The Women’s Probono Initiative (WPI) is a non profit women led organisation whose mission is to advance justice for women and girls through awareness creation, legal representation, research and knowledge sharing. WPI was founded in July 2018 to respond to the challenge of women and girls’ vulnerability and lack of awareness for how the justice system works when confronted with a case that requires legal redress. WPI thus carries out legal empowerment programs amidst communities, offers free legal representation to women and girls that have suffered sexual and gender based violence, promotes women’s rights and generates research and knowledge that can impact on policy and legal interventions in communities.
