Am working with a Non-Governmental Organization called "Mamas' Hope Organization for Legal Assistance" (MHOLA) where by am working as the an Advocate/Barrister and Branch Manager in Karagwe and Ngara Districts. As the an advocate most of my roles are to empower the community on legal matters, provide legal assistance and legal representation in courts of law. our focus is mainly to women, children and marginalized within our society whose rights have been or is likely to be denied. in order to reach most of the community members, MHOLA uses the trained paralegals who are found in every Ward within the area of operation so that to empower the community members to know the law, institutions and later shape their life after they have clearly utilized all means available to access their rights.

With this network on behalf of MHOLA team we are looking for more networking with like-minded organizations and Donors who can join hands with us in helping the community in legal empowerment within our area in Ngara and karagwe District in Kagera Region (Tanzania) where there is still great violence of women and children rights particularly on Gender based Violence, Property Ownership and unbearable customs sorrounding the community.
