I AM A COMMUNITY BASED LAWYER WITH A VERY STRONG PASSION FOR THE RIGHTS OF THE MOST VULNERABLE, INDIGENT AND MARGINALIZED INDIVIDUALS AND COMMUNITIES PARTICULARLY PERSONS LIVING WITH DISABILITIES AND THE YOUNG PEOPLE.
I look forward to picking valuable lessons and best practices from other colleagues in the network in order to enrich our community legal empowerment programmes, particularly to amplify voices on the violations of rights of PWDs, scale up awareness of their rights and strengthen our current advocacy approaches for increased effectiveness.
Further, I look forward to building new strategic and rich networks and partnerships, collaborative research and publications, peer to peer evaluation of progress, as well as inspiring and mentoring other persons/ organizations into legal empowerment work.
