The Horn of Africa development Initiative (HODI) started in 2003 as a Community Based Organization (CBO), then, mainly acting as a legal aid desk but got registered in July 2007 as a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO). The decision to initiate HODI was motivated by the personal commitment amongst the founders to effectively address the growing severity and frequency of conflicts and general human rights violations in Northern Kenya that is aggravated by the limited possibilities for legal aid services. HODI was then concerned with amongst others provision of civic education, advocacy/ support for human rights as well as facilitation of alternative livelihood opportunities for poor/ vulnerable community members in Northern Kenya.



The organization aims to create and facilitate a network of stakeholders to participate in promoting, advocating and protecting human rights, and to foster development, social justice thereby enhancing human security in the Northern Kenya. The organization mainly works with poor marginalized women, youths, destitute, street children and other poor community members with cases but who cannot access the services of a lawyer.
