I am a lawyer and a practicing advocate, enthusiastic about community legal education. As an advocate I'm appalled by the numbers of people in need of legal services but cannot afford to hire a lawyer let alone lacking the knowledge of their own fundamental rights. Ultimately the legal system does not serve the majority in any community. It instead serves as a tool for exclusion and injustice. My dream is to turn this around through community legal education. Let ordinary folks understand the legal system, its dynamics and limitations so that the strong, usually the rich do not manipulate their way and get away with it. Joining Namati I believe, will give me the network to strengthen my efforts and realize my dream.
