LEGAL AID & HUMAN RIGHTS AWARENESS PROJECT

The purpose of this project is to teach Vulnerable groups about their basic legal rights. These rights include the right to work, to an adequate standard of living, to participate in cultural and political life, to education and freedom of religion.

The Legal aid clinics coach and empower local community and vulnerable groups with the necessary knowledge of legal and court procedures to enable them to represent their cases in Court.
