Wajir paralegal network is a registered community based organization (CBO) in Kenya operating in the pastoral district of greater Wajir. It was formed to promote good governance in the marginalized community of Wajir and the entire region of north-eastern province. WAPNET provides a pro-active approach in tackling human rights issues and bringing social and economic justice to the people of Wajir. Such an approach has been absent in the past. Cases of rape, gender based violence and land disputes are often settled out of court and justice is rarely served; as evidenced by the historical injustices and gross human rights violations in Northern Kenya such as the infamous Wagalla massacre. 80% of the population in North Eastern Kenya are illiterate and because of this are unaware of their basic human rights. They are also unable to afford legal fees and so are not able to bring their cases to be heard in a fair court.
