About Us

MEDIA AID FOR INDIGENOUS AND PASTORALIST COMMUNITY (MAIPAC) is an organization formed by a journalist to empower indigenous and pastoralist communities because they have suffered from historical injustices as a result of their colonization and dispossession of their lands, territories, and resources, thus preventing them from exercising, in particular, their rights to development in accordance with their own needs and interest.

MAIPAC recognizes the urgent need to respect and promote the inherent rights of indigenous and pastoralist communities that derive from their economic and social structures and their cultures, spiritual traditions, histories, and philosophies especially their rights to their lands, territories, and resources.



MAIPAC is registered as a Non-Governmental Organization under the Non-Governmental Organizations Act, No. 24 of 2002 as amended from time to time. Registration: NGO/R/1485
