We are a Non-Governmental Organisation that provides legal aid in form of legal advice and representation for the vulnerable people. We are also committed to ending all forms of rights’ abuse for instance we are committed to ending Child & forced marriages, Domestic & Gender Based Violence among others. We also engage in empowerment activities for the vulnerable for instance skilliing in soft/ hand skills like baking so as to empower them & antidote them from becoming victims of what we stand against. We have a team of professional advocates, lawyers, counsellors, advisors etc who are committed to enable the organisation fulfill its objectives. We advocate for the rights of all people and when we get victims who have been abused, we give them professional counselling, help them to legally claim for compensation and righting the wrongs by their aggressors, we also give the victims medical where necessary and possible, we empower them through skilling so as to be able to fend for themselves and lead a confident worthwhile life after the abuse.

I am an advocate by profession. I am among the founders of the Organisation and I am its Managing Director. My role is to supervise the daily operation of the Organisation activities. I also assess the performance in relation to what is expected from the organisation. I give legal aid in form of legal advice, counselling and representation to the needy people in Courts of law. I also look out for partnerships and linkages between our organization and other organizations or people that can support us in achieving our goals. On this network am looking forward for the following: to hear new strategies from other members on how our organization can realise its objectives; to link our organisation with organisations or people that can support our activities in all possible ways; sharing of experience and impact of our works with other members; advice on how to legally empower both our organisation and the beneficiaries who we seek to support; learning from others on how to efficiently provide legal aid to those in need.
