About Us


Paranet is a civil society organization that is engaged in active advocacy around the attainment and enjoyment of basic human rights among pastoral communities in Kenya. The organization aims to with partners including donors, relevant state agencies, and communities in ensuring that impoverished and traditionally marginalized pastoralists’ communities do not only access their basic human rights as enshrined in the Kenyan constitution but are also fully informed of their rights and responsibilities as citizens.

At the national level, Paranet aims to actively advocate for the integration of pastoralists’ agenda in the mainstream development process and contribute to efforts geared towards tackling the systemic marginalization and exclusion of pastoralists’ communities. At the county levels, we ensure that policies and programs are informed by the actual needs of rural communities, and at the grass root levels, engaged in effectively tackling the rights’ deprivation and social exclusion that pastoralists’ communities in Kenya have long suffered through dissemination of information, development of advocacy skills, and active community participation.

Apart from advocacy, we partner with rural communities in positively addressing negative social cultural norms in support of long-term, sustainable behavior change at the population level and strengthen community responses to issues through the application of Communication for Development (C4D) Processes. Such interventions include Social and Behavior Change Processes in the areas of: Health Interventions, Environmental Awareness, Peace & Conflict Resolution, Girls- Child Education, Early Marriage and FGM.
