I am a social worker by profession. I currently lead LEMU as the Executive Director but prior to this, I have been involved in leading communities involved in making claims for land justice especially and family and community levels. I led LEMU's Community Land Protection Program for seven years (2009 - 2015) and became a part of how grassroots legal empowerment strategies actually empower and guarantee rights of communities in a context where accessing justice to land is getting more and more difficult. Some of the work done by LEMU, in partnership with Namati (then), became the grounding breaking approaches and standards for scaling up community land protection in others parts of the world. By joining the Legal Empowerment Network, I am looking forward to inspiring a new generation of legal empowerment practitioners at LEMU in how to see and use the various opportunities necessary for creating change and achieving land justice for the vulnerable members of the society through pursuing land justice.
