Niko na Haki Program
This is an awareness creation program where we engage in various activities that advocate for the rights and welfare of Persons with Albinism. These activities include: civic engagement forums, photo tours through travels and public lectures. In the past, these activities have resulted to a great impact locally, regionally and internationally. In terms of creating awareness on albinism through civic engagements, we have so far covered majority of the counties. The program is informed by the fact that Persons with Albinism continue to face stigmatisation and discrimination in the society. This makes the special-interest group very vulnerable. Across the region, Persons with Albinism are still hunted for ritual purposes despite previous efforts made to combat such a vice, thus the need to do more. We recently conducted an awareness creation campaign in Meru County, where we sensitized the local community on different aspects of albinism. This was prompted by an arson meted against a Person with Albinism by a member of the public.
