from the Maasai and Ogiek Communities on their land rights in the context of climate change and conservation. The indigenous communities gained relevant skills and knowledge for the enhanced recognition and protection of their land rights in the formal and community systems in Kenya.
