PEOPLE ASSOCIATED WITH THIS ORGANIZATION

Farouk Hjabo

An occurring problem that my organization faces is lack of legal awareness among students and generally in the community, and corruption in many aspects of the government. Therefore, I would like to learn and get more experience to raise awareness, refine policies, and initiate several collective legal empowerment actions along with other stakeholders. Firstly, among my organization, and then scaling up to national/international wide collective actions.
