We provide legal training for women's groups as well as men and community and religious leaders. 

Our aim is to educate these groups on topics concerning women's legal rights including:

  • basic human rights, including children’s rights

  • property rights and inheritance law

  • family law matters, including marriage, divorce, and child custody

  • domestic violence

Through education, our aim is to bring awareness to the inequalities experienced by women and girls and provide practical advice and assistance on the laws and channels that can be pursued to address injustices.


Our educational program also equips participants with the knowledge to become community paralegals. Paralegals are grassroots legal advocates who provide a bridge between the community and information about and access to their human rights, the law and the structures that implement this. As paralegals come from the community they are uniquely positioned to negotiate good and fair solutions empowering both individuals and communities.

We currently train community groups on two sets of curriculum: women's rights and children's rights. Training programs can take the form of a one day workshop on a particular area or cover the entire curriculum, staggered across several weeks. We can also create tailored lesson plans.
