Asylum Access

Presence in: Tanzania
Focus: Gender-based violence

Asylum Access’s mission is to make human rights a reality for refugees. We believe all refugees deserve a fair chance at a new life. All over the world, we challenge barriers that keep refugees from living safely, moving freely, working and attending school — because when refugees can rebuild their lives, nations thrive.

Interests: Community / Customary Land Rights, Environmental Justice, Family, Gender-based violence, Generalist Legal Services
I'm a Tanzanian, lawyer by profession and a human rights activist based in Tanzania. I'm working more on child protection, women's rights and Human and Environmental rights. To ensure this, I have been working with different stakeholders at personal level and organizational level. I'm a facilitator on legal and human rights issues.

At organizational level, apart from providing legal aid to women and children, we have been training community paralegals to assist the members of the community at the grassroot/community level where access to justice and legal representation is limited.

By joining this network, I expect to lean more from others and, also to contribute my experience and challenges with others. I believe this is the right forum for understanding legal issues facing people in different parts of the world and different approaches in addressing them.
