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.
