Haki Mashinani (HM) is a Kenyan organization dedicated to legally empower the most vulnerable and marginalized members of the society in Kenya. It aims to provide specific legal services (consultations and case solutions) by assisting people in obtaining legal documentation that will enable them to access the laws in the country in order to enjoy the protection and opportunities these provide. With correct documentation, individuals can become full citizens and are able to secure access to opportunities for their specific situation which include education, health care, property, financial capital or business. Complicated obstacles and lack of knowledge that prohibit people from participating in society and which keep them trapped in the poverty cycle can be averted with the very simple legal solutions that Haki Mashinani provides.
The field officer/Social worker will be based primarily in one of the five legal outlets of Haki Mashinani located in the informal settlements including Kamukunji, Kibera, Korogocho and Naivasha.
The legal officer/Social worker will offer advice to clients according to the services offered by Haki Mashinani on civil documentation, land and property issues and business registration.
In coordination with the Legal Department the field officer will manage, organize and facilitate legal trainings to certain target groups in the outlet.
