We are pleased to announce that Namati and the Global Legal Empowerment Network are among the recipients of the 2016 Skoll Award for Social Entrepreneurship.

According to the Skoll Foundation, the award is presented to leaders or organizations that are disrupting the status quo, driving large-scale “equilibrium” change, and are poised to create even greater impact on the world.

This is a generous recognition of the legal empowerment movement. We hope to use this opportunity to raise the profile of legal empowerment with a wider community of allies and supporters.

To further assist us with this goal, the Skoll team has made this wonderful five-minute video about the work of grassroots legal advocates.


The award ceremony will take place on Thursday, April 14th, 2016 during the Skoll World Forum in Oxford, England. If you would like to stay informed about our experiences at Skoll throughout the week, be sure to follow us on Twitter.
