Haki Madini Kenya (HMK) is a community centered coalition that brings together communities in and around mining areas, civil society organisations, faith based organisations and individuals engaging in the mining industry with the primary aim of promoting responsible stewardship of mining resources.

Our goal is to enhance the capacity of HMK and communities affected by the mining sector to engage effectively in national and local decision-making processes on mining issues and building a broad-based platform for collective action.

Our mission is to effectively promote community participation, multi-stakeholder engagement and responsible stewardship in the mining sector in Kenya.

Mr. Alfayo is the secretary to the Osiri Community Welfare Group. We met him in July 2016 during our community engagement forums and he has participated in a number of our other activities. At some point when we had a joint monitoring visit from the Haki Madini team in May this year, Alfayo was very instrumental in taking the team through what NCCK had done. At first we noted him to be a quiet person who never spoke much in meetings.

However, over time, Alfayo has come out to represent the group in many meetings and his contribution has been amazing.

Quoting his words during the presentation:

NCCK has opened our eyes. When they came, it is like we were in darkness and never knew what to do. They taught us the mining act and told us msipojipanga mtapangwa (a term used to mean if you don’t organize yourself, you will be exploited). So we have known what to do in applying for licenses and being in groups
