ACCESS TO JUSTICE PROGRAM

This is the standout community legal awareness arm of the organization where pro-bono lawyers, law students and dedicated community leaders converge, interact with communities and meet players in the criminal justice system for impactful interventions on legal issues facing society. As justice defenders, our objective at the Access to Justice program is to ensure that all persons have equal access to justice, have basic knowledge of the law and know their their rights and obligations under the law.

We deliver on this through:

 

Sheria Mashinani Project

The Sheria Mashinani Project which is a partnership with the Strathmore University Law Clinic teaches comunities the law, their rights and responsibilities thus enabling and empowering them to articulate and effectively realise them. We leverage on technology to reach as wide a population in need of our services as possible.
