In the organisation my roles are to supervise daily activities, chair meetings,spokes person of the organisation (Executive Director) and legal officer. To join the net work i'm looking to have a chance for becoming member in the network of legal empowerment, part of the movement for legal empowerment, expecting to meet legal practitioners from around the world, access practical resources, join international learning exchanges and to get used of my legal skills to assist shape the laws for equal access to justice and protection of human rights in my country and world individually or through the umbrella of our organisation. Not only that but also I have the ambition of being a part towards implementation of various projects/activities initiated by the Legal Empowerment Network using any meet resources to assist people who fall in legal disputes especially to women,young girls,children,elders,disabled and indigents persons provided I get resources. Furthermore, if the network have various activities that requires organisation to perform as a leading organisation or partner it become easy for our organisation to be well recognized and have access to rob many ideas from members of the network for better end result of the project or activities. 100 Either my ambition of joining the net work is to join handful efforts in the struggle to rob injustice happening in my community,national and world in general in areas of democracy and rule of law and social protection . Another purpose of joining the network is to create or get sustainable development of our organisation interns of institutional capacity building through which I personally will be in a good position of showing more leadership skills,actions and ability to leader others regardless of their gender,ethnic,social ,political, economic and race differences. Lastly i have joined the network because in the recent world, networking is each and every thing that helps one to be seen as not isolated and a better platform to share good ideas with others including in any angle of good and difficulties one or an organisation experiences.
