Inherit Your Rights

Presence in: Tanzania
Focus: Generalist Legal Services, Labor & Employment, Traditional / Customary Justice, Women's Rights

Inherit Your Rights seeks to educate and empower individuals in Tanzania concerning basic human rights, and to represent those who are facing inequality and injustice. We work towards educating, representing and empowering disadvantaged individuals in the region with a focus on closing the inequality gap between men, women and children. We offer education programs on human rights, the law, and the inequalities women and children commonly face in Tanzania. We provide legal representation and advice to those facing injustice, and sponsor local Tanzanians through law school as part of our legal fellowship program.
